What Is It?

The BMW R nineT Racer is a cafe racer version of the retro R nineT Pure. It's powered by a Euro 4 compliant air-cooled 1,170 cc Boxer engine which develops 110 bhp at 7,750 rpm and maximum torque at 6,000 rpm.

Features include:

  • Steel tubular frame with shaft drive
  • Dual 320 mm discs with Brembo four piston calipers up front
  • Rear 265 mm disc with two piston caliper
  • ABS System
  • 43 mm standard fork with 125 mm travel
  • Pre-load adjustable rear Paralever suspension with 120 mm travel
  • White indicators and LED rear light
  • 6 speed gearbox with gear position indicator
  • Polished Stainless Steel 2->1 exhaust system
  • Adjustable levers
  • Power socket

Compared to the range topping R nineT the seat is 20 mm higher, the wheels are cast rather than wire spoked and the fork is a standard setup. The tank is also slightly smaller and made from Steel rather than brushed Aluminium.

It's basically the same bike as the naked R nineT Pure but with a cafe racer half fairing, Aluminium seat hump, clip-on handlebars, set back pegs to give the low down riding position and the second clock with rev counter. The 5-spoke 17" wheels take a 120/70 tyre at the front and 180/55 at the rear.

Accessories include traction control (ASC, £310), wire spoked wheels (£330), LED indicators (£100), heated grips (£240) and Chrome silencer (£90). For a pillion you can fit a full seat with the passenger subframe.
