F800R ?? - December 7, 2010, 06:42 AM

Researching, yet again. I guess I cannot keep to 1 bike. I hear there is a disease for this? MBS?

Been looking at the F series bikes for a while, could never get a good deal on the F800ST and now BMW is releasing the F800R. Spring test rides are going to be fun.

BMW F800R
Yamaha FZ8
Honda CB100R (stateside 8??)

Read this on the BMW page, which raises a question? Seems contradictory!

Race Mode
Then contending with city traffic, the F 800 R has a "track" mode built into the onboard computer (note: only to be used with slick or treadless racing tires on a closed course facility). This mode can on be activated if the power plug is installed to the wiring harness.

Not bad, looks chunky/heavy though. I haven't searched for the weight BMW claims on these.



How's my posting? Please direct all concerns and inquiries to DCSBN's chief content manager, Hollywood, via PM.

"Light weight (only 390 lbs. dry), massive torque (the highest in its segment at 63 lbs/ft), and compact chassis offers agile and responsive handling."

I like the look. Those headlights look cool too.
