The new BMW R nineT range is available in new colour options and gets features like ABS Pro, DBC (Dynamic Brake Control), riding modes, etc. as standard. The bikes are powered by a Euro 5 compliant engine.


BMW Motorrad recently revealed R 18 Classic model. Alongside that, the German motorcycle maker has taken the wraps off new R nineT range as well. In their new avatar, the R nineT motorcycles have received a couple of design changes and more features as standard. Besides this, the bikes also have more pulling power than their predecessors. BMW had introduced R nineT neo-classic roadster for the first time in 2013 and then later on added Urban G/S enduro that borrowed elements from 1980's R 80 G/S. Later on, BMW Motorrad expanded the R nineT range with Scrambler and Pure variants.


In its new avatar, the R nineT range gets LED headlights with LED DRLs and LED indicators as standard. All the bikes are also available with new colour options and the R nineT Urban G/S bike also gets the limited-edition '40 Years GS' colour scheme to celebrate 40th anniversary of BMW Motorrad GS family. As standard, the R nineT range now gets ABS Pro with DBC (Dynamic Brake Control), new shock absorber with travel-dependent damping for improved handling, and two riding modes -- Rain and Road. Customers also get the opt for features like "Dyna" riding mode, dynamic traction control, and engine drag torque control system, albeit at a premium.


The new BMW R nineT range, just like the previous one, is powered by a 1,170 cc, air-cooled, twin-cylinder boxer engine but the powerplant now meets Euro 5 emission norms. It develops 107 bhp at 7,750 rpm and 116 Nm at 6,000 rpm. This new engine has been tuned to offer more torque in the 4,000 rpm - 6,000 rpm range as compared to the Euro 4 compliant engine. The updated boxer engine also gets new cylinder head design and newly designed throttle valve parts for improved performance.

The new BMW R nineT is expected to arrive in spring next year, with prices starting from £13,150.
