BMW:The new BMW R nineT models.
Extended range of standard features, fine-tuning of the design and
even more pulling power. The new BMW R nineT models – R nineT, R nineT
Pure, R nineT Scrambler and R nineT Urban G/S.
When BMW Motorrad presented the R nineT in 2013, it was more than
just a roadster modelled on a classic archetype: from the very outset
it combined classic motorcycle design and modern technology with
excellent craftsmanship and a wide range of customisation options.
Just a short time later, the R nineT found attractive derivatives in
the BMW Motorrad Heritage world of experience: the R nineT Urban G/S
as an enduro with the genes of the legendary R 80 G/S of 1980, the R
nineT Scrambler as a homage to this distinctive motorcycle genre for
those who love a purist, reduced and non-conformist style, and the R
nineT Pure as a roadster reduced to the bare essentials. For the
upcoming 2021 season, BMW Motorrad has now sustainably honed the R
nineT family with some technical modifications, as well as
significantly extending the range of standard and optional equipment.
Boxer engine according to EU-5 requirements with new cylinder heads,
even greater torque and optimised design.
For use in the new R nineT models, the boxer engine has undergone
both technical and visual fine-tuning and is now designed to meet the
requirements of the EU-5 pollutant class. Its peak power output is now
80 kW (109 hp) at 7250 rpm (previously 81 kW (110 hp) at 7750 rpm),
while the maximum torque is still 116 Nm at 6000 rpm. Newly designed
cylinder heads provide a more harmonious transition from the outer to
the inner cooling fins, and newly designed throttle valve parts and
cylinder head covers now give the bike even greater aesthetic appeal.
Inside the cylinder heads there is a new turbulence system which
swirls the mixture to ensure even better and cleaner combustion and
increased torque. Thanks to an even more full-bodied power and torque
curve – especially in the range between 4000 and 6000 rpm – pulling
power levels are now tangibly better than those of the predecessor.
ABS Pro including DBC (Dynamic Brake Control) and a new suspension
strut with travel-dependent damping (WAD) now come as standard, as do
the “Rain” and “Road” riding modes.
Even in the standard version, the new R nineT models now feature ABS
Pro in combination with DBC (Dynamic Brake Control) for increased
safety when braking – at banking angles as well as in difficult
situations. Standard features also include a new shock absorber with
travel-dependent damping (WAD), providing enhanced suspension comfort
and convenient adjustment of the spring preload via a hand wheel.
“Rain” and “Road” riding modes are now included as standard, too.
Classic circular instrument with new dial, LED lighting units and
USB charging socket as standard.
The standard trim in the R nineT models includes a circular
instrument with a newly designed dial featuring the BMW logo as well
as indicator lights that are “invisible” when not illuminated.
Likewise as standard, the new R nineT models now have a headlamp and
white indicator lights in LED technology. The extended range of
standard equipment in the new R nineT models is supplemented with a
USB charging socket.
A wealth of new options – from innovative technology to individual
design and new colour schemes.
BMW Motorrad has significantly advanced the new R nineT models – both
technically and visually. Riding Modes Pro with the additional modes
“Dyna” for the R nineT and R nineT Pure and “Dirt” for the R nineT
Scrambler and R nineT Urban G/S are now available as new individual
options, as are DTC (Dynamic Traction Control) and engine drag torque
control (MSR). Another new option is the Comfort Package, comprising
Riding Modes Pro, cruise control and heated handlebar grips. The
turning light and the rear silencer design option are likewise new to
the range of individual optional extras.
Meanwhile the traditional “Option 719” offers particularly exclusive
and high-quality options for customisation of the R nineT to suit the
owner’s personal taste. This exclusive range of parts now includes
such items as various wheels, milled parts packages and – from the
Original BMW Motorrad Accessories range – a rear conversion with short
rear end and number plate holder behind the rear wheel, as well as a
rear end in tracker style (Tracker rear end). The enhancements for the
R nineT model family are rounded off with new standard and optional
paint finishes. The “Edition 40 Years GS” of the R nineT Urban G/S is
especially significant here. Available as a limited edition only, this
unique model comes in a colour scheme reminiscent of the legendary R
100 GS to mark the 40th anniversary of the BMW Motorrad GS family.
