BMW has updated the R nineT range (R nineT, R nineT Pure, R nineT Scrambler and R nineT Urban G/S) to meet the Euro 5 regulations. As a result of this, the air/oil-cooled boxer engine gets new cylinder heads, cylinder head covers and throttle valve parts. In practice this increases torque in the mid-range but peak power drops marginally from 81kW (110hp) to 80kW (109hp).
Other changes include introduction of lean-sensitive ABS Pro with DBC (Dynamic Brake Control), new suspension strut with travel-dependent damping, riding modes “Rain” and “Road” as standard, with optional Pro Riding Modes available, LED headlights incl. daytime running light/parking light as standard, more paint finishes and accessories available than before.
Bikes are due in retailers Spring 2021, with prices starting from £10,960.
