BMW Motorrad have done a ‘visual upgrade’ on the 2012 F800R. ‘Technically, the new F800R will retain its well proven concept. The engine is still the liquid-cooled parallel twin with 4-valve technology and a capacity of 798cc. The highly distinctive engine provides impressive pulling power, a spontaneous response and a low level of fuel consumption. The engine output is 87bhp at 8000rpm and 86Nm of torque at 6000 revs,’ says the press note from BMW. ABS is an optional extra on the 177kg (dry) Beemer. Available in Alpine white/Black satin gloss, Magma red/White aluminium metallic matt and Mineral silver metallic paint options, the 2012 BMW F800R is priced at 8,400 euros and will hit the dealerships this December.
