BMW R nineT is the fourth roadster from the German manufacturer to make its way to India after S1000R, K13000R and the R12000R. The motorcycle will be sold as a completely-built-up (CBU) through all BMW Motorrad dealerships.
The R nineT is powered by air-cooled flat twin 1170cc boxer engine that produces 110bhp at 7550rpm and maximum torque of 119Nm at 6000rpm. This engine is mated to a six-speed gearbox that transfers power to rear wheels via chain drive. BMW claims the fuel efficiency of the motorcycle at 22.kmpl and can reach a top speed of 200kmph.
BMW has designed the motorcycle keeping in café racer theme in mind. The tail section looks very retro because of its overall design. Round headlamps, spoked wheels and aluminium accents make this bike look classic. The pillion seat is removable and the akrapovic exhaust, which runs down the left side of the R nineT, can be mounted in a lowered or raised position, depending on the length of the connector accessory pipe ordered.
The Indian arm of the German manufacturer is providing various customisations to this motorcycle, depending on the customers’ requirements.
