2023 BMW R nineT: BUBBLE, CHINA OR EARL GREY… HAVE IT YOUR WAY.

Introducing the 2023 BMW R nineT…

CLASSIC, PURE, PASSIONATE

Thoroughly reduced. And yet entirely present. The BMW R nineT. The classic roadster embodies the passion and innovation of over 90 years of motorcycle design, with high-quality materials and careful workmanship in the smallest detail. Its iconic boxer engine now blends in even better with the original proportions. And lets you power over the asphalt with its improved torque curve. Countless individualization options mean no limits when it comes to your self-realization. Become part of the #Soulfuel community and show who you really are with your R nineT.

The classic from the Heritage family has, in addition to its iconic air/oil-cooled boxer engine, numerous highlights like the adjustable suspension strut, the analog dual round instruments, and the “Rain” and “Road” riding modes.

“High-quality materials, hand-made character. The R nineT is the first choice of many fans of customization. ” – Dominic Thönnes
