What is it about vintage items that so delights us? Is it the charm of the history or the knowledge that the build quality has endured and that we ‘don’t make things like we used to’? Whatever the reason, vintage and retro objects are ‘in’ and they don’t seem to be going away anytime soon.
This brings us onto the new BMW R nineT. While it may not be authentically vintage, it certainly is retro in its design, harking back to a past era of – and embracing the 90 years of – motorcycle construction enjoyed by the manufacturer. The result is a motorcycle that is effortlessly cool and which will appeal to young and old riders alike.
It’s never easy trying to explain precisely why something is cool. But with the new BMW R nineT, one simple glance is enough for you to concur. The pared-back style of the model embodies everything that motorcycling should stand for: the freedom to take to the open road without a single care in the world. Featuring a striking boxer engine, compact fuel tank, and a slim rear, the BMW R nineT is simple in its appearance but big on personality.
If the humble aesthetic isn’t enough, you can even take advantage of a number of customisation options that let you tailor the bike to your own tastes. The model was designed with a modular concept, enabling you to add in extra R nineT accessories as required, ranging from electronic components to custom seating, navigation systems to protective knee pads on the side of the fuel tank.
A twin-cylinder boxer engine powers the new BMW R nineT, delivering a dynamic 110bhp for a special performance every time. Compatible with the latest EU-4 emissions standards, and featuring BMW Motorrad ABS and optional ASC Automatic Stability Control, you can also be confident that the model is clean and safe when out on the road, giving you the chance to simply enjoy the ride.To view the BMW R nineT for sale at our Aberdeen and Tayside dealerships, visit BMW Motorrad today.
