BMW F 800 R Chris Pfeiffer Edition
The F 800 R’s easy handling was demonstrated by the four-times World and European Stunt-Riding Champion Chris Pfeiffer. During 2008, Chris Pfeiffer took part in stunt shows and contests on 85 days, and this year’s schedule is just as busy.
“No matter whether it’s about me as an individual, as a freestyle rider or as a racing rider: it’s always a question of being creative and showing the audience new, exciting things,” the rider says. “It is simply amazing when the crowd starts to cheer even before you’ve started. I really appreciate the great support provided by BMW, and for me the F 800 R is simply the perfect stunt motorcycle – as demonstrated by my recent success.”
The BMW F 800 R Chris Pfeiffer special edition closely resembles his competition bike, aside from the elaborate paintwork, the special edition Akrapovic muffler and a few other sporty features. But as we said, the basic technical characteristics remain intact from the standard model.
“I am very pleased and proud that there will be a BMW Motorcycle on sale which bears my name. I regard this as both a great honour and powerful source of motivation. Riding the first machine to bear my signature off the production line really was a unique experience,” Chris Pfeiffer said after he rode on the first BMW F 800 R that bears his name.
