Motorcycling has always been a passionate lifestyle. For the past 90 years BMW Motorrad has been ensuring that this remains the same in the future, too. For those who like it pure and original, BMW Motorrad has now developed the perfect machine: the BMW R nineT. A motorcycle featuring purist design and numerous ways of customizing it.
2016 BMW R nine T
Riding a motorcycle and feeling free. The BMW R nineT combines this feeling with a casually cool look which, in spite of all the details, is unmistakably a member of the BMW family. Further criteria such as ride feel, design and sound lay the foundation for an independent, authentic lifestyle.
The BMW R nineT is powered by an air/oil-cooled 2-cylinder 4-stroke flat twin engine. The instruments consisting of speedometer and tachometer harken back to historical times and emphasize the essential and minimalist visual appeal of the motorcycle. The BMW R nineT is equipped with an upside down fork at the front and with the BMW Motorrad Paralever at the rear. However, the nineT does not only stand out due to its pure design. The nineT offers great options for individualization. No customizing wish is left unfilled. For example there is the removable rear frame, enough space for 6 inch rims and many other options. Even though the BMW R nineT offers so many modification opportunities it remains a real BMW motorcycle from a technical point of view. Standard-fitted ABS ensures highest-degree safety for the nineT, too.
Pure passion, pure design, pure riding pleasure. This is what makes the BMW R nineT so essential for the classic enthusiast. Modify, ride, have fun. The nineT leaves nothing to be desired with regard to customization. Design your motorcycle, design your life. One name, one purist lifestyle: BMW R nineT.

Tough, unconventional, and against established standards. Made for true characters who want their bike to be pure and minimalistic.
The unique sound of the R nineT Scrambler is a real attention grabber. The classic 1200 cc boxer engine and its high-positioned dual silencer give the bike a powerful voice.

Dual sport tires, a high exhaust system, and a relaxed, upright riding position help the Scrambler keep riding where the pavement ends. The 19-inch front wheel, the analog tachometer, a purist steel tank in monolith metallic matte and other unique details turn the Scrambler into a high-quality classic. And with just a few steps you can give the R nineT Scrambler your own individual touch. Pure Scrambler. Pure BMW Motorrad. The R nineT Scrambler is at the highest level in matters of safety, reliability and quality. Standard ABS and optional ASC provide extra safety. Make your statement with the R nineT Scrambler.
2017 BMW R nineT Racer
Unwavering. Dynamic. Air-cooled. The R nineT Racer lets you relive the era of legendary superbikes. Far removed from obsessive retro romanticism, but rather on a customizable bike with innovative technology and in customary BMW Motorrad quality. Crouched behind the striking half fairing, both hands tight on the low-slung handlebar grips, you can feel the powerful boxer work, you hear its unmistakable roar. And you already know: only a strong character can hold the racing line. On the road, as in life.
The design of the R nineT Racer unmistakably takes inspiration from the 70s motorsports. The elongated proportions extend through the entire design and promise pure acceleration. The distinctive half-shell fairing, the tank and the seat shape the slim silhouette. The long wheelbase and the low-slung handlebars positioned far to the front complete the low, sporty seating position. Then the high-set, far back footrests: as a rider, you lean into an aggressive riding position. Surrounded by the white bodywork, which clearly stands out against the dark driving parts and technology. Even the BMW Motorsports colors seem to constantly call for the next corner.
The R nineT Racer's technology is just as confident and strong as its design: the drive and the vehicle electrical system have thrilled since the BMW R nineT. Being state-of-the-art, the R nineT Racer also meets the EU-4 standard. The powerful air-cooled, two-cylinder boxer engine features a capacity of 1170 cc and 110 hp (81kW) of output for a highly dynamic power delivery, even at low speeds. Simply a boxer. Thanks to the half fairing and the low seating position, you can even enjoy wind protection whatever pace you are riding. The standard ABS and optional ASC add confidence while riding.
Sporty and dynamic: the R nineT Racer's handlebars are positioned low on the upper fork bridge. The moderate offset protects the wrists. The footrests, on the other hand, have made their way backwards and upwards to support the sporty seating position. In addition, the optional custom rider's seat lowers the seat height from 31.7” to 32.3. The cushion on the rider's seat is slightly raised at the rear. This provides perceptible relief for the back on long rides.
The R nineT Racer takes inspiration from the motorsports of days gone by. That's why, as standard, it only has room for you – completely solo and pure. It is focused – and it shows. The retrofittable rear frame quickly adds the ability to carry a passenger. The custom range of optional equipment available from the factory contains, among other things: two aluminum tanks, spoked wheels or even lowered suspension. You can add original BMW Motorrad accessories such as HP carbon parts or an HP sports silencer. The R nineT Racer is also optimally prepared for specially manufactured mounted parts, such as the new Machined parts. Because it loves tinkering hands just as much as the confident rev on the gas.
