BMW has been making quality motorcycles for 90 years now. The brand originally hit the 2 wheeled scene back in 1923 with their BMR R 32. Now nearly a century later, the brand is celebrating 9 decades of motorrad with the 2014 BMW R nineT.
Just days after debuting their R 1200GS Adventure bike, the German auto maker has now given riders something built specifically for the open road. Seeing that the original BMW R 32 was equipped with a boxer engine, it’s only fitting that this bad boy be outfitted with one as well. The air-oil-cooled boxer twin engine is quite powerful, pumping out 110 horsepower along with 88 ft-lbs of torque, but it’s not the power that makes this thing special. BMW specifically designed the bike to serve as a solid base for riders that want to customize. As where some bikes make customization a hassle, the R nineT has done the opposite, because BMW wants riders to be able to customize the bike to their liking. The bike features an aluminum 4.8 gallon fuel tank, modular frame concept, dual mufflers with silencers, and a convertible seat that’s perfect for 1 or 2 riders. No information has been revealed in regards to pricing, but we imagine BMW will release information soon enough.
