Buyer’s Guide Model Detail

Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
A basic naked bike built around BMW's 798 cc parallel twin. The F800R has ride-by-wire throttle, two riding modes (Rain and Road) as standard, and a third mode (Dynamic) as an option. There's also a new exhaust, some cosmetic changes, new gauges, and other odds and ends. It's the bike of choice for stuntman Chris Pfeiffer. We're surprised it hasn't had the 850 engine installed yet, but that's probably only a matter of time.
