Flight Sidecar fit for BMW F800GS

FLIGHT-BMW800-SIDE_edited-3Watsonian’s new Flight sidecar is now available to fit the BMW F800GS adventure sport bike.

Designed to suit contemporary motorcycles, the Flight offers plenty of touring potential for adventure seekers.

There is plenty of room for the passenger inside the cockpit, which measures 590mm wide with 1350mm of legroom, and the wrap-around acrylic screen shields them from the elements. The fully upholstered seat tilts forward to reveal a large locker (430mm x 670mm x 450mm), providing 129 litres of luggage capacity.

The sturdy glass fibre body shell is mounted on a specially-developed platform chassis, with a 15” cast alloy wheel and independent hydraulic suspension, for a smooth and stable ride with plenty of grip.

Indicators, tail and stop light are all LEDs, housed in a discreet mounting on the mudguard bracket.

The BMW F800GS has a tubular steel space frame with load-bearing engine, which makes fitting a sidecar difficult, because there are no mounting points for the lower attachment arms. The experienced engineers at Watsonian designed a braced subframe that bolts onto existing mounting points on the adventure sport bike, so the sidecar can be securely attached with the optimum geometry for strength and handling.

Take Flight in a Watsonian Sidecar

Watsonian Flight

Designed to suit contemporary motorcycles, the Flight is a single seat sports sidecar, with clean modern lines, 15” alloy wheel and advanced suspension.

Measuring 2000 mm long by 980 mm wide, its body shell is moulded from glass fibre, with a durable and low-maintenance polished gelcoat finish.

There is plenty of room for the passenger, who sits on a fully upholstered seat, shielded by a wide acrylic screen, in the 590 mm wide cockpit. There is a generous 1350 mm of legroom and the seat tilts forward to reveal a large locker for luggage.

Watsonian developed a totally new platform chassis for the Flight, fabricated from fully welded steel that is powder coated for a long-lasting finish, riding on a lightweight 15” cast wheel. An innovative suspension system provides a smooth and stable ride. It consists of a hydraulic shock absorber, mounted on a transverse swinging arm and braced by a torsion bar, with rose joint linkage, to control movement.

The indicators, front marker and tail light are all maintenance-free LEDs, housed in a discreet slim metal tube, attached to the low-profile mudguard.
