BMW Motorrad has uncovered the 2021 model range of its highly popular R nineT motorcycles. The new line-up consists of four models (Standard, Pure, Scrambler, and Urban G/S) that feature an updated Euro5 engine and much more.
The biggest change in the 2021 BMW R nineT range is the less polluting engine. BMW Motorrad has incorporated several changes in the boxer powerplant to make it comply with the latest emission regulations. For example, a new turbulence system inside the cylinder heads has been used which is said to swirl the air-fuel mixture to ensure even better and cleaner combustion and increased torque.
In its Euro5 guise, the engine is capable of delivering 107 bhp of maximum power at 7,250 rpm and 116 Nm of peak torque at 6,000 rpm. BMW Motorrad has also made a few styling tweaks to the engine such as newly designed cylinder heads, throttle valve parts, and cylinder head covers.
For the safety features, the entire 2021 BMW R nineT range gets ABS Pro including Dynamic Brake Control (DBC) as standard, however, Dynamic Traction Control (DTC) and engine drag torque control (MSR) are available as optional extras. For riding modes, we get “Rain” and “Road” as standard. On the other hand, the R nineT and R nineT Pure get the “Dyna” mode while the R nineT Scrambler and R nineT Urban G/S benefit from “Dirt” mode as an option.
Some of the other key updates that BMW Motorrad has included in the 2021 R nineT range include full-LED lighting, USB charging port, and a circular instrument cluster. There is also a comfort package which will add Riding Modes Pro, cruise control, and heated handlebar grips.
