BMW has introduced the new and beautiful R 12 nineT. The classic roadster has been developed by following in the footsteps of the successful R nineT and carrying forward its archetypal look, timelessness, and high customization qualities.
The new BMW R 12 nineT combines the authentic and beefy character of the boxer engine and the design language of traditional motorcycle eras with innovative technology and a modular concept that offers the rider maximum customization options. Reduction to the essentials and attention to detail were key priorities in the development of the design, resulting in a strong emotional appeal.
The air/oil-cooled 11700 cc boxer engine delivers 109 hp at 7,000 rpm in the new BMW R 12 nineT. The motorcycle also features a new airbox. The left-mounted “Twin Pipe” exhaust system with two rear silencers with reverse cone design caters to the desire for a classically designed, sporty roadster.
The new R 12 nineT comes equipped with two analogue round instruments for speed and rpms, a USB-C port on the left side, and a 12V socket on the right side for the onboard network. The round instruments continue to support customization by communicating via a LIN-Bus and separating the control and display units. The standard instrumentation for the new R 12 is limited to the speedometer, but the rev counter can be retrofitted with genuine BMW Motorcycle accessories.
