The new 2013 BMW F800R is one of the most appreciated naked models in its class. The bike is powered by a capable 798cc, liquid-cooled, four-valve parallel twin engine which cranks out 87 horsepower at 8,000 rpm, and 63 ft. lbs. of torque at 6,000 rpm. The motor features 12:1 compression ratio, and is mated on a six-speed transmission.
The engine is mounted on a strong yet light, aluminum frame which is combined with a dual swing arm and a 59.8-inch wheelbase. Thanks to the low weight and the firm, stable chassis the bike has a perfectly balanced geometry and rewards its rider with superior agility.
The motorcycle is kept in check by dual 320mm Brembo discs up front squeezed by four-piston calipers, and a single 265mm disc out back. Needless to say that you also get standard ABS.
Other upgrades for 2013 include a new radiator side trim, white turn indicators, a sports windshield and a wheel cover in the same color as the body. The bike is offered with starting price of $10.840.

Totalmotorcycle ---- "The new F 800 R is radically different, and yet every inch a BMW. The state-of-the-art parallel twin engine with electronic fuel injection develops 87hp from its 798cc, not to mention a mighty 86Nm of torque. And with the deep, throaty exhaust tone, its sound is every bit as impressive as it performs."
Ultimatemotorcycle ---- "When the BMW F 800 R debuted in 2009, it expanded on the Bavarian motorcycle manufacturer’s popular parallel twin line. This smaller BMW roadster provided riders with agility, sporty performance and impressive fuel mileage (about 55 mpg)."
