BMW F800S & F800ST (2006 - 2013)

The BMW F800S and F800ST might be twins, but they’re far from identical.

The F800ST features full fairing for sports touring, the F800S boasts sporty fairing, making it easy to tell them apart. (The yellow motorbike is the F800S and the blue bike is the F800ST).

The two bikes don’t disappoint. The engine, handling and style are all excellent qualities of the BMW F800S and F800ST.

Both bikes look great, handle well and are now affordable choices for well-seasoned riders, as well as those who wish to restrict the bikes for their A2 license.
