About R nineT Racer [2018-2019]

The BMW R nineT Racer is based on the standard R nineT but sports a café racer design with a neo-retro appeal. The bike unmistakeably draws inspiration from the ‘70s motorsport bikes with the half-fairing mounted on the frame which exposes the bike’s engine and integrates the round headlamp.

The R nineT Racer also gets a seat cowl which is reminiscent of the early motorcycle racing days. The bike also offers a slightly aggressive riding position thanks to the low-slung handlebars and rear set foot pegs. To boost its vintage appeal, the R nineT Racer gets BMW’s Motorsport livery that runs all the way from the fairing to the seat cowl. It also features a twin pod classic-looking analogue instrument console with small digital displays.

At the heart of the BMW R nineT Racer is a 1170cc air-cooled twin-cylinder boxer engine. It produces 110bhp at 7,750rpm and 116Nm of torque at 6,000rpm via a six-speed gearbox and final shaft drive.

Suspension duties are taken care of by 43mm conventional telescopic forks for the front and a preload adjustable monoshock at the rear. Braking is done by twin 320mm discs up front and a 265mm single disc for the rear wheel. However, the R nineT Racer is not as electronically equipped as the standard R nineT and only gets ABS as standard. BMW offers their ASC (Automatic Stability Control) traction control as an option on the bike.

The BMW R nineT Racer is priced at Rs 17.30 lakhs (ex-showroom). It competes with the Triumph Thruxton R in India.

BMW R nineT Racer [2018-2019] Expert Opinion

  • Good Things

    • Possibly the best looking scrambler in the country
    • Extremely exclusive
    • 110bhp motor is punchy
  • Could be Better

    • Available only in single seat variant
    • Quite pricey
    • Limited sales, service reach

BikeWale's Take

The BMW R nineT Racer is one exclusive café racer. It has been built for people who appreciate clean design lines along with the concept of café racing. The bike is loaded with a punchy engine and gets features that is seen on most of the BMW bikes. But it’s priced quite high. Plus, BMW doesn’t have a great sales and service reach in the country.
