The design of the R nine T

Choose your style.

The two special finishes Black storm metallic / Vintage and Blueplanet metallic / Aluminium are now also available. Here, your R nineT now receives the right aluminium seat hump and the front mudguard in your chosen colour next to the tank. Furthermore, the standard rear seat is also included in the scope of delivery and the bike is supplied with the standard passenger subframe and footrests, which can be detached. With the special paint black storm metallic / vintage, your R nineT gets a unique and individual used look thanks to the hand-brushed finish.

Black storm metallic

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

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.

Blueplanet metallic / Aluminium

The paint finish supports the machine's classically elegant underlying statement. The gold strips combine the tank with the seat hump in a visually unified way.

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.

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.
