Is There A Problem?

BMW F900XR

The latest addition to the 'XR' family, running alongside the S1000XR.

Typical BMW Attributes

A lot of thought has gone into the overall desugn and it's difficult to find any significant argument against it

Impeccable road manners

The F900XR complements the S1000XR perfectly, being a beguiling blend of comfort, handling and performance

So, what's the problem?

Nothing specific, but the fact that the engine is made by Loncin in China might put some potential customers off.

Are we overreacting?

Possibly, yes. Only time will tell if we were right to be concerned or if we are simply being prejudiced

FInal verdict

It's a brilliant bike and it's a shame that there are question marks. It continues the XR tradition of practicality and ability
