2012 BMW Motorcycle Wallpaper

When the designers at BMW Motorrad went to work on the original 2009 F 800 R naked sportbike, they had one basic concept – build a sporty and agile roadster with great fuel mileage.

And for 2012 model, BMW continued this concept, but added provided F800R fans with a visual makeover.

The major visual changes on the parallel twin are newly designed front side trim sections in the same color as the body, the spring of the rear strut finished in red, white direction indicators and a sport windshield in the same color as the body.

Besides that, the F800R remains untouched, from its aluminum frame and double swing arm to the 798cc liquid-cooled, four-valve parallel twin that produces 87 horsepower at 8,000 rpm.

Attached above is wallpaper of the 2012 BMW F800R; for a preview, click here.
