2020 BMW R nineT /5

The 2020 BMW R nineT /5 takes the standard bike that is the regular R nineT and turns it into a bike developed to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the legendary /5 series motorcycles. The retro-inspired styling for the rider who wants something that looks classic but offers modern technology and features.

The model features a 1,170cc boxer engine that makes 110 hp and 86 lb-ft of torque. The modern engine makes this motorcycle simple to own and ride. This motorcycle is more than just a style statement, it’s a true performer.

The R nineT /5 is at home in city streets. It’s also at home on a twisty road. It’s a motorcycle that’s designed and built to push the envelope of what the R nineT can be. The motorcycle also comes with a pretty easy to swallow price tag of $12,495.

The motorcycle is available in a beautiful Lupine Blue metallic paint job.
