BMW F800S For Sale

BMW F800S For Sale

BMW F800S motorbike for sale near Eastbourne, United Kingdom.

After almost three years of ownership, I'm putting my gorgeous bike up for sale. I was hoping to not be one of those new dads that gives up his bike in preparation for the arrival of a baby - but sadly this is not to be.

Price: £3,990.00 
Specs: Read on...

I love this bike. It was purchased to explore Europe, and to also commute from Brighton to Eastbourne for work.

However, the imminent arrival of a new baby has meant moving to Eastbourne and therefore the bike is now underused and must find a new home.

  • Purchased from new: May 2008
  • One owner (me)
  • 12,500 miles (approx - will confirm if needed)
  • Full BMW Service History
  • It's less than three years old, so doesn't need an MOT yet. Before I sell it, I'll make sure its got the full 12 months of MOT as well a service
  • Excellent condition, has never been dropped, etc
  • About as high-spec as I could get - all I'd recommend to be essentials:
    • Heated Grips (why would anyone ride a bike without these???)
    • ABS Front and Rear Brakes
    • Onboard Computer - Fuel consumption, trip computer, etc
    • Tyre Pressure Sensors
    • Alarm inc Remote Control
    • BMW Panniers & Top Box fitted by BMW - The full luggage kit (locks matched to ignition key)
    • Better tyres than the stock ones - makes all the difference in corners
  • Will also include some accessories:
    • Buffalo Tank Bag
    • Spare Tyre with hardly used tread (puncture needs volcanising)
    • Cover

If you've researched this bike, you'll probably know about the low-maintanence belt drive which only needs replacing every 24,000 miles / 4 years. I've already had this changed at approx 10,000 miles which will save you about £250.

This bike has been very reliable and has always started well. Had a faulty top-box in first few months which has been replaced. The new one has stayed put for 10,000 miles now. The tyre pressure sensors are totally awesome - never been stranded by the roadside with a puncture like with my old Honda!
