For the F 800S, two different suspensions have been produced with WP Suspension. Apart from the sports suspension, an important alternative is a rear spring strut which clearly reduces the height of the F 800S and in combination with the Superbike handlebar conversion, forms a great ergonomics package for riders of both sexes who need a lower seating height.

The aerodynamics have also been taken further. In the Twinstar F 800S, the original handlebar faring has been supplemented with a keel with side parts for full covering. It fits neatly on the standard cover. Engine cooling is ensured by refined air openings. 

Sporting riding without carrying the whole weight on your lower ams is the wish of many riders. To meet this wish, a Superbike handlebar conversion has been developed which with its tapered handlebars and full black anodizing not only looks sophisticated but also ensures sporting performance with very little strain on the rider. This handlebar conversion has been adapted for both the Sprintstar and the Twinstar. The Superbike handlebar conversion includes all components necessary for fitting.

To give the necessary deep note, there are high performance racing exhaust systems made completely from titanium or stainless steel, which in track use provide that powerful extra thrust. Street-legal exhaust systems with removable sound insert, with and without catalyst, are included in the range and give the new AC Schnitzer models the final visual and acoustic touch on the road.
