BMW Motorrad Malaysia today unveiled the new R nineT, R nineT Pure and R nineT Racer, priced at RM101,900, RM82,900 and RM88,900 respectively, without on-the-road expenses and inclusive of GST.
The new BMW Heritage models feature the 1,170cc air/oil-cooled boxer engine that generates 110hp and 116Nm peak torque, paired with a six-speed transmission.
Powered by the boxer engine, the power transmission from R nineT’s engine to the rear wheel of the classic roadster is further transmitted by means of a cardan shaft drive and a six-speed gearbox.
In terms of new highlights, it features a new dual speed indicator and rational-speed sensor instrument with on-board computer.
Additionally, BMW Motorrad has extended the design program of its Original BMW Motorrad Accessories to include the “Machined” range of customising parts for the model, created in collaboration with Roland Sands, well-known customiser based in California, USA.
The optional “Machined Parts” available include “Machined” cylinder head covers, “Machined” headlight rig, “Machined” engine cover, and “Machined” handle bars.
Featured as a standard, the fuel tank and front mudguard of the new R nineT Pure are finished in Catalano Grey, while its instrument cluster matches the classically reduced appearance of the bike, with a circular speedometer featuring an analogue display and integrated indicator lamps.
In addition to that, the new roadster is also fitted with an LCD display that shows important information such as the time and trip distance.
The R nineT Racer conveys a features a strikingly short, frame-mounted half-fairing on the steering head, and its front view is especially slim and squat in style, determined by the classic circular headlamp with the BMW emblem positioned centrally on the bulb cover.
The classic sports bike has an on-board computer featured as standard, which provides a large and clear display on a segmented screen of information such as time, active gear, remaining range, trip distance, service interval, average speed and fuel consumption.
Its stainless-steel exhaust system with rear silencer positioned on the left-hand side also reflects the style of a classic motorcycle, commonly seen in café racers and roasters of the 1960s and 1970s.
It comes with light alloy cast wheels, as does the R nineT Pure, and is finished in the colour Lightwhite, which appears on the half-fairing, the fuel tank, the front mudguard and the seat hump.
For further customisation, the new classic sports bike can opt for pillion frame, HP carbon parts for the tail cover, mudguard, cover intake snorkel, timing chain cover, and cylinder head cover and cover ignition key and navigation mounting, among others.
Special financing programmes are also available for the new BMW Motorrad Heritage segment motorcycles, courtesy of BMW Credit Malaysia with monthly payments from RM1,490 for the R nineT, RM1,190 for the R nineT Pure and RM1,290 for the R nineT Racer.
The bikes will be on display at the BMW Motorrad Nightfuel event on April 15 from 7:00pm to 10:00pm at the Open Car Park Opposite Pulp Coffee along Jalan Riong in Bangsar.
