2010 BMW F800R with aftermarket exhaust. Very tidy bike for its age and only has 15,000 ks.
The nearly-vertical, 798-cc parallel twin-cylinder relies on the same technologies and advancements as the K1300 engine, particularly with regard to the cylinder head, intake system, ignition and injection mapping, and semi-dry sump lubrication system (the oil supply is held in the transmission, a separate chamber from the crank). Other F800 models use a dry sump with external tank, which is heavier and more complex. The engine of the F800R also produces two additional horsepower while peak torque arrives 200 rpm later. Furthermore, the 6-speed transmission gets shorter ratios for the three higher gears in order to deliver stronger high-speed accelerations to counter the naked bike’s reduced aerodynamic performance.
n terms of ergonomics, the newcomer offers a lower seat (800 mm vs. 820 for the ST and 850 for the GS) and a slightly more upright riding position (compared to the ST) thanks to closer-mounted handlebars. The footpegs are in the exact same spots as those of the S and ST.
