September 11, 2009 - Our European sources tell us that BMW has confirmed a limited edition F800R Chris Pfeiffer stunt replica motorcycle will be available for sale.
At this point, it's not clear if the motorcycle will be sold in all markets. Since Pfeiffer is well known in Europe as the four-time World and European stunt champion, surely the bike will be marketed there, probably as a limited edition.
The F800R will be available in white or the red/white/blue BMW Motorsport colors shown here. The idea is to have the bike as close to the "real thing" as possible, including a kit with the sponsor stickers that will be available for owners.
The authenticity includes the painted wheels; white for the front and black for the rear, just like Pfeiffer's bike shown in the photo above.
The F800R stunt replica also includes an Akrapovic exhaust, heated grips (to keep those hands warm for good grip while doing all those stoppies!), the BMW road computer, a cover for the passenger section of the seat and LED turn signal lights.
The bike will be road legal but the price has not yet been announced.
Here's more on Chris Pfeiffer in our report on the 2008 World Stunt Bike Championships and our detailed report on the BMW F 800 R, including more photos, specifications and all the details.
