2006 BMW F800 ST

The F 800 ST, the new medium category sports touring bike, also has touring-oriented equipment. Unlike the sporty F 800 S there is full trim, a high windshield, an aluminium luggage bridge as standard. The raised handlebars of the F 800 ST ensure an ergonomically favourable seating position. This model’s comfort defines new standards in the medium category and means it is predestined for lengthy trips – either singly or with a pillion passenger.

The dry weight of the F 800 ST is under 190 kg, with a road-ready (DIN empty) weight below 210 kg. The two F models only differ in these technical specifications.

The newly designed 2-cylinder in-line engine, developed in collaboration with Bombardier-Rotax GmbH as a 4-valve unit, is also installed in the F 800 ST. A top performance figure above 60 kW (more than 80 bhp) and the corresponding revving capacity ensure that more ambitious sporty requirements are fulfilled. The high compression ratio of 12:1 and a combustion chamber design based on the new K engine mean that combustion is effective and low in emissions, as well as ensuring reduced fuel consumption.

The already well-established toothed belt drive (F 650 CS) has been chosen as the rear wheel drive for the new model series. Being maintenance friendly, smooth-running and light, it provides the optimum in terms of durability, efficiency, space requirements and weight in this performance class. A closed-loop three-way catalytic converter, state-of-the-art digital engine electronics and optional ABS are of course available too.

Hot on the heels of the sportiest Boxer ever – the R1200 S – comes a new sports middleweight machine that’s designed to offer serious fun to just about anyone, from commuters, to tourers and even those starting out in biking. Welcome to the new F800 series.

Having launched leading contenders in the superbike, enduro, touring and sports touring categories, BMW Motorrad has turned its attention to the sports bike middleweight class. Previously BMW had one major gap in its range. There was a huge hike between the single-cylinder F650 bikes and the 1200cc Boxers and four-cylinder motorcycles. Well now that gap has been filled with the new sports touring orientated F800 ST and the sporty half-faired F800 S models. At the heart of these machine is an all-new 800cc twin-cylinder engine that produces an impressive 85 hp and a punchy 86 Nm of torque, which is a perfect combination because the rider is able to surf the torque curve rather than constantly needing to change up and down the gearbox.

The 800’s engine is used as a load-bearing part of the chassis and incorporates Formula 1 technology. The main area of the engine to benefit from BMW’s involvement in F1 is the valves, which have been designed to be very strong at high speed, meaning there is less wear, a smoother torque curve and better fuel economy. In fact the 800cc engine is so economical that both bikes have a potential range of 200 miles from only a 16-litre fuel tank, which is where it can steal another march (and save owners money) over its rivals.


The F800 ST is the half-faired sports touring derivative and breaks with BMW tradition in a big way due to a powerful, torque-rich 798cc parallel-twin engine (the first in BMW’s history) and sophisticated new suspension system. At 187 kg dry, it’s also one of the lightest BMWs ever.

To make the F800 ST ownership as easy as the rest of the BMW range (while keeping weight to a minimum) the designers have fitted a belt-drive system. This system is far more practical as it doesn’t need the same constant lubrication and adjustment as the chain drives found on most modern bikes. It’s also lighter than the shaft-drive BMW generally favours.

The F800 ST has been designed with lower fairing for better aerodynamics and more wind protection while the position of the handlebars are set higher enabling the rider to sit more upright, which provides a better posture for long-distance travel as well as benefiting from a higher screen for additional protection from the elements. The new BMW F800 ST is available in two different colour options of Blue Metallic and Sunset Grapitan Metallic Matt and will be available to buy in dealer showrooms in the spring priced from £6,495 on the road. ABS is optional on the F800 ST for only £500 and a competitive BMW Finance and Insurance package will also be available.

Riding a motorbike is simply great fun. Whether you take a short sporty tour cross country, a trip through the city or a long holiday trip with luggage. That’s right – every ride means pure pleasure! This kind of versatility requires an all-rounder which gives the rider whatever is needed – both on winding neighbourhood roady and for fast motorway travel. But common sense is important too: economy, reliability and no complications are just as important as a great visual appearance and pure fun on the road – whether in the city or for sporty weekend tours. The BMW F 800 ST is just such a universal talent, combining pleasure and common sense.

Instantaneous power.

The Parallel Twin fitted to the BMW F 800 ST is a new high-tech, middleweight power plant. With a capacity of 798 cc, it delivers terrific punch right across the rev range. During development, the engineers didn’t seek to achieve as high a revving engine as they could, but to make the motorcycle as easy to control and ride as possible. As a result, fully 90% of the maximum torque of 86 Nm (at 5,800 rpm) is available from 5,000 rpm, while 62.5 kW (85 hp) ensures that all the excitement is transmitted directly to the road.


