BMW'S F 800: TOURER, CUSTOM, ADVENTURER & STUNT STAR.



First introduced in 2006, with the widely-praised F 800 S, BMW's 798cc parallel- twin motor has gone on to power everything from roadsters to tourers and adventure bikes.

But sometimes it gets glossed over in favour of its bigger and more-famous brother: the Boxer engine. Here are a few things it's worth knowing about the unstoppable F-series bikes.



THEY MAKE INCREDIBLE CUSTOM BIKES.


Classic models and the R nineT may be the most popular customised BMWs at the moment, but there's a huge variety of custom BMW F 800 models out there - and some of them have been absolutely transformed by their creators.








THEY'RE VERSATILE.



The F 800 motor can be found in the F 800 R, F 800 GT & F 800 GS / GS Adventure. It makes 85-90bph and it's torquey, fun and very easy to ride.

It even finds a home in the F 700 GS, where a lightly detuned version of the motor makes the perfect introductory motorbike- one that's used at our BMW Rider Training school to help hundreds of riders get their licence.

THEY'RE ACTION HEROES.





Just ask Mattie Griffin & Christian Pfeiffer! Two of the world's best stunt-riders use the F 800 R - and they do thinks you wouldn't think are possible on two wheels.


THEY'RE THE PERFECT NEW RIDER BIKE.




When we put together the industry-leading New Rider Offer, we had to choose a motorcycle to headline it. There was only one choice: the revised 2015 F 800 R

Exclusively for new riders, BMW Motorrad UK is offering a package including your motorcycle training and test, head-to-toe motorbike kit worth £2,680 for just £500 if you purchase a new BMW F 800 R - or any other model - through BMW Select.


THEY WERE THE STAR OF THE GS TROPHY.




The F 800 GS was the star of the 2008, 2010 & 2012 BMW GS Trophy International finals. Teams from all over the world travelled to far-flung destinations and put the F 800 GS to the ultimate test. 

And, often, the competitors fell in love with their F 800 and took it home afterwards!


THEY CAN TOUR THE WORLD.





The BMW F 800 GT is the perfect middleweight sports-tourer, offering comfort, performance, fuel economy and more. BMW Motorrad UK is now offering an exclusive F 800 GT SE version, featuring the following as standard for £10,250 OTR:


  • Electronic Suspension Adjustment
