the new F 900 R and F 900 XR are powered by a 2-cylinder in-line engine first
introduced in 2018 in the F 850 GS, now with 105 hp and an even fuller torque
curve. The main factor here is an increase in capacity to 895 cc (previously
853 cc). With an ignition distance of 270/450 degrees and a new under floor
silencer system, the engine offers a particularly emotional sound.
addition to the standard anti-hopping clutch, the new F 900 R and F 900 XR can
be fitted with engine drag torque control (MSR) for the first time. It prevents
the rear wheel from slipping as a result of abrupt throttling or downshifting,
thereby ensuring even greater safety.
motorcycles come with two standard riding modes, Automatic Stability Control (ASC)
and Anti Lock Braking System (ABS). They have riding modes Pro with Dynamic
Traction Control (DTC), ABS Pro, Dynamic Brake Control (DBC) and Motor Slip
Regulation (MSR) as ex works options. The new F 900 R and F 900 XR already
offer the “Rain” and “Road” riding modes as standard. The standard trim also
includes ABS and ASC, which is disengageable.
the GS models in the F Series, the new F 900 R and F 900 XR make use of a steel
bridge frame that integrates the engine as a load-bearing element and a fuel
tank that is now back in its classic position in front of the rider. Front
wheel control is taken care of by an upside-down telescopic fork, while the
rear wheel is guided by a double-sided swinging arm with central suspension
light, plastic-welded fuel tanks with a capacity of 15.5 litres (F 900 XR) and
13 litres (F 900 R) are a world first in motorcycle construction. The bolt-on
steel rear frame has also been newly developed for the F 900 R and F 900 XR in
order to create a visually short and slim rear. While the new F 900 R is a
dynamic roadster focusing on sporty use and therefore shorter spring travel,
the new F 900 XR – with its somewhat longer spring travel – offers a noticeable
increase in comfort and therefore an even wider range of potential uses.
the BMW Motorrad Dynamic ESA (Electronic Suspension Adjustment), available as
an optional extra and almost unique in these vehicle segments, it is possible
to further enhance the dynamic riding experience, riding comfort and also
touring and passenger suitability, since the damping of the rear spring strut
is automatically adapted to the conditions depending on riding state and
Cornering Light unique in the mid-range segment as part of the optional extra
Headlight Pro. Powerful LED lighting units all round as standard. Even greater
safety is offered by the Adaptive Cornering Light as a component of Headlight
Pro, which is unique in the mid-range and comes as an optional extra ex works.
Here, the rider benefits from improved illumination of the road when cornering
for even safer riding at night. All lighting units in the new F models are
based on LED technology as standard.
readable colour 6.5-inch TFT screen with BMW Motorrad Connectivity comes as
standard. The BMW Motorrad developers attached great importance to optimum
readability for the instrument cluster – even in difficult lighting conditions.

unmatched. The graphics on the screen are visually adapted to the sporty
on-road world. Additional Core screens are available in conjunction with the
optional Pro riding modes. The standard BMW Motorrad Connectivity is a unique
