The 2019 BMW F900XR was an adventure touring motorcycle, as BMW calls it, but essentially, it was referred to as a classic sport-touring bike. It combined the aggressiveness and sportiveness of the BMW F900R, being powered by a parallel-twin engine while keeping the comfort of the BMW F850GS.
It was fitted with a long travel suspension, optional dynamic ESA Pro, two damping modes, and automatic load compensation. The machine shared the frame and engine with the F900R and was a viable option for shorter riders because the seat was positioned lower than the S 1000 XR. It also weighs a bit less than its bigger brother, with a difference of seven kg (15 lbs).
The engine evolved from a 798cc to an 895cc from the previous generation, developing 103 hp at 8500 rpm and 92 Nm (68 lb-ft) torque at 6500 rpm. Compared to the previous engine, the larger one developed around 15 hp and seven Nm (5 lb-ft) torque more than the smaller one.
Also, the bike had two riding modes to choose from as standard, depending on various conditions such as road surface, weather conditions, and driver experience. These modes were Rain and Road, while Dynamic and Dynamic Pro came as an ex-works option. The Dynamic Pro mode granted access to fine-tune with precise throttle response, engine brake, ABS control, and traction control.
