Motorcycling as a sign of pure freedom: landscape, corners and straights. Every metre counts. This is precisely your path. The R nineT is the perfect companion and knows hardly any limits when it comes to your personal fulfilment – also thanks to its countless customising possibilities. In doing so, the character of its air-cooled boxer engine irresistibly propels you forward in a way that can be clearly felt with its full torque curve – together with state-of-the-art technology. Right from the start, the R nineT has enthralled motorcycling enthusiasts around the world. It stimulates, inspires and infects.
The R nineT has a reduced style but nevertheless a completely unmistakeable presence. It embodies the passion and innovation of over 90 years of motorcycle construction. All materials are of consistently high quality and the surfaces are carefully refined. Added to this is an immense attention to detail and real craftsmanship. The fender for instance is screwed to the fork feet using two forged brackets. And the headlamp holder is made out of aluminium.
Its powerful air-cooled, two-cylinder boxer engine features a capacity of 1170 ccm and 81 kW (110 hp) of output for a highly dynamic power delivery, even at low speeds. The result: every journey is a special experience. Both in the city or on the country road. At the same time, the R nineT also complies with the applicable EU-4 standard.
The standard BMW Motorrad ABS and optional ASC automatic stability control allow you to always safely bring the unmistakable dynamics onto the road. The upside-down fork can be adjusted manually for individual coordination: spring preload, pressure stage and compression stage suit you and your riding style. The newly designed double instrument with speedometer and rev counter informs you reliably about everything you need to know besides the riding enjoyment.
Even the ergonomics of the R nineT are aligned entirely in keeping with its casual overall look and its dynamic riding characteristics. It almost sounds like a paradox, but despite its engine performance, the target here is relaxed deceleration with the fullest pleasure. The balanced ergonomic triangle and the still somewhat flatter steering head angle allow you to discover new routes while sitting up and yet staying relaxed. Meaning ergonomics and outstanding riding characteristics literally go hand in hand with the R nineT.