2017 BMW R Nine T Urban GS
Eye-catching. Powerful. Air-cooled. Enjoy the confident feel of a boxer with an upright and relaxed riding position, coupled with modern technology. Choose from countless customizing options for your own unique ideas. The R nineT Urban G/S makes a clear statement: It pays tribute to the early days of BMW Motorrad's G/S success story. Just one look and it's clear that the R nineT Urban G/S captures the off-road spirit of that era. At the same time, its riding characteristics make it a true member of today's R nineT family. It reflects the way of life of that time: People knew where they wanted to go, and they knew exactly how they would get there.
The design of the R nineT Urban G/S is eye-catching. Distinctive stylistic elements make it a powerful, robust bike that pays tribute to the original G/S design: the 19-inch front wheel, the telescopic fork with the familiar bellows, the headlamp mask with the windscreen and the raised front-wheel cover define the front of the bike. The profile is defined by a pronounced horizontal line. White body elements and the narrow, slightly longer red seat revive the spirit of the legendary R 80 G/S from 1980. The black engine and frame highlight this effect. The new classic round instruments also show that the Urban G/S is part of the R nineT family. The R nineT Urban G/S also excels on everything from unpaved paths to gravel roads. The optional knubby tires and spoked wheels, the Enduro foot pegs, the bolted-on heat shield and the steel footbrake lever emphasize the effect, both functionally and visually.
The R nineT Urban G/S is faithful to tradition with its looks, but the bike shows equal respect for the present with its modern technology. It features the proven engine and electrical system of the BMW R nineT. The Urban G/S also meets the current EU-4 emission standard. The powerful air-cooled, two-cylinder boxer engine features a capacity of 1170 ccm+ and 110 hp (81 kW) of output for a highly dynamic power delivery, even at low speeds. All for a light and modern riding experience. The standard ABS and optional ASC Automatic Stability Control help confidence in a range of riding conditions. And there's one last visual reference to the enduro roots of the G/S: the raised exhaust system made of brushed stainless steel.
The balanced ergonomic triangle of the Urban G/S keeps you agile and confident on the road: The slightly higher handlebar, the long seat surface and slightly deeper and wider rear mounted footrests make for a more relaxed and confident riding experience. The standard seat height of the series is 33.5”. Thanks to an optional lower seat, the R nineT Urban G/S offers stability for riders of almost all sizes.
When it comes to customizing, the possibilities are almost endless, as showcased so well in countless adventures throughout G/S history. The R nineT Urban G/S can be quickly converted into a one-seater thanks to the removable pillion frame. There's also a tailored range of Original BMW Motorrad accessories to choose from. Options include a crash bar, engine guard or protective headlamp grille. The bike also comes with several optional accessories, including spoked wheels, various tanks, ASC (Automatic Stability Control), heated grips or LED turn indicators. But the R nineT Urban G/S is also ideal for installing specially fabricated add-on components such as our new Machined parts. In short: Your individuality is just as unrestricted as your riding pleasure.
2016 BMW R NINE T PURE
A roadster, reduced to the essentials: maximum performance. 160 bhp, 83 lb/ft torque and a power-to-weight ratio of 2.85 pounds per bhp - and the competition disappears in the rear mirror.
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. It is reminiscent of the 1970's and 80's era. But its roots go deeper. Even the very first motorcycle from BMW was simple, reduced and dynamic. Back then, in 1923, the BMW opposed-twin engine was already the heart of the entire concept. At the same time, the new R nineT Pure offers you many options to customize your motorcycle. You can realize your dreams: for your bike and your lifestyle. You will feel its origin, whether you're customizing it, or enjoying the thrill of opening the throttle.
The design of the R nineT Pure is reminiscent of a typical roadster. The circular headlamp with a chrome ring, 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 telefork. The supporting element: the 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 has nothing 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.
The engine and the electrical system of the R nineT Pure already excited motorcycle fans in the R nineT. The air/oil cooled two cylinder opposed-twin engine with its 110 hp (81 kW) promises a lush, vital riding experience and keeps its promise – typical of a twin engine. The 2-in-1 exhaust system with a typical roadster-look emphasizes this style consciousness with a full, powerful sound. Thanks to standard ABS and optional ASC you can take this power safely to the streets.
The R nineT Pure allows you to realize your dream of a custom motorcycle. Completely according to your ideas. Create your bike – in your style. Thanks to the comparatively low seat height, the motorcycle is suitable for many different body sizes. Additionally, you can lower your R nineT Pure further with the low-slung factory option. Deep, narrow and firmly padded, you'll ride in the best roadster manner – self-confident, unequivocal, and unmistakable.
You are what you ride. The R nineT Pure is a mirror of your personal taste and your creativity. The pillion frame on the machine’s rear can be removed, for example, just as with the R nineT. In case you want to draw all attention completely to you. Original BMW Motorrad accessories and BMW Motorrad optional accessories allow you to further customize your bike. You can replace the steel tank with an aluminum one, with or without a visible milled welding seam. Or you can choose top-quality spoked wheels instead of cast alloy wheels - for a classic and stylish silhouette. And also with specially made add-on parts, such as the new Machined parts, the R nineT Pure gives you free choice.
