BMW F900XR [2023] is expected to launch in India in August 2022 in the expected price range of ₹ 12,40,000 to ₹ 12,50,000. Currently available bikes which are similar to F900XR [2023] are BMW F900XR, Ducati Multistrada V2 & Triumph Tiger 850 Sport.

BMW Motorrad has updated its Ducati Multistrada V2-rival, the F 900 XR in the international market. The latest iteration of this sport-touring motorcycle from the Bavarian manufacturer gets cosmetic changes in the form of new paint options.

The 2023 BMW F900XR gets three colours in the international markets – Racing Blue Metallic, Triple Black, and Light White. The styling, on the other hand, remains unaltered. Thus, the 2023 BMW F 900 XR continues to pack the S 1000 XR-inspired design that includes a twin-pod headlight, adjustable windscreen, semi-fairing, engine cowl, step-up seat, and side-slung exhaust.

The mechanical specifications, too, remain unchanged. Thus, the 2023 BMW F 900 XR continues to use a Euro5/BS6-compliant 895cc, parallel-twin cylinder, liquid-cooled motor that makes 103.2bhp at 8,500rpm and 92Nm of peak torque at 6,500rpm. The feature list retains full-LED lighting, Bluetooth-enabled 6.5-inch full-colour TFT screen, ABS, traction control, riding modes pro, keyless ride, engine brake control, adaptive cornering lights, as well as heated grips.

The 2023 F900 XR is currently available in select international markets. While the Indian launch details are not available yet, we can expect to see the 2023 iteration of the motorcycle on our shores by late 2022 or early 2023. Once launched, the motorcycle will rival the likes of Ducati Multistrada V2, Triumph Tiger 900 GT range, and Kawasaki Versys 1000 in the Indian market.

BMW F900XR [2023] Review 2022 : Specification

BMW has not fiddled with the 895cc, parallel-twin, BS6 compliant engine. This is a good thing because it already generates 103.2 hp of peak power and 92 Nm of peak torque. With the various riding modes available on hand, this power is enough for this mammoth of a bike.

On the feature front, the rider aids like full-LED lighting, 6.5-inch Bluetooth-equipped TFT instrument cluster, engine brake control, adjustable USD forks, adaptive cornering lights, and keyless ride make up for the rivals.

BMW F900XR [2023] Review 2022 : Impressive Looks

As we mentioned earlier, apart from the new colour option, the F 900 XR does not get any mechanical changes. Thus, it continues to use the same 895cc liquid-cooled, parallel-twin 4-valve DOHC motor. The engine produces max power of 105 HP at 8,500 rpm and max torque of 92 Nm at 6,500 rpm. The gearbox on the F 900 XR is a 6-speed unit with an anti-hopping clutch.

As for suspension, it uses 43 mm upside-down forks at the front with 170 mm of travel. Meanwhile, the rear uses a preload and rebound damping adjustable monoshock with 172 mm of travel. As for the brakes, the F 900 XR uses dual 320 mm discs with 4-piston radial callipers at the front and a single 265mm disc with a single-piston calliper at the back.

The F 900 XR measures 2,160 mm in length, 860 mm in width and 1,320-1,420 mm in height. The kerb weight of the bike is 219 kg. The seat height is 825 mm. However, there are various lowering kits and low seat height options available.

The F900 XR rides on a 120/70 front and 180/55 section rear tyre. As for the wheels, it uses 17-inch cast aluminium wheels at both ends.

The F 900 XR is a beautiful machine. It stays away from the traditional bulky ADV design and opts for a more athletic approach. It’s narrow, with a beautifully designed front cowling. And there are no added panels in the wrong places. If you think the Ducati Multistrada is beautiful, then I am sure that you fill find the F 900 XR majestic.

BMW F900XR [2023] Review 2022 : Powertrain & Range

The 2023 BMW F 900 XR has a muscular fuel tank, fairings with vents, a side-mounted exhaust, heated grips, adaptive cornering lights, and a raised windscreen.
The bike packs an all-LED setup for lighting, a Bluetooth-enabled 6.5-inch full-color TFT instrument console, and rides on cast aluminium wheels. It is up for grabs in Racing Blue Metallic, Triple Black, and Light White color options.

The 2023 BMW F 900 XR is fueled by an 895cc, parallel-twin cylinder engine that generates a maximum power of 103.2hp at 8,500rpm and a peak torque of 92Nm at 6,500rpm. The motor is linked to a 6-speed gearbox.

