The 2015 BMW F800R carries the same 798cc engine as the previous model, but power is up 3bhp to 90bhp@8000rpm. Peak torque for the water-cooled, in-line twin remains at 63lb-ft@5800rpm.
The motor also benefits from shorter ratios in first and second, for faster acceleration from a standstill. Forks are now upside down, with radial calipers fitted. The seat has also been lowered by 10mm to 800mm, along with new handlebars and foot pegs, said to improve ergonomics.
The bike is aimed at novice riders, and has been redesigned along with new-style, lighter wheels. ABS is standard, with Automatic Stability Control and Electronic Suspension Adjustment available as optional extras.
