BMW R nineT For Sale
What Is It?
The BMW R nineT is a premium retro style bike and is powered by an air-cooled 1,170cc Boxer engine which develops 110bhp at 7,750rpm and maximum torque at 6,000rpm. It's basically the same as the 2006-2014 R1200R, there's a balance shaft to keep the vibrations down and Magnesium cylinder head covers.

For a bobber look the rear seat and sub-frame are easily removable or you can opt for the hand brushed Aluminium seat hump which includes a small splash-proof storage compartment. The dash is similar in functionality to the R1200R but looks much nicer with a digital centre flanked by two analogue dials for speed and revs.
BMW designed it with customisation in mind and upgrades / parts are constantly expanding due to the popularity of the model. The 17" wire spoked wheels take a 120/70 tyre up front and a 180/55 at the rear, but it's possible to fit a fat 200 at the rear as well.
Accessories include the high / low Akrapovic exhaust, heated grips, custom low 775mm seat, performance parts and a range of Carbon bits.
Colours: Black, red, blue, silver (sport)
The £12,990 R nineT Sport adds heated grips, seat hump, high rise Akrapovic exhaust and smoothed seams on the Aluminium fuel tank.Did You Know?
