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 F800S. Enjoy!
