2022 BMW R nineT / Pure / Scrambler / Urban GS

The 2022 BMW R nineT: The Nostalgic Bagger

The R nineT line of bikes from BMW Motorrad are retro cool, classic standard bikes that stand out thanks to the powerful air/oil-cooled twin-cylinder boxer engine, drawing 109 hp from its 1,170 cc displacement. Power reaches the rear wheel via a shaft drive and a six-speed gearbox.

This European standard comes in 4 variations for the 2022 lineup, Standard nineT, Pure, Scrambler, and Urban G/S, each having unique styling features, but all share LED lighting, Automatic Stability Control (ASC), and selectable ride modes. All versions offer unique 719 paint choices, options like Ride Modes Pro, Cruise Control, and heated grips.

The R nine T is a nimble ride and exudes quality at every touch. Brembo brakes with ABS, Akrapovic exhaust, and the slick single-sided swingarm, each component shows off BMW’s high build quality. The only real choice is to decide which model speaks to your soul.

The 2022 BMW R nineT starts at $15,945 USD / $17,695 CAD.

The 2022 BMW R nineT Pure starts at $10,995 USD / $13,795 CAD.

The 2022 BMW R nineT Scrambler starts at $12,995 USD / $14,995 CAD.
