Woodcliff Lake, NJ – October 12, 2017…Proving that the BMW R nineT is more than just the sleekest member of BMW Motorrad’s Heritage family of motorcycles, BMW Motorrad Motorsports Advisor and test rider Nate Kern earned two national championships in fiercely competitive American Historic Racing Motorcycle Association races at the 13th Annual Barber Vintage Festival, Saturday, October 7.

 

Battling against superbikes producing more than 200 hp, Kern took home a first-place finish in the Battle of the Twins (and the national championship) and the second place podium in the Sound of Thunder II (earning him the Sound of Thunder II National Championship First place trophy for the year) on his 112 hp BMW R nineT.

 

“Such an incredible race season for Kern and his team onboard his trusty BMW R nineT,” commented BMW HP Race Support Engineer Steve Weir. “Two national championships, a box full of wins, and some serious bragging rights on a bike that was truly designed for fun in the sun, canyon runs with friends and Sunday lunches. Or is it? I think it’s a successful merging of heritage and lifestyle with motorsports.”
