You ride your motorbike for kicks. Whether you take a short sharp jaunt cross country, a trip through the city or a long holiday trip with luggage, every ride should be a pleasure. This kind of versatility requires an all-rounder that gives the rider whatever they need - both on winding local roads and for fast motorway travel. But practicalities are important too: economy and reliability are just as important as great looks and riding pleasure - whether in the city or on a sporty weekend away. The BMW F800 ST is just such an all-rounder, combining pleasure and common sense in equal measure. And now with the new low seat option available there's an F800 ST for everyone.
This is what a sports touring bike should look like - combining touring fun and comfort with an impressive sporty touch: elegant, functional trim with superb wind and weather protection. A
torquey, highly sophisticated parallel twin that meets the toughest environmental standards and loves to rev, yet is right up there when it comes to torque levels. The modern toothed belt drive gives loss-free power transmission and requires less maintenance than a chain drive, with higher durability. The chassis gives dynamic and stress-free pleasure on winding country roads, predictable handling in the city and can cover longer distances including longer stints on the motorway with a high degree of ride stability. And as one would expect from BMW, there are many intelligent accessory ideas available which will enable you to put together your own personal sports touring companion.
