BMW reveals 2023 F900 XR adventure bike

Written by Rohit Tonapi

BMW Motorrad is updating most of its lineup for 2023. We recently saw the new colours and graphics for the BMW G 310 GS and G 310 R. These are the brand’s entry-level offerings. Along with that, BMW has also updated the F 900 XR with new colours. However, apart from the new colour, there have been no mechanical changes.

BMW already offers the F 900 XR and the F 900 R in the Indian market. And since they come in as imports, it is likely BMW will bring the new colour options to the Indian market soon. However, the brand has not confirmed an Indian launch yet.

2023 BMW F 900 XR – New Colour Options

For 2023, the F 900 XR will be available with a new Racing Blue Metallic colour option. The colour option also includes a body-coloured engine sump guard as standard. Apart from the new colour option, the F 900 XR is available in two more colours – Black Storm Metallic 2 and Granite Grey Metallic Matt. The Black Storm Metallic 2 is also known as the Triple Black model and features a complete blacked-out look. On the other hand, the Granite Grey Metallic Matt is also known as the Light White. This colour option features red XR decals on the front shrouds and, unlike the other colour options, gets silver colour rims.
