– BMW Motorrad Malaysia today presents the New BMW R nineT, BMW R nineT Pure and BMW R nineT Scrambler. Honed with several technical modifications and an advanced range of standard equipment, the family of retro roadsters stays true to their uncomplicated style that offers unmistakeable presence.
Hans De Visser, Managing Director of BMW Group Malaysia said, “Our portfolio of premium motorcycles are developed with decades of rich heritage that is unique to each model. The BMW R nineT family of retro roadsters is no exception and exemplifies that trademark. Built upon a timeless design and honed with classic BMW Motorrad proportions, immense attention to detail has been poured into the New BMW R nineT models – reflecting the passion and innovation of over 90 years of motorcycle construction that motorcycle enthusiasts around the world have come to expect and appreciate from BMW Motorrad.”
The New BMW R nineT combines classic motorcycle design and modern technology, while offering a wide range of customisation options. Modelled on a classic archetype, the BMW R nineT’s design is the perfect canvas to produce attractive variants in the New BMW R nineT Pure – a roadster reduced to the bare essentials, and the New BMW R nineT Scrambler – an homage to this distinctive motorcycle genre for those who love a purist, non-conformist style. The three highly-anticipated variants are now available in Malaysia to captivate riders and motorcycling enthusiasts nationwide.
Classic, timeless design – honed with the essentials in mind.
The timeless design of the New BMW R nineT models is now enhanced with the standard inclusion of the Headlight Pro offering. The models now feature adaptive headlights and indicator lights in LED technology. The seamless implementation of full LED headlamps, including the daytime running lamp and brakelight, demonstrates that state-of-the-art LED lighting technology is ideally suited for implementation in classic headlamp designs too. Both the New BMW R nineT Pure and the New BMW R nineT Scrambler are now fitted with a chrome-plated header pipe, while the silencer design option has been fitted as standard exclusively for the New BMW R nineT Pure.
Completing the New BMW R nineT models’ classic appearance is a newly designed circular instrument with analogue speedometer display and integrated indicator lights that are “invisible” when not illuminated. Housed in a high-quality metal casing and bearing the BMW logo, it follows the principle of reduction to the essentials – the classic approach that has always been used in designing the BMW R nineT family. The circular instrument considers the desire for the greatest possible degree of freedom in customisation. Additionally, the extended range of standard equipment in the New BMW R nineT models is supplemented with the addition of a USB charging socket.
The boxer engine has undergone both technical and visual fine-tuning and is now designed to meet the requirements of the EU-5 pollutant class and noise regulations. Its peak power output is now 80 kW (109 hp) at 7,250 rpm, while the maximum torque is 116 Nm at 6,000 rpm. Newly designed cylinder heads provide a more harmonious transition from the outer to the inner cooling fins, and newly designed throttle valve parts and cylinder head covers now give the bike even greater aesthetic appeal.
Inside the cylinder heads, there is a new turbulence system which swirls the mixture to ensure even better and cleaner combustion and increased torque. Thanks to an even more full-bodied power and torque curve – especially in the range between 4,000 and 6,000 rpm – pulling power levels are now better than before.
ABS Pro, which includes the Dynamic Brake Control (DBC) are now standard features for the New BMW R nineT models, allowing for a greater degree of control and safety even when braking at banking angles. This is achieved via preventing unintentional accelerator activation. By means of intervention in the engine control, drive torque is reduced during braking to make full use of the braking power at the rear wheel, thus maintaining stability and shortening the braking distance.
Another newly added standard feature in the New BMW R nineT models is a new suspension strut which now has travel-dependent damping (WAD). The innovative damping system contributes to an even greater degree of balance and comfort during the ride. Adjustment of the spring preload on the suspension strut can be conveniently made via an easily accessible hand wheel.
For needed versatility while keeping only the essentials, the New BMW R nineT models are fitted as standard with the “Rain” and “Road” riding modes. In “Rain” mode, a gentle throttle response combined with sensitive control of the ASC (Automatic Stability Control) ensures increased safety when accelerating in slippery road conditions such as on a wet road surface. In the “Road” riding mode, the throttle response is balanced, and ASC control is geared towards dry and non-slip road conditions.
In terms of colour offerings, the New BMW R nineT arrives in Black Storm Metallic as a standard paint finish. Additional colour options include the Option 719 Aluminium and Option 719 Night Black matte/Aluminium matte. The New BMW R nineT Pure is available in Teal Blue metallic matte and Mineral Grey metallic. Finally, the New BMW R nineT Scrambler is available in Kalamata metallic matte with tape.
The New BMW R nineT, BMW R nineT Pure and BMW R nineT Scrambler will be available at selected authorised BMW Motorrad dealerships nationwide from 27th August 2021.
