The design of the R nine T

Choose your style

In addition to the Black storm metallic paint finish, there are now three paint finishes from the individualisation offer of BMW Motorrad.

    Sleek and classical: the R nineT shows off in a puristic and irresistible way with its colour scheme too.

    Opt. 719 Black storm metallic / Vintage

    The unified yellow application with the starting number "21" is just as hand-brushed as the padded sides: vintage in absolute consistency.

    Option 719 Pollux metallic / aluminum creates a successful interplay of light and dark on your tank.

    Opt. 719 Mars red metallic matt / Cosmic blue metallic matt

    Unmistakeably the R nineT

    The R nineT has a reduced style and nevertheless a completely unmistakeable presence. It embodies the passion and innovation of over 90 years of motorcycle construction – naturally together with the classic BMW Motorrad proportions: striking boxer engine, compact tank, slim rear. All materials are of consistently high quality; the surfaces are carefully refined. Added to this is an immense attention to detail and real craftsmanship. The front-wheel cover for instance is screwed to the fork feed using two forged brackets. And the headlamp holder itself is made out of aluminium.

    Born to be customised

    Born to be customised

    The focus when developing the R nineT was its modular concept right from the outset: for the highest degree of customizing possibilities. Countless professional and private modifications prove how much potential the R nineT has. Open interfaces in the electronics facilitate and alleviate the installation of electric components. Added to this is the well thought out separable frame. The end piece of the rear frame can be easily disassembled: for a puristic and stylish solo look, or for alternative seating options.

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.

    Relaxed seating, stress-free riding

    Relaxed seating, stress-free riding

    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.
