To ride a motorbike is to search for freedom. The R nineT is your companion on this journey. The here and now is the only thing that counts. The sky above and the road beneath you. And in the middle it’s only you and the nine. An inseparable entity, pure symbiosis.
Clear and reduced: the nineT is deeply rooted in BMW boxer history. Meticulously equipped with high-quality parts and a uniquely cool visual appeal.
The BMW nineT stands for one thing above all else:
Reduce to the max: The R nineT personifies the PURE RIDING philosophy down to the last detail. State-of-the-art BMW motorcycle technology combined with classic, high-quality details make for a flat twin bike which leaves a lasting impression.
In keeping with the simple theme, BMW powers the 2014 R nineT with the air- and oil-cooled version of the company’s 1170cc boxer engine, not the liquid-cooled twin found in the new R1200GS. Moreover, the R nineT’s engine, with a claimed 110 horsepower and 88 pound-feet of torque, serves as a stressed member in a new tubular steel chassis, which is a modular design with front and rear sections, plus an end piece and a pillion frame, all bolted together. The exhaust, which runs down the left side of the R nineT, can be mounted in a lowered or raised position, depending on the length of the connector accessory pipe ordered. A titanium Akrapovic exhaust is also available as an accessory.
