- Will not develop any new R nineT variants
- Urban G/S was the last of its modern classic range
BMW had introduced the R nineT as a blank canvas for retro motorcycle enthusiasts and custom bike builders. The motorcycle is now available in five trims – standard, Scrambler, Racer, Pure and Urban G/S. All these are based on different genres and are targeted at different sets of audience. Previous reports had suggested that BMW is working on a cruiser version. However, BMW has now put the rumours to rest by announcing that the R nineT range is now complete and that it won’t be developing any new model.
In India, BMW’s Heritage range starts with the R nineT Scrambler at Rs 15.4 lakhs and goes up to the standard bike, which retails at Rs 17.3 lakhs (both ex-showroom). BMW’s rivals, meanwhile, have been expanding their range with new models. Triumph recently added the Speedmaster to its Bonneville range, while Ducati introduced its most powerful Scrambler, the Scrambler 1100.
