BMW’s F800R roadster has undergone a makeover for 2015.

The German manufacturer has rung the changes on the bike, introducing an almost brand new front-end, after ditching its love-it-or-hate-it headlight of old.

Now, there’s a symmetrical front light, as opposed to the lopsided look of the old F800R.

And that revamped front-end is completed by newly designed fairings and a new front mudguard.

The F800R’s overhaul has not focused solely on the aesthetic and there have also been changes and tweaks to the powertrain and equipment.

Power has been upped on the roadster to 90hp however there’s also a 47hp version for riders who hold an A2 licence.

Suspension and brakes have also been updated with inverted forks used at the front and radial mount calipers fitted for the first time on the front.

As standard, the F800R comes with ABS while Automatic Stability Control (ASC) and Electronic Suspension Adjustment (ESA) are optional extras.

The BMW F800R was unveiled at the EICMA international motorbike show in Milan yesterday alongside the S1000 XR.
