BMW F 900 XR Sports Tourer: Image Gallery
Here are some detailed images to give you a better idea of what the BMW F 900 XR is all about
BMW Motorrad just launched one of its first BS6-compliant models in India, the F 900 XR. It’s available in two variants, standard priced at 10.50 lakh and the pro Package at Rs 11.50 lakh. The F 900 XR may look like a toned-down version of the S 1000 XR, but there’s more to the sports tourer than meets the eye. Hence, we’ve compiled several detailed images to give you a broader perspective of the F 900 XR.
The BMW F 900 XR’s design is largely influenced by the Concept 9Cento which was showcased in 2018. The idea was to combine the attributes of touring with the adrenal rush that sports bikes offer. The bike had to be a tourer with the agility and lightness of a sportbike without seeming plump and slow -- all while portraying an aggressive character.
The front fascia comprises a small beak with split LED headlamps running LED DRLs. You could even integrate the corner lamps into the headlight with the pro package.
The pro pack or variant also gets you keyless ignition for added convenience.
The tail light and turn indicators are LED units as well.
Then there’s the 6.5-inch full-colour TFT-screen which comes with Bluetooth connectivity. It allows riders to navigate, listen to music, and even answer calls.
The tinted windscreen can be manually adjusted to suit the rider’s height and deflect wind more effectively.
The bike is powered by a bored-out 853cc parallel twin engine which now displaces 895cc with 105PS of power and 92Nm of peak torque.
The base F 900 XR comes with two ride modes (Road, Rain), ASC Automatic Stability Control, and adjustable brake and clutch levers as standard. However, if you opt for the pro variant, BMW will throw in features like ABS Pro, Dynamic Traction Control (DTC), Engine Braking Control (EBC), Dynamic Brake Control (DBC), and the new engine drag torque control (MSR).
The F 900 R features a new steel frame with a 43 upside-down fork and a monoshock.
If you shell out an additional Rs 1 lakh for the pro variant, BMW will offer the bike with dynamic ESA. In other words, an electronically adjustable monoshock which can be tweaked on the fly.
Twin 320mm disc brakes up front and a single 265mm disc brake at the rear, paired with dual-channel ABS, handle braking duties.
BMW offers various seats height options along with the optional lowering feature which would be perfect for shorter riders.
If you love touring, you could slap on a pair of panniers and a top box and you’re good to go.
Last but not the least, the BMW F 900 XR is available in two sporty liveries: white and red.
