2009 BMW F800S

“Serious sporting” – with the BMW F 800 S common sense takes on a sporty edge.

The BMW F800 S has the all-round ability to take you through the city without hassle and gives you plenty of power for a weekend trip for two, yet always willing to take on your favourite local roads.

But an all-rounder has rational benefits too: it needs to be uncomplicated, reliable, low-maintenance and economical. You want it to be easy on the wallet and stress-free. Innovative functions and reliable, intelligent solutions are what characterise a real all-rounder – that’s the BMW F 800 S – and with the new lower seat height now available there’s a BMW Sport bike for everyone.

We call the combination of pleasure and common sense “serious fun”. And that’s just what the BMW F 800 S stands for. The entirely newly developed, powerful 85 hp parallel twin engine indulges you with speed and pulling power, while maintaining a low level of fuel consumption and meeting the most stringent environmental standards. The quiet toothed belt drive not only ensures loss-free power transmission
, but is also lower on maintenance than chain drive, with superior durability and is easy to change. The light chassis provides the ideal base for sporty handling – handy in town, directionally stable on country roads. ABS is available as an option. The sporty trim provides useful wind protection, the design of the fuel tank and seat line provides excellent ergonomics for the rider. Cool, fresh colours and a striking design round off the “fun” side of things.

Find out for yourself what “serious fun” feels like. Visit your BMW Motorrad dealer for a test ride on the F 800 S. Enjoy!

On the road

On the road, the F 800 GS offers impressive speed and acceleration with its six-speed gear box and parallel twin engine, delivering 85 horsepower and 62 lb/feet of torque. Features like heated hand grips, available ABS (which can be turned off when riding off-road) and an on-board computer provide the comfort and safety of a long-distance touring bike.

For off-road riding, the F 800 GS comes equipped with 21inch front and 17 inch rear wire spoked wheels, wide foot pegs, an underseat 4.2 gallon gas tank for better weight distribution, and a standard under-engine skid plate. Possessing the power-to-weight ratio of a high-performance enduro, the feisty F 800 GS is a lean, mean impressive handling machine – no matter where the road leads.

Rooted in BMW History
The F 800 GS is the latest addition to BMW Motorrad’s dual-sport model lineup. The bike follows in the footsteps of the highly acclaimed R 1200 GS – which traces its roots back to the early 1980s when BMW won the grueling Paris-Dakar rally four times with its trailblazing dual-purpose R 80 GS.

Since their debut in 2004, the versatile R 1200 GS and its rugged companion, the R 1200 GS Adventure, have earned praise from motorcycle enthusiasts and the press for their exceptional performance both on and off the road.

The R 1200 GS has earned award after award, including Cycle World’s Best Open Class Street Bike and the International Journalist’s Panel “Best Bike in the World.”
The R 1200 GS Adventure was named “Best Adventure Bike” three years in a row by editors of Motorcyclist Magazine.

Ready for Competition
With its wide range of enduro motorcycles and increasing numbers of riders who enjoy the “adventure sport” lifestyle, BMW Motorrad is celebrating 2008 as the “Year of the Enduro” by launching the BMW Motorrad International GS Trophy competition on new F 800 GS bikes.

The International GS Trophy is a skills-based contest with GS riders coming from all over the world for a final meeting to pick the best of the best in Tunisia, North Africa, October 15 – 24. The competition is not a race, but a lengthy and challenging ride, both on and off-road, through the rugged countryside of Tunisia.

The event will include numerous tests in individual riding skills and group teamwork to overcome natural and manmade obstacles in the course of the ride.

A team of six riders is selected to compete for the GS Trophy from each of the following BMW Motorrad markets: the United States, Germany, the UK, France, Italy and Japan.
