Classic, authentic, original – and air cooled. This is what the BMW R nineT stands for. The new bike has unveiled historic new roots to mark the occasion of the BMW 50th anniversary of BMW Motorrad and the 50th anniversary of the BMW 5 Series. In 1969, the first BMW motorcycle rolled off the assembly line in the BMW factory in Berlin Spandau. Now, in 2019 the revised version of the BMW R nineT will embody everything we love about the current model such as the combination of the riding dynamics and superior travel comfort, plus a couple of fresh new innovations. The new NMW R nineT /5 is set to honour the look and spirit of the original.
With the new BMW R nineT /5 nothing has changed when you look at the specification, it’s all about the unique styling. The stunning Lupine Blue metallic paint with a smoke effect bears the anniversary emblem, whilst the completely new chassis and engine captivate the fresh, modern design. What’s more, expect exciting throwback features sure to rekindle your memories of the original model including heated grips and chrome rear mirrors. Furthering this connection, the /5 model will also feature knee pads, an anniversary badge and gaiters on the telescopic fork. The seating has also been revamped with double contoured seat, cross-embossing, grab straps and white piping. Whilst its looks may bring you back to the 60s and 70s the bike is still distinctively modern with standard features including the familiar air and oil-cooled 1,170 cc opposed-twin boxer engine with a power output of 81kW, 6 speed gearbox standard ABS, ASC (automatic stability control) and spoked tube-type rims.
