BMW R nineT For Sale

The 2014 BMW R nineT is a premium retro motorbike and is powered by a flat two cylinder Boxer engine which produces 110bhp. It has massive potential for customisation and saw a minor update in 2017.

BMW R nineT

What Is It?

  • Quality build, comfy riding position, looks great, easy to customise
  • On the expensive side, suspension, dash readability

The R nineT was developed by BMW to celebrate their 90th Motorrad anniversary. It's powered by an air cooled 1,170cc two cylinder Boxer engine which develops 110bhp at 7,750rpm and maximum torque at 6,000rpm (basically the same as the 2006-2014 R1200R). There is also a balance shaft to keep the vibrations down and magnesium cylinder head covers. 

Features include:

  • Dual 320mm discs with black Brembo monobloc 2 piston radial calipers up front
  • Rear 265mm disc with black 2 piston caliper
  • Sachs 46mm upside down fork with 120mm travel (like the S1000RR without adjustment potential)
  • Pre-load adjustable rear Paralever suspension with 120mm travel
  • Daytime running light and on-board computer
  • White indicators and LED rear light
  • Shaft final drive and 6 speed gearbox
  • Stainless Steel exhaust system
  • Side stand with cut out switch
  • Adjustable clutch and brake levers
  • Power socket and ABS

The rear seat and pillion footrest frame are easily removable for solo riding with a cool bobber look around the rear wheel or you can opt for the pillion seat hump; the hand brushed Aluminium hump is actually quite nice because it lends itself to the cafe racer look and offers a (very) small splash-proof storage compartment inside.

Both wire spoked wheels are 17" with 120/70 ZR17 tyres up front and 180/55 ZR17 at the rear. It's even possible to fit a fatter 200mm rear wheel if it compliments the look. Elsewhere the console is similar in functionality to the R1200R but looks much nicer with a digital centre flanked by two analogue dials for speed and revs.

The R nineT Sport version adds heated grips, seat hump, high rise Akrapovic exhaust and smoothed seams on the Aluminium fuel tank but bumps the price up to £12,990. 

Of course the R nineT was designed with customisation in mind so you'll want to know as much about the options and custom parts as the bike itself, which are constantly expanding due to the popularity of the model.

The optional Akrapovic exhaust can be mounted in place of the standard split exhaust or up high following the seat, depending which look you are going for (see the pics). Heated grips are £240 and the alarm/remote locking is £210 while there are the usual range of performance carbon parts and covers available. A custom rider seat is also available, which can be seen in the pics above. It lowers the seat height a little to 775mm but more importantly looks cooler with nineT stitched in gold.

Available colours: black, red or blue (standard), silver (sport)

In 2016 BMW released the slightly cheaper R nineT Scrambler.
