2016 BMW F 800 R

Updated last year, the BMW F 800 R sporty parallel twin was given a bit more top-end power, revised gear ratios, new inverted forks, new radial front brakes, a longer wheelbase, and a degree more rake than the version it replaces.

The bodywork has been changed and the seat lowered, plus there are new aluminum handlebars and lighter wheels. If you want to take the F 800 R out for some sport touring, sport and touring side cases are available as options, along with a 7+ gallon top case.

An optional “safety package” that includes traction control, electronic suspension adjustment, and tire pressure monitors.