Through the long stroke design of the engine, exceptionally smooth torque delivery allows the rider to easily skip gears if desired. The high-performance cylinder head means the engine remains agile and responsive well into the upper rev range during sports-style riding. Rocker arms derived from Formula 1 technology play an important part in this, operating the two-cylinder engine’s eight valves. This reduces friction to a minimum, while boosting rpm stability to its maximum.


The low moving mass and the stiffness of the valve train expose individual components to lower stresses, meaning the BMW F 800 ST offer exceptionally low petrol consumption levels and impressive torque characteristic, while being extremely reliable. Dry sump lubrication ensures optimum oil supply in all riding situations and leads to a re-duction in the overall dimensions of the engine. The oil tank is located in the oil pan, which is sealed completely to the crankcase, meaning a separate oil tank is not necessary. As seen in the 1200 Series, the narrow width of the engine makes it possible to position the water pump to the right side of the cylinder head, reducing the number of short radiator hoses required.

For inexperienced riders, a reduction in engine power can be provided at no extra cost, achieved by way of a reduced throttle valve opening angle, so that the bike then outputs 25 kW (34 hp) at 7,000 rpm and 55 Nm at 3,500 rpm.

Truly entertaining.

Conventional telescopic forks with a diameter of 43 mm and 140 mm of travel look after front wheel guidance, suspension, damping and anti-dive control. High overlay of the stanchions and fork sliders gives a high level of stiffness and ensures outstanding roadholding, while the steering damper offers maximum stability, even during sports-style riding. The aluminium Delta Box frame used in the F 800 ST is extremely torsion-resistant and is responsible for the motorcycles’ precise, yet exhilarating handling.
A leader amongst bikes.


The engine is the fundamental strength of the F 800 ST. It accommodates an aluminium swinging arm which, in combination with the low-maintenance belt drive, is unique in this segment. The wide design of the eccentric rear wheel mounting ensures that the wheel is always held in the correct position lengthways. Fitting and removing the rear wheel is quick and simple, as is tightening the belt, and the fact that the belt drive and swinging arm complement each other so well leaves you free to concentrate on riding.

Easy access is provided to the handwheel, used to set the spring preload of the directly-linked single suspension strut, while adjusting the strut’s rebound damping is just as easy and can be performed without using any tools, meaning the machine can be quickly adapted to a variety of load conditions.

For those who enjoy taking their machine for longer journeys, the F 800 ST offers an attractive alternative to the F 800 S. It comes with a high windshield and full fairing, for better protection from the wind and rain. With its raised handlebars, the machine’s ergonomics are also much better suited to touring, whilst its large aluminium luggage rack offers extra space for your bags. The appearance of the wheels has also been redesigned to suit the look of the F 800 ST.

In the new BMW F 800 ST, a low-maintenance toothed belt drive is employed as a final drive, transmit – ting the power of the engine to the rear wheel. The belt has been developed from new, is especially wide and offers a particularly long service life. Once the correct tension has been set during initial inspection, it does not need to be changed until it’s time to replace the belt. Because the toothed belt is constantly tensed, any potential load change reaction is minimized, which is an additional advantage compared to traditional chain drives. At the rear wheel, the toothed belt runs over a stainless steel belt wheel into which is integrated a fourpart, asymmetrical damper, further minimising any load change reaction.
Total control. The brakes.
Pull up. Just to get your breath back.

A front braking system consisting of two 320-mm diameter brake discs plus high-grade, 4-piston hydraulically activated floating brake calipers, equipped with extremely hard-wearing sintered metal coatings, ensures precision control of the BMW F 800 S/ST when stopping. Alongside this, the foot brake is connected to a 265-mm rear brake disc featuring a precise single-piston floating brake caliper that is the last word in reliability. As well as looking great, steel flex brake hoses fitted as standard ensure constantly stable braking pressure, and for an even safer ride, you can choose to opt for the latest version of BMW Motorrad ABS. Weighing a mere 1.5 kg, it features linearly adjustable inlet valves for less brake lever and pedal vibration.
Sit pretty and enjoy the ride.
The ergonomics.

The standard seat on the F 800 ST stands 820 mm off the ground with a step length of 1,810 mm, making the motorcycles ideal for riders over 1.70 m, while a lowered seat of 790 mm and step length of 1,750 mm is also available. All motorcycle riders know that the wider the seat, particularly toward the front, the harder it is to get your feet on the ground – whatever the seat height. As a result, the seat of the F 800 ST has been optimized for step length so that it is markedly slimmer towards the front, giving more freedom of movement for sports-style riding and making it easier to touch the ground when stationary. However, the rear of the seat is broader, for increased comfort. The sitting position on the BMW F 800 ST is suitable for both smaller and larger riders. The ergonomic triangle formed by the footrests, seat and handlebars is designed to give comfortable and relaxing sports-style riding.
