You ride your motorbike for kicks.
Whether you take a short sharp jaunt cross country, a trip through the city or a
long holiday trip with luggage, every ride should be a pleasure. This kind of
versatility requires an all-rounder that gives the rider whatever they need -
both on winding local roads and for fast motorway travel. But practicalities are
important too: economy and reliability are just as important as great looks and
riding pleasure - whether in the city or on a sporty weekend away. The BMW F800
ST is just such an all-rounder, combining pleasure and common sense in equal
measure. And now with the new low seat option available there's an F800 ST for
This is what a sports touring bike should look like - combining touring fun and
comfort with an impressive sporty touch: elegant, functional trim with superb
wind and weather protection. A torquey, highly sophisticated parallel twin that
meets the toughest environmental standards and loves to rev, yet is right up
there when it comes to torque levels. The modern toothed belt drive gives
loss-free power transmission and requires less maintenance than a chain drive,
with higher durability. The chassis gives dynamic and stress-free pleasure on
winding country roads, predictable handling in the city and can cover longer
distances including longer stints on the motorway with a high degree of ride
stability. And as one would expect from BMW, there are many intelligent
accessory ideas available which will enable you to put together your own
personal sports touring companion.
Head to your BMW Motorrad dealer to test ride
the F800 ST - then you'll find out what we mean by "serious fun"!
This middleweight definitely goes the distance.
The twisties are yours to devour anywhere in the country aboard the new 85 bhp F
800 ST, which is the touring version of the lithe new F 800. With a full
fairing, high windshield and touring oriented ergonomics with raised handlebars,
bombing down any road you choose is as comfortable as it is thrilling. Two 320
mm diameter front brake disk and Brembo four piston hydraulic calipers, and with
optional ABS every ride stopping power is guaranteed. Add optional touring cases
and heated grips and you've got a bike that is fast, flickable, and above
extraordinarily capable. No matter where you want to ride, the sharp-handling F
800 ST gets you there, mile after mile.
You'd almost think that someone had sat down with pencil
and paper after riding the BMW F800ST and figured out how to give this BMW
motorcycle the name "BMW Fast" while maintaining the BMW Motorcycles designation
system. Whoever that was isn't being paid enough, because the cool factor of
that alone should be enough to whet anyone's appetite as to what other surprises
might be found in this 85 horsepower bottle rocket.
As it turns out, the BMW F800ST is full of surprises. As a full-fledged BMW
motorcycle street bike, the BMW F800ST is a confident and nimble performer,
allowing experienced riders to utilize all the thrills that the power and torque
of the BMW F800ST has to offer to muscle the bike around corners and curves,
navigate traffic, or blast down long country roads. Allowing an inroad for new
riders, however, is also on the BMW F800ST's agenda. Through the use of output
reduction in the BMW F800ST, power can be reduced to as little as 34 horses,
while torque reduction dips to as little as 40.3 lb/ft @ 3,500 RPM. That's a
sizable allowance that the BMW F800ST affords new riders for learning, bringing
the BMW F800ST out of the simple ranks of mid-size, and elevating it to the
vaunted land of "Potential first motorcycle." While experienced riders have
often scoffed at small motorcycles, the truth is that you have to learn somehow,
and big bikes aren't the place to do it. BMW motorcycles, with the F800ST has
made it possible to increase the enjoyment and ridability of a starter bike that
could prove to double the number of years that a rider stays on this bike before
wanting to upgrade.
