Additional features include keyless ignition, cornering ABS, semi-active suspension and more.

Talking of the capacity, the F 900 R gets a 13-litre fuel tank while the one on the F 900 XR is a bit larger at 15.5-litre. BMW F 900 R challenges the likes of the Triumph Street Triple, KTM 790 Duke and the Kawasaki Z900 in the segment.
