BMW motorcycle just introduced the new BMW R 12 nineT in commemoration of the “100 years of BMW Motorrad“, exactly ten years after the launch of the original R nineT.
Like the BMW R nineT, introduced in 2013, the new BMW R 12 nineT It is a pure, powerful classic roadster, offering a wealth of concept options for almost unlimited customization and individualization.
Dr. Markus Schramm, Head of BMW Motorrad, said: “The R nineT and its personalization concept established the new Heritage experience for BMW Motorrad’s 90th birthday and has become an indispensable pillar of our model range. The new R 12 nineT continues the successful Heritage story around the legendary BMW boxer engines with an even more classic and scaled-down design language, greater degrees of freedom when it comes to personalization and, last but not least, important, new and innovative technology.
100 years ago, the first BMW motorcycle arrived: the R 32, powered by an air/oil-cooled, inline-twin engine. The unmistakable design of the boxer, its powerful acceleration, its unique power delivery, its distinctive sound and its smooth running quickly made it a legendary synonym of BMW motorcycles. With its boxer engine, also air/oil cooled, the new R 12 nineT continues this great tradition. The number 12 has been added to reflect the model’s engine capacity, as is done on other BMW motorcycle models.
Even more than its predecessor, the new R 12 nineT combines the strong visible character of the boxer engine, a classic design language from bygone motorcycle eras, innovative technology and a modular concept that offers the rider maximum customization options. Reduced even more to the essentials, it offers a high emotional appeal.
Edgar Heinrich, Head of Design at BMW Motorrad, explained: “The purist design language is dominated by the clear tank/seat/rear line, in the style of the traditional /5 or the legendary R 90 S from the 1970s. At first glance, the tank itself is a classic BMW boxer tank, with a typical camber at the bottom edge and classic knee contact. The new R 12 NineT also features side covers in the triangle area of the chassis in an authentic roadster look, another reminiscence of the BMW motorcycles of the 70s.”
Attention to detail is evident in the redesigned front fender, LED headlight design, and two round indicators. As is tradition, attractive customization options are offered as part of the range of Original BMW Motorrad Accessories. With customization in mind, the new R 12 nineT features a seat-integrated LED rear light unit for a “short tail” look.
