Looking for a sporty naked motorcycle? Then you should take a closer look at the new BMW 800R which is one of the most appreciated models in its class. The F800R was developed to offer a great mix between the highway and urban driving.
Naturally, the motorcycle’s center piece is represented by the 798 cc, 2-cylinder engine which rewards you with ground breaking performance and a tasty exhaust note. The engine cranks out 87 hp and 63 ft-lb of torque and is paired with a constant mesh 6-speed gearbox integrated into crankcase. Thanks to its capable engine, the motorcycle is able to reach a maximum speed of over 125 mph and the fuel consumption is also pretty good being rated at 65 mpg (calculated with a constant speed of 55 mph).
The sporty package is completed by top notch ergonomics, a firm chassis, standard ABS and a perfectly balanced geometry.
