BMW F900R / F900XR (2020 onwards)

The BMW F900R and the BMW F900XR models are new to the BMW Motorrad range.

The main BMW F900R and F900XR models are, in fact, too powerful to be ridden on an A2 license. However, BMW has released A2 compliant versions called the F900R/A2 and the F900XR/A2, which have slightly lower power and can be restricted down to 48 hp.

The main models produce around 105 hp and 77 kW of power, but BMW wanted to make the F900R and F900XR available to A2 riders.

The BMW F900R A2 and F900XR A2 compliant models produce 95 hp and 70 kW of power. This can be restricted by 50% to be within the A2 license limits.

Please note that the below specifications are for the A2 compliant BMW F900R / F900XR models, rather than the main 105 hp models.


You will need a restrictor to ride the BMW F900R / F900XR on an A2 license. See the BMW F900R / F900XR specifications table for restriction info, and the restrictor kits section to see what restrictors are available for the BMW F900R / F900XR.
