BMW F 800 S wins stunt wars

Discussion in 'Bike Reviews, Questions and Suggestions' started by farawayman, Jun 7, 2006.

  1. April 4, 2006 BMW’s new twin cylinder 800 is getting rave reviews from around the motorcycle press for its responsiveness and lean and athletic nature but one of the most surprising tributes to the machine has been paid by former World motorcycle stunt champion Christian Pfeiffer. BMW Motorrad was happy to oblige when Pfeiffer requested an F 800 as his new "working tool" at the very start of the freestyle season. Pfeiffer debuted the new motorcycle with flying colours in February at the "Stunt Wars" in sunny Florida. "Stunt Wars" is the biggest freestyle motorcycle competition in the US and is regarded by pros as the unofficial world championship. Pfeiffer won hands down against the best stunt professionals in the world, with free-hand wheelie circles followed by a 230 degree turn - a feat never seen before. Pfeiffer was particularly enthusiastic about the F 800's engine characteristics: "The engine is really well connected to the throttle and the power is transmitted spontaneously and sensitively - much better than in my last motorcycle with chain drive. That is exactly what I have always wanted for my stunts - absolutely perfect. From the very beginning I felt good on this bike, the balance is great - I hardly had to do anything to it, almost everything stayed as standard."

  2. Ah, I was going to say "Wonder where Pfeiffer placed" but guess he swapped from Ducati to BMW
  3. Now I want one more than ever! :cry:
  4. I don't think it's the bike but the rider. Pfeiffer would probably still win on any other bike.

    Although I am waiting for it to arrive at the dealer for a test run. Southbank BMW is expecting delivery in September.
  5. it looks good minus the faring, but slap that front bikini back on and that is one UGLY MF of a bike :LOL:
