Unmistakably Original.

The R nineT embodies the passion and history of over 90 years of dynamic motorcycle design. Featuring a distinct air-cooled boxer engine coupled with state-of-the-art technology, the R nineT is the essence of pure riding freedom.     

A Boxer Classic.

Its powerful air-cooled, two-cylinder boxer engine features a capacity of 1170 ccm and 81 kW (110 hp) of output for a highly dynamic power delivery, even at low speeds. The result: every journey is a special experience, both in the city or on the country road. At the same time, the R nineT also complies with the applicable EU-4 standard.
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 to suit you and your riding style. The newly designed double instrument with speedometer and rev counter informs you reliably about everything you need to know besides the riding enjoyment.
