BMW F 900 XR 2020

The new BMW F 900 XR proves that it now needs no more than the middle class. With 105 hp, you are never underpowered in any situation and the two-cylinder offers enough elasticity to be both relaxed and very sporty on the road. Its solid quality and proven high-volume technology of the F 850 series make it a perfect companion if you want to be sporty on the road with a high level of comfort. As a basis, the equipment is sufficient, but the BMW accessories programme gives enough options to put together your dream motorbike (recommendation: Gearshift Assistant Pro!).

Yamaha impressively proves how wonderfully emotional a practical motorbike can be. Again and again you laugh mischievously into your helmet when you let the husky three-cylinder off the leash. An all-round successful motorbike that can replace half a motorbike garage. Unfortunately, the attempt with the unconventional display was a failure. It is impractical and difficult to read.
