Compared to the 2017 R nineT the fork is non-adjustable and has 5 mm more travel, rear travel is up 20 mm, the front wheel is 19", the seat is 47 mm higher, the fuel tank slightly smaller and it's made from Steel, there is just one clock and the swingarm is painted black like the 2017 R nineT.
The boxer engine design has the cylinders aligned with the road, low down, which helps to keep the centre of mass low for improved handling and the shaft drive is great for easy maintenance. The 19" front wheel takes a 120/70 tyre and the 17" rear a 170/60.
Accessories include traction control (ASC), heated grips, LED indicators, knobbly off-road tyres, wire spoked wheels, Chrome plated manifold, low seat, Aluminium bash plate, cylinder head covers and handguards. For £715 more the X version gets you LED indicators, heated grips, spoked wheels and a Chrome exhaust.
