BMW R nineT. Pure Riding.

Motorcycling has always been a passionate lifestyle. For the past 90 years BMW Motorrad has been ensuring that this remains the same in the future, too. For those who like it pure and original, BMW Motorrad has now developed the perfect machine: the BMW R nineT. A motorcycle featuring purist design and numerous ways of customizing it.

BMW R nineT: Pure Authenticity.

Riding a motorcycle and feeling free. The BMW R nineT combines this feeling with a casually cool look which, in spite of all the details, is unmistakably a member of the BMW family. Further criteria such as ride feel, design and sound lay the foundation for an independent, authentic lifestyle.

BMW R nineT: Pure Customizing (Totalmotorcycle.com)

The BMW R nineT is powered by an air/oil-cooled 2-cylinder 4-stroke flat twin engine. The instruments consisting of speedometer and tachometer harken back to historical times and emphasize the essential and minimalist visual appeal of the motorcycle. The BMW R nineT is equipped with an upside down fork at the front and with the BMW Motorrad Paralever at the rear. However, the nineT does not only stand out due to its pure design. The nineT offers great options for individualization. No customizing wish is left unfilled. For example there is the removable rear frame, enough space for 6 inch rims and many other options. Even though the BMW R nineT offers so many modification opportunities it remains a real BMW motorcycle from a technical point of view. Standard-fitted ABS ensures highest-degree safety for the nineT, too.

BMW R nineT. Pure Lifestyle.

Pure passion, pure design, pure riding pleasure. This is what makes the BMW R nineT so essential for the classic enthusiast. Modify, ride, have fun. The nineT leaves nothing to be desired with regard to customization. Design your motorcycle, design your life. One name, one purist lifestyle:
BMW R nineT.

Although its clearly a design derivative of the Griso (nice way of saying BMW ripped off Guzzi's design) I still have to give it an awesome. :)

Ah, not that does make sense as when I saw this bike, I immediately thought "Wow, that bike speaks to me, what an awesome looking machine", and there are very few bikes that do that to me to be honest (and I do see/know thousands upon thousands of them). A BMW Griso, hmmm, not a bad idea, afterall, the Griso is still tied for the #1 Coolest Bike on the 2013 Cool Wall right now.

I almost voted uncool but it's a Beemer and deserves respect, I just don't like the shock placement with the styling other than that it's a good machine but not my cup of Bayern.
there aint nothin like it

I'm sure it is a good bike and fun to drive, but to me it just looks hideous.

Solid cool. For a company with so much history its amazing that it took BMW this long to come up with a bike that sorta alludes to its history. Still wouldn't buy one though. I prefer the R1200R; not as flashy, but more versatile. Still, it's great to have choices.

I'll give it a Cool vote. I like the Griso's looks better, but this isn't bad. Anyone know the price? A reasonable price would improve it's appearance... :mrgreen:

I checked (the price) again when I put this up, it wasn't available at press time and so far, the price isn't listed yet on the BMW sites. I would imagine around the same price as the R1200R ($14,100).

I resisted temptation from the start to put out a Awesome vote. :D

The new 2014 BMW R nineT really speaks to me as a naked bike fan and rider. I've always loved the R1200R myself but found it looks like the "body" was just sitting on top of the engine. But now this has the right curves and integration, even the boxer engine to me looks higher up and won't drag in a corner (not that they do, it just looks like they could). It's really unique that BMW has offered 3 different looks to the bike that the rider can do, there are very, very few motorcycles that offer such a radial look. I'm not a big fan of the no-backseat option, but I bet it would turn heads!

Really awesome BMW, in fact, when one comes into Houston, I'll take it for a spin and see if it rides as good as it looks. Might be my next bike (or my second one) in a few years time.

Same it's only in black though.
