THE BMW R NINET RACER

STRONG CHARACTER. DYNAMIC. AIR-COOLED.

The R nineT Racer lets you relive the era of legendary superbikes. Far removed from obsessive retro romanticism, but rather on a customizable bike with innovative technology and in customary BMW Motorrad quality. Crouched behind the striking half fairing, both hands tight on the low-slung handlebar grips, you can feel the powerful boxer work, you hear its unmistakable roar. And you already know: only a strong character can hold the racing line. On the road, as in life.

The design of the R nineT Racer

Style in the fast lane.

The design of the R nineT Racer unmistakably takes inspiration from the motorsports bikes of the 70’s. The elongated proportions extend through the entire design and promise pure acceleration. The distinctive half-shell fairing, the tank and the seat shape the slim silhouette. The long wheelbase and the low-slung handlebars positioned far to the front complete the low, sporty seating position. Then the high-set, far back footrests: as a rider, you lean into an aggressive riding position. Surrounded by the white bodywork, which clearly stands out against the dark driving parts and technology. Even the BMW Motorsports colors seem to constantly call for the next corner.

A powerful boxer for chasing the racing line.

The R nineT Racer's technology is just as confident and strong as its design: the drive and the vehicle electrical system have thrilled since the introduction of the BMW R nineT. Being state-of-the-art, the R nineT Racer also meets the EU-4 standard. The powerful air-cooled, two-cylinder boxer engine features a capacity of 1170 cc and 110 hp (81kW) of output for a highly dynamic power delivery, even at low speeds. Simply a boxer. Thanks to the half fairing and the low seating position, you can even enjoy wind protection whatever pace you are riding. The standard ABS and optional ASC add confidence while riding.

You ride like you sit.

Sporty and dynamic: the R nineT Racer's handlebars are positioned low on the upper fork bridge. The moderate offset protects the wrists. The footrests, on the other hand, have made their way backwards and upwards to support the sporty seating position. In addition, the optional custom rider's seat lowers the seat height from 31.7” to 31.2”. The cushion on the rider's seat is slightly raised at the rear. This provides perceptible relief for the back on long rides.

  • Old classics meet state of the art technology: ABS and optional ASC.

    The R nineT Racer connects the appearance of racing days gone by with state-of-the-art technology. This is why the BMW Motorrad ABS is fitted as standard. And the optional ASC (Automatic Stability Control) prevents the rear wheel from slipping and ensures more efficient power transmission, for more active riding safety.

  • Seat options.

    The R nineT Racer takes inspiration from the motorsports of days gone by. That's why, as standard, it only has room for you – completely solo and pure. The retrofittable passenger frame quickly makes it into a two-seater. Just one of many possibilities to make your bike look however you want.
