The factory supports the R nineT with what it calls a “modular steel tubular space frame” that runs with a removable subframe section as part of the configurable seating feature. As with its modern naked-sport counterparts, the R nineT relies on the strength of the engine case khổng lồ replace the downtube & cradle sections of the frame khổng lồ keep things as light as possible. It seems like it paid off as the R nineT weighs in at only 485-pounds soaking wet.

Now, BMW is known for its, shall we say, non-mainstream suspension systems, & even though it sticks with common-enough inverted forks up front, the rear over is more typical of the br&. Beemer’s Paralever system springs off the single-side, cast-aluminum swingarm with the ubiquitous spring-preload adjustment alongside a variable rebound-damping feature. A phối of 17-inch cast-aluminum wheels come lined with a 120/70 tire up front and a 180/55 out baông xã, & in case you’re wondering what kind of performance you can expect from it, the race-tire “ZR” rating should tell you what you need to lớn know.

In addition khổng lồ the potential for great speeds, the factory blessed it with a 26.8-degree steering head and 4.2 inches of trail that promise relative stability with an eagerness in the corners, plus a steering damper lớn absorb some of the kickback at the bar.A pair of four-pot calipers bite dual, 3trăng tròn milimet front discs to lớn provide the bulk of the stopping power with a twin-piston anchor & 265 mm disc out bachồng. BMW’s proprietary ABS represents the only safety equipment that comes with the stoông xã package.

Air-cooled 1,170 cc twin boxer engine 110 horsepower và 86 lb-ft of torque Automatic stability control
The boxer that adds so much khổng lồ the overall panađậy in the R nineT runs with 101 milimet bores và a 73 mm stroke for a total of 1,170 cc tucked away within the twin jugs. A DOHC thiết đặt actuates the four valves in each head, & though the engine relies mainly on air cooling khổng lồ eliminate the waste heat, it gets some backup from an oil-cooling system that protects the engine’s lifeblood và draws off even more BTUs.


The mill runs a counter-balancer lớn help mitigate some of the vibration lớn give your hands và butt a break from the pins-and-needles. Dual throttle bodies meter the fuel, but there’s very little in the way of fandanglery as the only other electronic ride aid is Beemer’s Automatic Stability Control that was taken out of options for 20đôi mươi & added as standard equipment.

The power develops with a fairly linear progression to the tune of 110 horsepower at 7,750 rpm with 86 pounds o’ grunt that maxes out at six grand & turns in speeds over 125 mph after the power filters through the six-speed tranny that rocks helical-cut gears for quiet power transfer. Fuel efficiency is fairly typical at 44 mpg, so it could certainly make a decent commuter, & it meets EU-4 emissions so you can use it anywhere in the U.S.

Ya know, the first xe đạp I thought of when I saw the R nineT was Triumph’s new Thruxton RS, so that’s what I’m rolling with for the head-to-head.

Triumph Thruxton RS


The Trumpet’s lines and sheet metal is fairly comparable, và hits all the same high points from the long, knee-relief fuel tank back to lớn the tail cover though the rear-over comes off a bit more cluttered compared khổng lồ the Beemer due khổng lồ the fender style.

Fully adjustable suspension components tư vấn the Thruxton for an edge, và as I’m always fond of pointing out, the Thruxton’s throttle bodies are modeled khổng lồ look lượt thích those old mechanical-slide carbs, và that’s a historical touch that really floats my boat. Triumph sticks to a classic downtube/cradle frame, và I hardly notice the radiator that mounts right up front.


Looks come down to lớn taste, but the engines are much easier to lớn qualify. Trumpet is found to be wanting with its classic parallel-twin mill that churns out 103 horsepower và 83 pound-feet of torque against the Beemer’s 110/86. No, it’s not a big difference, but it’s a difference all the same. Point to BMW.

Both marques chuck on some advanced electronics such as traction control and riding modes lớn more or less break even on the tech front. Triumph lets loose of its Thruxton RS for $16,200 so it comes off looking kinda’ proud against the $15,495 sticker on the R nineT.

He Said

“Personally, I think I prefer the Triumph in this particular instance, but I can’t say how much the aesthetics alone are affecting that assertion. One thing is for sure, the Thruxton is liable to appeal to lớn the same sort of buyer, and both bring something lớn the table. Since both support some pretty solid safety electronics và rochồng proven engines, the choice literally narrows down khổng lồ price và kiến thiết taste.”

She Said

My wife and fellow motorcycle writer, Allyn Hinton, says, “It’s a little deceiving to hotline this the base Model because it’s really the top of the range for the R nineT family. It’s surprisingly agile; I say “surprisingly” because it looks like it’ll be a bit hefty, but once it gets rolling, it’s nice lớn handle.”
