The BMW F800R is a naked motorcycle introduced by BMW Motorrad in 2009. It is the newest addition to the F-series, which includes the F800S, the dual-sport F800GS & F650GS, and the sport touring F800ST.

The F800R was first introduced when Streetbike freestyle World Champion, Chris Pfeiffer started using the custom bike for his tricks. Pfeiffer first started using a BMW F800S in January 2006, and eventually transformed the S into an R model in order to lighten the weight of the bike and make it more suitable for motorcycle stunt riding. In honor of Pfeiffer, BMW is offering a limited edition of 68 Chris-Pfeiffer-Edition BMW F800R models,[1] which has custom paintwork and an Akrapovič exhaust.[2]
