Your resting heart rate: 92 Nm.
The racing line before your eyes and your gaze far ahead, you take every curve calmly and confidently. One after the other, again and again. Just typical #NeverStopChallenging. Well, if this insatiable desire for every straightaway, this drive to always go further, meet the right partners: The high-torque two cylinder in-line engine of the F 900 XR delivers between 4,500 and 8,500 rpm for 87 Nm. The optional Dynamic ESA delivers optimal suspension comfort and very stable handling. Those who press forward like this leave the others behind.
Visionary - literally.
The F 900 XR is setting standards when it comes to illumination. It has an adaptive cornering light - available for the first time in the mid-range segment. Placed in the newly developed striking LED headlamps, it provides perfect illumination for corners at a 7° angle: an obvious plus when riding at nights or with poor lighting conditions.
Numerous other innovations ensure a pleasant and relaxed ride. The Dynamic Brake Control (DBC) and Engine Braking Control (EBC) deliver more safety for emergency braking and for abrupt releases of the accelerator as well as sudden downshifts.
