2020 BMW R nineT Pure : PURE. SIMPLIFIED. AIR-COOLED..

2020 BMW R nineT Pure Guide.

The BMW R nineT Pure is perfect for everyone who loves the classic roadster design and is looking for a pure motorcycle experience. It is reminiscent of the 1970’s and 80’s era. But its roots go deeper. Even the very first motorcycle from BMW was simple and dynamic. Back then, in 1923, the BMW opposed-twin engine was already the heart of the entire concept. Today, the R nineT Pure offers you many options to customize your motorcycle. You can realize your dreams: for your bike and your lifestyle. You will feel its origin, whether you’re customizing it, or enjoying the thrill of opening the throttle.

The new BMW R nineT Racer and R nineT Pure: purist roadster feeling and athletic dynamic performance based on classic concepts.

For a lot of motorcycle fans, less is very often more – which is why they opt for “pure motorcycling” and the kind of motorbike that credibly and authentically embodies this approach.

BMW Motorrad responded to this trend with the R nineT in 2013 – a model that has enjoyed ongoing success and popularity ever since. This was a good reason for the BMW Motorrad team to follow up with the R nineT Scrambler in 2015, another fascinating specimen of classic motorcycle design which once again received enthusiastic feedback.

Motivated by this positive response, BMW Motorrad now presents the R nine T Racer and R nineT Pure – two motorcycles that add two exciting new facets to the BMW Motorrad Heritage world of experience: the roadster reduced to the essentials and the classic, old-school half-faired sports motorcycle. These are both concepts that were popular in the 1960s and 1970s and continue to inspire nostalgia among many motorcycle enthusiasts to this day.

Both the new BMW Heritage models feature the potent, air/oil-cooled boxer engine with a capacity of 1 170 cc and an output of 81 kW (110 hp) combined with a 6-speed transmission. They are both designed to meet the requirements of the EU4 pollutant class. The design of the exhaust system in stainless steel with the rear silencer positioned on the left reflects classic styling.

2020 BMW R nineT Pure Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Modular frame with individual scope for customising.

On the suspension side, the R nineT Racer and R nineT Pure make use of the modular steel tubular space frame familiar from the R nineT Scrambler consisting of the three components front main frame, rear main frame and removable passenger frame. The latter provides flexibility to change the appearance and character of the two BMW boxer models according to preference, for example by adding different seats from the range of Original BMW Motorrad Accessories. Front wheel control is taken care of by a conventional telescopic fork while at the rear the BMW Paralever comes into use in conjunction with a central spring strut. The five-spoke light alloy cast wheels in the sizes 3.5 x 17″ at the front and 5.5 x 17″ at the rear have tyres in the dimensions 120/70 ZR 17 and 180/55 ZR 17 respectively. 4-piston brake calipers at the front along with floating brake discs with a diameter of 320 millimetres and ABS ensure secure deceleration. In order to prevent the rear wheel from spinning on slippery roads, there is an ASC (Automatic Stability Control) option which is available ex works. Wire-spoked wheels are an option that further emphasise the classic appearance.

 

R nineT Pure: purist roadster for dynamic, classic riding pleasure on country roads.

The R nineT Pure embodies the essence of the purist, classic roadster – authentically designed, without frills and reduced to the absolute essentials. The design draws on a blend of both classic and modern stylistic elements of motorcycle construction combined with high-end details such as footrests and fork bridges in forged aluminium with a clear anodised finish.

The fuel tank and front mudguard of the BMW R nineT Pure are finished in the colour Catalano Grey non-metallic. In combination with black for the suspension and drivetrain, this colour emphasises the purist character of the R nineT Pure as a roadster for dynamic, classic riding pleasure on country roads.

 

R nineT Racer: classic 1970s sports motorcycle feeling.

The R nineT Racer deliberately arouses memories of the sports motorcycles popular in the early 1970s. Crouched, compact and elongated, it conveys a sense of old-school sporty aspiration with its strikingly short half-fairing, hump seat, stub handlebars and set-back footrests, combining this overall impression with modern technology.

In Lightwhite non-metallic combined with decor that is reminiscent of past BMW Motorsport colours, the R nineT Racer is particularly light and athletic in appearance. The frame finished in Aluminium Silver prominently presents an architectural contrast with the black drivetrain, underscoring the standing of the R nineT Racer as an old-school sports motorcycle designed for dynamic riding fun on winding roads.
