BMW Philippines Launches The New 2021 R NineT Models

When BMW Motorrad presented the R nineT in 2013, it was more than just a roadster modelled on a classic archetype: from the very outset it combined classic motorcycle design and modern technology with excellent craftsmanship and a wide range of customization options. Today, after more than 80,000 units of the R nineT sold globally (700 in the Philippines), SMC Asia Car Distributors Corporation is launching the new 2021 BMW R nineT line-up.

All variants of the new R nineT are available through five (5) BMW Motorrad dealerships nationwide and will come with the class-leading BMW Motorrad Warranty, which covers each motorcycle for 5 years or 500,000-kilometers, whichever comes first.

For use in the new R nineT models, the boxer engine has undergone both technical and visual fine-tuning and is now designed to meet the Euro 5 emissions standard. Despite adhering to stricter emissions, peak output remains the same (109 horsepower versus 110 horsepower previously) at 7,750 rpm, while maximum torque remains at 116 Nm at 6,000 rpm.

BMW says this was achieved through revised cylinder heads. Newly designed cooling fins, throttle valve parts, and cylinder head covers also add greater aesthetic appeal.

Even in the standard version, the new R nineT models now feature ABS Pro in combination with DBC (Dynamic Brake Control) for increased safety when braking – at banking angles as well as in difficult situations. Standard features also include a new shock absorber with travel-dependent damping (WAD), providing enhanced suspension comfort and convenient adjustment of the spring preload via a hand wheel. “Rain” and “Road” riding modes are now included as standard, too.

The standard trim in the R nineT models includes a circular instrument with a newly designed dial featuring the BMW logo as well as indicator lights that are “invisible” when not illuminated. Likewise, the new R nineT models now have a headlamp and white indicator lights in LED technology. The extended range of standard equipment in the new R nineT models is supplemented with a USB charging socket.

BMW Motorrad has significantly advanced the new R nineT models – both technically and visually. Riding Modes Pro with the additional modes “Dyna” for the R nineT and “Dirt” for the R nineT Urban G/S are now available as standard for the 2 models, as are DTC (Dynamic Traction Control) and engine drag torque control (MSR). Another new feature is the Comfort Package, comprising Riding Modes Pro, Cruise Control and Heated Grips. The turning light and the rear silencer design are likewise new to the range of individual extras.

Meanwhile, the traditional “Option 719” offers particularly exclusive and high-quality options for customization of the R nineT to suit the owner’s personal taste. This exclusive range of parts now includes such items as various wheels, milled parts packages and – from the Original BMW Motorrad Accessories range – a rear conversion with short rear end and number plate holder behind the rear wheel, as well as a rear end in tracker style (Tracker rear end). The enhancements for the R nineT model family are rounded off with new paint finishes.