The 2023 BMW F 900 XR is equipped with disc brakes on both wheels to ensure the rider’s safety. It also gets ABS, engine brake control, traction control, and riding modes for better handling. Suspension duties on the motorcycle are taken care of by 43mm inverted telescopic forks on the front side and a preload-adjustable shock absorber on the rear end.

BMW F900XR [2023] Review 2022 : Performance

The F 900 XR blends the best of sporty riding with easy touring by offering you a wonderful riding position. The seat is certainly not the best for highway touring, as it feels a little hard, but you can always opt for a more comfortable seat. Also, you can choose the seat height. The PRO variant of the F 900 XR we rode offers electronic suspension at the rear. The Road setup makes the suspension pretty good for Indian conditions. It can soak up bumps and ride smoothly over uneven road surfaces, but it doesn’t feel great when you go off-road, which is something you should do as little as possible. The XR demands to be ridden on the tarmac. Even though the front suspension is non-adjustable it feels great. If you want to push the bike a little harder you can do so easily, and even in Road mode, the suspension feels pliant at high cornering speeds. In the Dynamic setup, the rear stiffens up to offer better control and stability. It’s only marginally felt though, but once you hit broken roads you can feel it, and it’s not pleasant.

The powerful engine is mated to a 6-speed transmission, and in the PRO variant, it also gets a quick-shifter. It works wonderfully and allows you to effortlessly shift through gears when you are pushing the bike. There is no jerkiness felt at all when you downshift quickly, which only enhances your ride. The XR handles really well, thanks to its lightweight and narrow frame. I was attacking corners with ease and great confidence. It doesn’t have the most direct sensations or feedback you would expect from a proper sports machine, but the front-end is very responsive and obeys your every command.

For allowing you to ride easily, the PRO variant also comes with Cruise Control, and it works just good as any other system in a BWM Motorrad motorcycle. There is also switchable Traction Control and Dual Channel ABS, which allows you to ride without any worries on the highway. The bike is very easy to ride, and because of its proportions, easy handling, and comfortable ergonomics, it can also be ridden in the city on an everyday basis.

BMW F900XR [2023] Review 2022 : Riding & Comfort

The BMW F 900 XR sits in the Adventure category of the 2022 BMW lineup, but this is a middleweight sport touring machine with a GS-like riding position.

The design of the F 900 XR definitely carries a European-made feel, providing a sense that carving corner after corner for many kilometers would be very comfortable behind the fairing. With 99 hp from the 895cc parallel-twin, it is nice to have Rain/Road riding modes and stability control as standard features.

The new BMW F 900 XR is offered with three packages – Comfort, Dynamic and Active. The motorcycle gets a twin-pod headlamp, a semi-fairing design and a tinted windscreen, a step-up seat and a side-slung exhaust. In terms of features it gets full LED lighting, keyless ride, adaptive cornering lights, heated grip and a Bluetooth-enabled 6.5-inch full-colour TFT screen. The motorcycle also gets a plethora of safety tech such as ABS, traction control, riding modes pro, and engine brake control among other features.

excellent 6.5-inch color TFT display carries over from the 2020 model, and standard features include two riding modes (Road and Rain) and BMW’s proprietary ASC traction control technology, a welcome addition in wet-weather. ABS and BMW’s Dynamic Brake Control (DBC) and Engine Brake Control (EBC) also come standard, improving stability when emergencies or poor judgment threaten to unsettle the bike. Emergency braking can lead to pulling hard on the brake lever before fully rolling off the throttle, engaging DBC, which will inhibit throttle inputs helping the brakes do their job. Dumping the throttle, especially mid-corner, can lead to rear-wheel slip, and the EBC system regulates throttle response, optimizing grip.

A host of optional electronic aids adds to the XR’s usability and final price. Our test bike benefits from the Premium Package option, adding $2,400. The Select Package ($950) includes ABS Pro and Ride Modes Pro–enabling Dynamic Engine Brake Control and Dynamic Traction Control (DTC). In addition, it also includes cruise control, side-bag mounts, heated grips, and a factory-installed BMW GPS mount, compatible with the new Navigator VI system. ABS Pro is BMW’s intelligent system and processes data received from an IMU sensor to account for the bike’s lean angle when calculating intervention levels, especially useful in wet and slippery conditions. Ride Modes Pro adds Dynamic and Dynamic Pro to the rider mode menu. These enable reduced and programmable dynamic EBC and ASC intervention, allowing the good and the brave to drift and pop wheelies with abandon.

Our Opinion

BMW still worth considering, if you’re looking for a streetbike that’s very easy to ride, nimble, compact, and versatile enough to run errands well around town. If that’s what you want from a light-duty tourer that’s fun on sporty stretches of roads, then this F 900 XR might be good for you.
