2020 BMW F900R & F900XR - Here's what we know about them
Walkaround | The F850GS engine plus bigger bore and sporty attitude
BMW Motorrad unveiled a whole new family at the EICMA - the F900R (the roadster) and the F900XR (the sport-tourer). They share the same engine - the unit is derived from the F850GS inline-twin, but they're coming in different shapes.
When it comes to the looks, the F900R is inspired by its bigger brother - the R1250R - the headlight and the fairings are following the same design line. But instead of the boxer, we have a parallel twin 105 horsepower engine, ready to thrill the more experienced riders but easy to be tamed for the A2 category in Europe.
The F900XR comes in a high-position sport-touring shape, and, you guessed it, it resembles the new S1000XR (we'll talk about it later). I was impressed by its compact dimensions, and it seems to be great for beginners - easy to reach the ground, easy to handle.
Watch the video below for more insights about the new F900R and F900XR. There's also an interview on the engine and set-up, so check it out.
