Back in 2013 BMW offered motorcycle fans around the world a minimalist option. Dubbed the R nineT, it was a model that embraced the pure essence of riding. It’s clear they were on to something too seeing how popular the model quickly became. Now, in response to said popular demand, BMW Motorrad is releasing two more R nineT variants to the family: the Racer and the Pure.
Both new models host the classic air/oil-cooled boxer engine, capable of a 1170cc displacement and an output of 110hp. They also feature the iconic stainless steel exhaust styling with a rear silencer that gives both bikes that timeless look we all know and love. For the R nineT Racer, BMW purposefully designed this bike to arouse memories of the famous sports motorcycles in the early ‘70s. It’s also athletic in appearance, adorning a light white non-metallic paint job alluding to past BMW Motorsport colors. As for the R nineT Pure, it embodies the spirit of a classic roadster, drawing on styles both past and present combined with fine details including foot rests, fork bridges and finished forged aluminum. It’s painted Catalano Grey to pair with the black suspension and drivetrain, adding a little something extra to the bike’s country road aesthetic. No word on pricing just yet.
