R nineT Pure: purist roadster for dynamic, classic riding pleasure on country roads.

The R nineT Pure embodies the essence of the purist, classic roadster – authentically designed, without frills and reduced to the absolute essentials. The design draws on a blend of both classic and modern stylistic elements of motorcycle construction combined with high-end details such as footrests and fork bridges in forged aluminium.

The fuel tank and front mudguard of the BMW R nineT Pure are finished in the colour Catalano Grey non-metallic. In combination with black for the suspension and drivetrain, this colour emphasises the purist character of the R nineT Pure as a roadster for dynamic, classic riding pleasure on country roads.

 

R nineT Racer: classic 1970s sports motorcycle feeling.

The R nineT Racer deliberately arouses memories of the sports motorcycles popular in the early 1970s. Crouched, compact and elongated, it conveys a sense of old-school sporty aspiration with its strikingly short half-fairing, hump seat, stub handlebars and set-back footrests, combining this overall impression with modern technology.

In Lightwhite non-metallic combined with decor that is reminiscent of past BMW Motorsport colours, the R nineT Racer is particularly light and athletic in appearance. The frame finished in Aluminium Silver prominently presents an architectural contrast with the black drivetrain, underscoring the standing of the R nineT Racer as an old-school sports motorcycle designed for dynamic riding fun on winding roads.

 

The highlights of the BMW R nineT Racer and R nineT Pure:

  • Potent boxer engine with a capacity of 1 170 cc and an output of 81 kW (110 hp) that meets EU4 requirements.
  • Modular frame with scope for customising, allowing individualisation according to personal taste.
  • Five-spoke light alloy cast wheels, 3.5 x 17″ at front and 5.5 x 17″ at rear (optional wire-spoked wheels).
  • 320-millimetre twin disc brake at the front. ABS as standard.
  • ASC (Automatic Stability Control) as an ex works option.
  • 2-in-1 exhaust system made of stainless steel (polished in the Racer, brushed in the Pure).
  • High-end details such as fork bridges and footrests in forged aluminium.
  • R nineT Pure in Catalano Grey non-metallic as a classic, purist roadster.
  • R nineT Racer with half-fairing, hump seat and set-back footrests in the style of a 1970s sports motorcycle.
  • R nineT Racer in Lightwhite non-metallic combined with multi-coloured decor reminiscent of past BMW Motorsport colours, with the frame in Aluminium Silver
