The BMW R nineT is unique in that it stays true to classic BMW designs of the past while also maintaining a retro roadster design, even as its considerable 1200 cc boxer engine establishes itself as a high-end superbike. The bike is in such high demand that the waiting list to get one is running up to 12 months in some countries.
The BMW R nineT was designed to be reductionist, in that it is intended to be a bike reduced to its essence and shorne of bells and whistles and gimmicks. It is intended to function as something of a 'blank canvas' of a bike that owners can customize depending on their needs and desires. The entire back half of the bike can be manipulated between different options.
In summary, this bike blends old-school charm and modernity perfectly, and provides excellent handling.
