2020 BMW R nineT Pure

The 2020 BMW R nineT Pure takes the standard bike that is the regular R nineT and crafts it into a very pure and more basic riding experience. The bike features retro-inspired styling and is mostly the same as the R nine-T /5 but without the special edition features.

The model features a 1,170cc boxer engine that makes 110 hp and 86 lb-ft of torque. The modern but air-cooled engine provides some simplicity in an era of motorcycling that couldn’t be more complicated and high tech. It’s a quality engine with good power.

The R nineT Pure is at home in city streets. It’s also at home on a curvy country lane. It’s a motorcycle that’s designed and built to look backward and forwards at the same time. The motorcycle also has a nice price tag of only $9,995.

The motorcycle is available in Catalano Grey, Option 719 Storm Metallic/Aurum, or Option 719 Black Strom Metallic/Light White.

2020 BMW R nineT Pure Features

Safety included – thanks to ABS and standard ASC.

The R nineT Pure is open to your ideas. When it comes to safety, it quite clearly reflects our ideas: this is why it is fitted with the BMW Motorrad ABS as standard. And the standard ASC (Automatic Stability Control) prevents the rear wheel from spinning and ensures more efficient power transmission, for more active riding safety.

Seat options.

The R nineT Pure offers the following three possibilities: there is a passenger seat with passenger frame fitted as standard. You can also quickly dismantle the passenger seat, if you are riding solo. This gives rise to a bit more storage space beneath the small seat hump. Or you ride the R nineT Pure in a very sporty and stylistically puristic way: without passenger seat and without passenger frame.
