R NINE T RACER

OVERVIEW

TECHNICAL DATA

The BMW R nineT Racer.

Unwavering. 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 customisable 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 unmistakeable roar. And you already know: only a strong character can hold the racing line. On the road, as in life.

Style in the fast lane.

The design of the R nineT Racer unmistakably takes inspiration from the 70s motorsports. 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 literally lie on the bike. Surrounded by the white bodywork, which clearly stands out against the dark driving parts and technology. Even the tape that runs from the front to the rear in the BMW motorsport colours seems to constantly call for the next acceleration.

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 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 ccm and 81 kW (110 bhp) of output for a highly dynamic power delivery, even at low speeds. Simply a typical boxer. Thanks to the half fairing and the low seating position, you can even enjoy continuous high speeds. The standard ABS and optional ASC ensure that you are always safe when you bring the full power on the road. In addition, the 2-in-1 exhaust in the typical café racer design shows that the technology does not have to hide, either.

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 805 mm to 795 mm. The cushion on the rider’s seat is slightly raised at the rear. This ensures perceptible relief for the back on long rides. Just like the dynamically designed half fairing – especially at speeds of over 90 km/h.

Customising with style.

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. It is focused – and it shows. The retrofittable pillion frame quickly makes it into a two-seater. Just one of many possibilities to make your bike look however you want. The custom range of optional equipment available ex-works contains, among other things, two aluminium tanks and spoked wheels. You can add original BMW Motorrad accessories such as HP carbon parts or an HP sports silencer. The R nineT Racer is also optimally prepared for specially manufactured mounted parts, such as the new Machined Parts. Because it loves tinkering hands just as much as the
