THE BMW R nine T pure.

Pure. Reduced. Air-cooled.

The BMW R nineT Pure is perfect for everyone who loves the classic roadster design and is looking for a pure motorcycle experience. The design draws its inspiration directly from the first motorcycles. It is reminiscent of the era of the 1970's and 80's. But its roots go deeper. Even the very first motorcycle from BMW was simple, reduced and dynamic. Already in 1923 the heart of the entire concept was the BMW opposed-twin engine. At the same time, it offers you many options to customise your motorcycle. You can realize your dreams: of your bike and your lifestyle. You will feel where it comes from Whether you're customising it or enjoying the thrill of opening the throttle.

The design of the R nine T Pure

Reduced to the essentials

The design of the R nineT Pure is reminiscent of a typical roadster. The circular headlamp with chrome ring, a varnished housing and the new circular tachometer influence the look of the front. The proportions are determined by the three-part bridge frame together with the new classic looking telescopic fork. And as the supporting element, an opposed-twin engine, just waiting to roar. The steel tank and the typically narrow rear complete a silhouette that is both stylish and elegant: for an agile and self-confident appearance - and all carried by the striking 5 spoke cast wheels.
However, the maximally stripped down design does not have anything to do with faddish nostalgia. Rather the R nineT Pure allows you to customize the bike to the full: equip it, modify it, design it – your bike, your style. The basis for the bike: a proven concept and, of course, the customary BMW Motorrad quality.

  • Safety included – thanks to ABS and optional ASC.

    The R nineT Pure is open to your ideas. When it comes to safety, it quite clearly reflects our ideas: this is why it is fitted with the BMW Motorrad ABS as standard. And the optional ASC (automatic stability control) prevents the rear wheel from spinning and ensures more efficient power transmission: for more active riding safety in extreme situations. It is even available during the journey upon request.
  • Seat variants – just how you like it.

    The R NineT Pure offers the following three possibilities – however you want: there is a passenger seat with passenger frame fitted as standard. But you can also quickly dismantle the passenger seat, if you are riding solo. This gives rise to a bit more storage space beneath the small seat hump. Or you ride the R nineT Pure in a very sporty and stylistically puristic way: without passenger seat and without passenger frame.

More individuality

Just how you want it.

Depending on your desire and budget, simply put together your R nineT Pure piece by piece. With the new machined parts for instance, or of course with the Original BMW Motorrad accessories.

Custom Bikes at Glemseck 101

The dragstrip – a platform for fame.

Deluxe R nine T modified.

Customisers have been preparing for this day for months, tinkering in their workshops at night to be ready on time for Glemseck 101. They'll present the finest custom bikes at the Essenza Sprint. The two-wheeled works of art combine performance and design and encapsulate the very essence of a motorcycle. The rules are quite simple: two wheels, two cylinders, a maximum of 1200 cc. But the implementation is an art in itself.

A murmur goes through the crowd when the 16 custom bikes for the Essenza Sprint are presented to the audience at Glemseck 101. The multitude of visual treats could fill whole picture books. Skilled hands have freed roadsters, cruisers and naked bikes of their standard trim and transformed them into visionary one-offs. Because the creators of the sprint call for motorcycle manufacturers and importers to create the essence of a motorcycle – and to present it not just once at the sprint at Glemseck 101, but also a second time at the Intermot in Cologne.
