‘XR’ stands for an uncompromising mix of sportiness and touring capability. The new BMW F 900 XR’s thrilling design reflects pure performance and the promise of long-distance travelling comfort with riding position that is impressively active yet relaxed. The striking light guides of the LED headlight emphasises the commanding nature of the bike. The fairing along with precise edges define the bike’s aggressive design while the slim and short tail invokes its athletic nature.
The new BMW F 900 XR is powered by water-cooled 4-stroke in-line 2-cylinder 895 cc BS6 engine with four valves per cylinder, two overhead camshafts and dry-sump lubrication. With an output of 105 hp (77 kW) at 8500 rpm and maximum torque of 92 Nm at 6500 rpm, the engine enhances sporty riding dynamics and pleasure. The high torque engine offers just the right speed range to get the most fun out of the power. The motorcycle sprints from 0-100km/hr in just 3.6 seconds and achieve a top speed of over 200 km/hr.
The suspension is technological benchmark in the mid-range segment. The bridge frame integrates the 2-cylinder in-line engine as a load-bearing element and is made of deep drawn and welded sheet steel parts. Front wheel control is taken care by upside-down telescopic fork, while the rear wheel is guided by a double-sided swinging arm with central suspension strut. The bolt-on steel rear frame gives a visually short and slim rear. The short underfloor silencer renders a typical athletic look with a free-standing rear wheel.
The Multifunctional instrument cluster with 6.5-inch full-colour TFT screen of the new BMW F 900 XR offers an unrivalled level of quality in terms of display and information in its segment. BMW Motorrad Multi-Controller gives the rider quick access to vehicle and connectivity functions. Mobile phone and media functions can be used without having to install an app. The rider can easily make telephone calls and music playback with Bluetooth connection. In addition, the bike is equipped with BMW Motorrad Connectivity App, practical arrow navigation with route import and multiple waypoint guidance on the display.
