The one that is very interesting is the BMW F 800 R that comes with liquid-cooled parallel twin with a capacity of 798 cc, 4-valve technology, DOHC engine that can maxes out 87bhp at low range of 8,000 RPM. The torque is rated at 86Nm @ 6,000 RPM. One particular distintive feature for a BMW naked/tourer bike is the use of dual size headlamp that looks different that other bike that we can see in the market but also a recognisable feature of the BMW bikes. The F 800 R is particularly interesting not because of the specs and quality of the bike only, but because this F 800 R is priced at RM46,888 (OTR excluding insurance). This level of price has never being thought of for a bike from BMW that is in 800cc category.

I keep watching the bike to find what model the bike is and found out that it is BMW F 800 R. The headlight is unmistakenly BMW that shows one big right headlight and one small left headlight. This particular model from 2011 is ‘pure’ in terms of the design direction where it is still conventionally BMW.  Continue reading “2011 BMW F 800 R featured in Korean King of Drama series”
