FAQs

When will bikes be available to purchase?

BMW Motorrad UK currently have a stock of F 900 R bikes available. Please see below on how to order.

Where & how do the riders purchase them?

Once the rider’s entry has been accepted and their registration fee has been paid and confirmed by MSV-R, the rider/team owner should then contact their preferred Retailer and place an order for a F 900 R. The Retailer will then contact BMW Motorrad UK who will register a F 900 R and allocate it to the Retailer for sale to the rider/team at the price noted below.

Before supply of the bike to the retailer it will need to be partially prepared by Fortis Racing, the price of which is included in the Race Kit costs. This conversion includes machining and fitting of front suspension, fitment of rear stand bobbins, toe guard, rear set frames and the removal of the rear passenger grips from the rear sub frame.

The rider/team should then decide who will complete the race bike conversion, either themselves, the retailer, or Fortis Racing at additional cost.

It also possible for riders/teams to purchase a used F 900 R from their preferred retailer should they wish. It will be the rider/team’s responsibility to ensure that these bikes meet the F 900 R Cup Technical Regulations. This will involve arranging for the bike to be partially or fully prepared at Fortis Racing and will likely incur additional costs over and above the supply, and work included in, the cost of the Race Kit.
