BMW Motorrad has taken the wraps off the R nineT Racer and R nineT Pure targeting fans of old-school motorcycles.

In 2013, BMW acknowledged the “less is more” attitude among many motorcyclists, and responded with the R nineT, a model that has enjoyed a surprising level of success. Motivated by this positive response, BMW Motorrad now presents the R nineT Racer and R nineT Pure – two motorcycles that BMW says adds to its heritage.

Both of the R nineT variants will feature the same 110 horsepower air/oil-cooled 1,170cc Boxer engine found in other R nineT models, mated to a 6-speed transmission.

According to BMW, the Pure and Racer models represent "the roadster reduced to the essentials and the classic, old-school half-faired sports motorcycle. These are both concepts that were popular in the 1960s and 1970s and continue to inspire nostalgia among many motorcycle enthusiasts to this day."

Crouched, compact and elongated, it conveys a sense of old-school sporty aspiration with its strikingly short half-fairing, hump seat, stub handlebars and set-back footrests, combining this overall impression with modern technology.

The R nineT Racer deliberately arouses memories of the sports motorcycles popular in the early 1970s.

In Lightwhite non-metallic combined with decor that is reminiscent of past BMW Motorsport colours, the R nineT Racer is particularly light and athletic in appearance.

The R nineT Pure embodies the essence of the purist, classic roadster – authentically designed, without frills and reduced to the absolute essentials.

Both the new BMW Heritage models feature the potent, air/oil-cooled boxer engine with a capacity of 1,170 cc and an output of 110 horsepower combined with a 6-speed transmission.
