The BMW R nineT is a standard motorcycle made by BMW Motorrad since 2014. It is a retro styled roadster marketed by BMW to custom builders and enthusiasts as a “blank canvas for customizing”.
All models have anti-lock braking systems (ABS). Automatic stability control (ASC) is available as an option.
The BMW R nineT has several design elements configured to allow the bike to be easily modified, such as separate engine and chassis wiring harnesses and minimal bolts attaching the rear subframe, tail lights, and headlight.
The R nineT version of the bike has upside-down (USD) telescopic forks rather than BMW’s usual Telelever front suspension. The other versions have conventional telescopic forks.
All variations have an air/oil-cooled oilhead flat twin (or boxer) 1,170 cc (71 cu in) engine, which has the inlet manifold at the rear of the cylinders and the exhaust at the front.
