Created to mark their 90th anniversary, BMW Motorrad is set to release the sexy BMW R nineT this month. From initial glance one might think this is a custom-built bike, but that is not the case. Make no mistake though, someone with some real know-how can customize this baby to the hilt.
Deeply rooted in BMW Boxer history, the R nineT is a masterfully designed bike powered by a air/oil-cooled 2-cyclinder 4-stroke flat twin engine. With its 12.0 : 1 compression ratio and up to 119 Nm at 6.000 rpm torque, it’s powerhouse on two wheels reaching speeds of over 200 kilometers an hour.
The speedometer and rev counter harken back to its historical lineage, while its minimalistic look, including an upside down fork at the front and BMW Motorrad Paralever in the rear, is undeniably futuristic.
