We think the 2017 BMW R nineT Racer (the white one, with BMW Motorsports red and blue accents) is totally hot! The R nineT Pure looks a bit dull in comparison
BMW Motorrad have unveiled new versions of the R nineT at the Intermot - the R nineT Racer, an old school half-faired 1970s-style sportsbike, and the R nineT Pure, the roadster reduced to just the bare essentials. Of the two, we really love the R nineT Racer, which gets the retro vibe just right with its 1970s styling and BMW Motorsport colours of the past. However, both bikes are powered by the same 1170cc Euro 4-compliant Boxer-twin that produces 110bhp and 119Nm of torque. Both bikes ride on 17-inch cast alloy wheels (wire-spoked wheels are optional), with twin 320mm brake discs up front and standard ABS. Other notable bits include stainless steel 2-in-1 exhaust system, fork bridges and footrests in forged aluminium and stability control (ASC) as an optional extra.
Both bikes will hit BMW showrooms in Europe in March this year. The BMW R nineT Pure is priced at 12,300 euro, while the R nineT Racer comes in at 13,300 euro. Nice!
