    BMW F 800 S Goes Stuntbike With Christian Pfeiffer

    The former stunt world champion Christian Pfeiffer presents his breathtaking motorcycling tricks on the new BMW F 800 S this year. Even in test rides with prototypes last year, Chris Pfeiffer was instantly taken with the playful agility and perfect engine characteristics of the brand new BMW 2-cylinder. BMW Motorrad was happy to oblige when Pfeiffer requested an F 800 as his new "working tool" at the very start of the freestyle season and well before the start of delivery to customers. Christian Pfeiffer was provided with a pre-series model which he modified accordingly.

    The new motorcycle came through its baptism of fire in February at the "Stunt Wars" in sunny Florida with flying colours. "Stunt Wars" is the biggest freestyle motorcycle competition in the US and is regarded by pros as the unofficial world championship. 35-year-old Pfeiffer won hands down against the best stunt professionals in the world, with free-hand wheelie circles followed by a 230° turn for example _ a feat never seen before. The modified F 800 S was the only 2-cylinder machine in the field _ most of the competition used 4-cylinder bikes.

    Pfeiffer was particularly enthusiastic about the F 800's engine characteristics: "The engine is really well connected to the throttle and the power is transmitted spontaneously and sensitively _ much better than in my last motorcycle with chain drive. That is exactly what I have always wanted for my stunts _ absolutely perfect. From the very beginning I felt good on this bike, the balance is great _ I hardly had to do anything to it, almost everything stayed as standard."

    Christian Pfeiffer will perform all his stunt appearances in 2006 on the BMW F 800 S. In mid-February, spectators were captivated by his amazing first appearance of 2006 in Europe at the motorcycle trade fair in Zurich where he performed breathtaking tricks on the motorcycle.

    Further information is available on the homepage of BMW Motorrad at www.bmw-motorrad.de and on the homepage of Christian Pfeiffer at www.christianpfeiffer.com.

    Awesome post!!!
    Anything Pfeiffer rides is a stunt bike! I wish I could be gifted with 1/2 his talent.
    He turned stunting into an art! Ballet on two, mostly one wheel!

    I'm surprised more people don't stunt with them. It's not like you can make them look WORSE! :)

    There are few bikes out there that some of these guys can't stunt on. I have seen people drag the trunks on Gold Wings and even get a big boy Vulcan 1500 up on one wheel.

    If it even has a moderate power/weight ratio, some of the guys can stunt like mad on them.

    Also, what is that guys name (multi time world stunt champ, orginally from Brazil, now sponsored by Yamaha), anyways he has got to be one of my favorites.
