BMW Motorrad Debuts all-new R 12 nineT

Purist Classic Roadster. Ready to customise. This is the all-new BMW Motorrad R12 nineT, embodying rich heritage and fascination.

The BMW R 12 nineT, following in the footsteps of its predecessor, the R nineT, embodies the rich heritage and fascination of BMW Motorrad. This classic roadster offers a plethora of options for customization, allowing riders to personalize their motorcycles to their heart’s content.

The R 12 nineT features the original 1200 boxer engine with an upgraded airbox and exhaust system, delivering a nostalgic and thrilling riding experience.

The flat-twin engine has been an integral part of BMW motorcycles for a century, known for its distinctive design, powerful acceleration, signature sound, and smooth performance. With the air/oil-cooled boxer engine, the R 12 nineT carries on this tradition.

The design of the R 12 nineT embodies classic and purist elements, with meticulous attention to detail.

Elements like the redesigned front mudguard, clear tank, seat, and rear line are reminiscent of traditional motorcycles like the /5 series and the legendary R 90 S from the 1970s. The tank, in true BMW boxer style, features the characteristic bend in the lower edge and allows for comfortable knee contact. The side covers in the frame triangle area further enhance the authentic roadster look, paying homage to BMW motorcycles of the 1970s.

BMW Motorrad offers an array of attractive customization options through its original accessory range, allowing riders to further personalize their bike. Additionally, the LED rear light unit integrated into the seat enables the realization of a “short tail” design, enhancing the bike’s customizability.

If you like the retro-futuristic aesthetic, the new R 12 nineT is something that is surely up your alley, combining the appeal of traditional motorcycles with innovative technology.
