BMW R nineT Roadsters: Retro but futuristic?

BMW has certainly been gaining quite the attention with their amazing bikes and concepts, especially with their plans on producing futuristic bikes in order amp up their style and range.

The brand took on retro bikes in its best form with their popular R nineT Roadster.

The BMW R nineT Racer and the nineT Pure preserve the essential theme of the brand, using the R nineT as a base platform, sharing a frame andr the stalwart Boxer Twin engine. Despite that, both bikes have distinctly diverse characters.

The Pure weighs a total of 483 pounds and its style is very straightforward with a comfortable seating position. It is a bare-bones motorcycle and is an open canvas for personalization with any accessories of the riders’ liking.

The Racer weighs a total of 485 pounds and is a focused canyon caver with clip-on handlebars that put the rider into a racing and tucked behind an old-school bubble fairing. Not to mention, its design is said to be a little more aggressive than the Pure. Inspired by the 70s, the Racer has a sleek profile and flowing lines that carry through from the half fairing to the tail hump.

Both machines feature the air-cooled 1170cc, DOHC Boxer powerplant that produces 110 horsepower and 86 ft lbs of torque. It also has a 6-speed transmission and shaft drive.

They both also have a removable sub section, providing an easy seat transformation.
