2021 BMW R NineT Pure [Model Overview]

2021 BMW R NineT Pure

Back To Basics: The 2021 BMW R NineT Pure

The R nineT Pure is a classic looking roadster with a less-is-more attitude. It features many of the same details as the other R nineT models in the 2021 BMW line-up, but it takes the platform and reduces it down to its bare essentials for a pure riding experience. It’s a European-made roadster for riders looking for minimalistic fun.

The Pure version of the R nineT uses the same classic BMW Motorrad 1,170cc air/oil-cooled, 4-stroke flat twin engine. Thanks to revised cylinder heads to help the R nineT meet new emissions regulations, the engine now produces 109 horsepower and 86 lb-ft of torque—enough to propel the R nineT Pure to speeds in excess of 125 mph.

Though it’s described as a stripped-down motorcycle, there’s more to the R nineT Pure than a boxer engine and a frame. It boasts some impressive standard equipment such as ABS, ACS (Automatic Stability Control), adjustable rear suspension, LED rear lighting, cast alloy wheels, and a steering damper. And for those who want more, there are plenty of exciting additional options to choose from, such as sporty handlebars, upgraded cylinder head covers, and more.

For 2021, the R nineT Pure is available in three color options: Catalano Grey; Option 719 Black Storm Metallic / Aurum; and Option 719 Black Storm Metallic/Light White.

The 2021 BMW R NineT Pure starts at $9,995 USD / $13,650 CAD.
