BMW R nineT began life in 2013 as a roadster with the appearance of a classic motorcycle but equipped with modern technology. As the concept liked, new versions began to appear, such as the R niteT Urban G / S (inspired by the R 80 GS from 1980), the R nineT Scrambler or the R nineT Pure.
Now the model has received a series of novelties for what will be its 2021 version that affects both the mechanics and the equipment. A novel aspect that will attract some attention is that it goes from 110 to 109 hp.
This is because the boxer engine has been re-tuned to comply with EU-5 regulations and has led to a new system within the cylinder heads that spins the mixture for better and cleaner combustion. And in addition to being now a more ecological engine it has the advantage that it pushes more than its predecessor between 4,000 and 6,000 pm and reaches its maximum power at 7,250 pm when before it did at 7,750.
The chassis part has also been revised with the incorporation of a new travel-dependent shock absorber (WAD) which according to the Bavarian brand offers more comfort and an easy adjustment of the spring preload by means of a manual wheel.
In terms of electronics, all models now feature ABS Pro in combination with Dynamic Braking Control (DBC), as well as Rain and Road riding modes. In addition, Dyna (for R nineT and R nineT Pure) and Dirt (for R nineT Scrambler and R nineT Urban G / S) modes, Dynamic Traction Control (DTC) Drag Torque Control are also available as an option. (MSR), a Comfort Package with cruise control and heated grips, the turn signal light, and a special rear silencer design.
There are more ways to customize the R nineT also from an aesthetic point of view: different wheels, milled parts packages, shorter tail, etc. All this, of course, increasing its basic price of 13,400 euros.
