BMW F900 Sport Editions Announced - But There’s a Catch

The F900 R and F900 XR Sport Editions take the styling of the M1000 R and M1000 XR and bring it to the mid-weight platform

The BMW F 900 R and F 900 XR M-Sport Editions

Two new bike inspired by BMW's M-Editions have been announced by BMW Motorrad France, taking the manufacturer’s mid-weight models, and elevating them with revised styling and additional parts. The two bikes are officially called 'Sport Editions' although its clear to see where the inspiration for them has come from!

The most obvious change to both the F900 R and F900 XR is the new styling, with both bikes taking their cues from the M1000 R super naked and M1000 XR high-performance touring machine. That means each bike gets a moody black paint job, with grey ‘Sport Edition’ decals on the fuel tank, and traditional red and blue M-Sport-inspired detailing.

Aside from the paint, both machines also gain a host of additional optional parts fitted as standard, with the F900 XR getting a tinted screen (the F900 R doesn't have a screen fitted) and both bikes also feature a seat cowl, with specific decoration and “Sport” lettering at the central fin, black wheel rims with blue, silver and red accent, and an engine guard with blue, silver and red edging.

Both the kits are purely aesthetic, meaning the technical specifications of each model remain the same. That means you are getting a 270-degree crank 895cc parallel twin-cylinder engine which produces 105bhp and 67lb ft of torque. You can further enhance the styling of the bikes with the edition of trick-looking exhaust systems, with the F900 R available with a Conic Carbon silencer, and the F900 XR with an SC-1 R Titanium item. Both bikes are also available in A2-restrictable form, making them possibly the most cost-effective M-Edition vehicles you can go out and buy.

Sadly though, they aren’t available in the UK and are only available through BMW Motorrad France. The F900 R Sport Edition is priced at €11,950 including tax and the F900 XR Sport Edition comes in at €14,350 including tax.
