Along with the closely related BMW F800ST, other bikes in the F-bike range are the dual-sport F800GS, and the naked F800R.
It has the same frame, engine, and suspension as the F800S, but differs primarily in fairing design and handlebar type.
BMW developed with Rotax a 798 cc (48.7 cu in) parallel-twin engine with a 360 degree firing order.
This produced an exhaust note reminiscent of BMW's signature air-cooled boxer twins.
However, this firing order required both pistons to move up and down at the same time. To counter the significant inertia produced by the pistons reciprocating,
BMW devised a third vestigial connecting rod to a balance weight.
The result was a parallel twin with significantly reduced vibration compared with other parallel twin engine designs. The engine is oiled by a dry sump system, and a soft ignition-cut rev limiter engaged at 9,000 rpm.
BMW tuned the F800 series engine to run very lean, typically with air-fuel ratios in the range of 15:1 to 16:1.
This is why I installed a Rapid bike evo injection control.
With this module the engine runs much better and with more torque.
The F800ST has a low-maintenance belt drive and single sided swingarm.
