BMW Motorrad, with Heritage approach, found the past with the R Nine T series, the most beautiful way of carrying it to the future. R5 Hommage’s “Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este” is also the highlight of this heritage. While BMW provides an infrastructure for motorcycles that can be personalized, it also sheds light on the future of the Motorcycle conceptual design, such as Next 100.
Although the name of the leading product in the market is the R1200 GS, this engine has R8G / S in its genes as well as the R NineT, with the 1985 Dakar championship being produced between 1980 and 1987. The R80 GS basic, also known as the engine Nasuh Mahruki goes to Katmandu, is the continuation of this series.
R Nine T Urban G / S, developed on the basis of R nine T, is a citation for exactly those old days.
I try the most favorite model of BMW motorcycles, R Nine T’yi, I give my views.
When I saw the R Nine T test engine, the first hitting point was a brushed aluminum storage. Certainly this should be some version of the engine.
The aphorism that revives in my mind when I see the motorcycle from afar; ‘Less is more’ from Ludwig Mies Van der Rohe. The color schemes and simplicity of the engine design resembles the Barcelona Pavillon of Mies. Due to the influence of the price list By myself I do not mean so much to the motor, I find that BMW is influenced by the simplicity of Mies in showroom designs. The mos design reminds me of the Barcelona Chair, along with the successive mono cover of the motocycle.
The technical details will be a little bit: Ohhlins shock absorbers, brembo braking system, air-cooled boxer motor of the previous version of R1200GS. I’m surprised that no electronic road support is available. R Nine T Scrambler. It can be offered as an option in later versions. Gas sensors instead of gauze, as in most of today’s engines. There’s a shaft transmission, wire wheels.
I had some doubts about the gas response, the shaft transfer, the clarity of the motor reactions. When I got into the engine and started to gas, it was gone. The motorcycle is highly refined, over-thought-out, worked, evident that it is built upon the legacy. It is a heavy engine by its size but it is not possible to feel it on asphalt. I’m looking for a sliding clutch, obviously, I think it’s probably a habit, because when I search for it, the engine is overly torquey, if you use some sport it may cause the gear to lock in the rear.
R One of the most talked about topics in Nine T forums is Slipper Clutch. In fact, the comments are coming up to this Panigale, not to mention a gentleman’s engine. Compared to the Ducati Monster 1200S, which I think is not quite right. If you want to compare this engine, the Triumph Thruxton R can be a more sensible choice. It was comparable to Ducati’s classic engineered Gt Sport 1000, if it offered an engine. So it is true to evaluate motorcycles built on a specific heritage within their own processes.
One of the most controversial topics in the BMW R Nine T forums is the tamburrielli tires that wrap around the wheel rims, many of whom have even gone to tubeless tire kits. When we get caught up in the chain lubrication with the shaft transfer, it does not mean that you will have to deal a little with your tires if you blow it up, but the gentleman breaks and you have to repair the tappet-shaped tire and continue on the road. The Bmw user profile in Zen and Motorcycle maintenance art is alive. Again the R Nine T scrambler is offered tubeless tire. In addition, the shock absorbers are not upside-down and are plastic-shielded to offroad.
There is no motorda telegraph, the front is much more sensual than the GS. The sitting position is very pleasant, neither sleeping nor sleeping. Although the seat is thin, it does not bother. I think the BMW R Nine T Racer is very sporty with the clip-ons. It is a must to have the handlebar minimally affected by a reverse answer that will come from asphalt.
The engine sound is great, classic-looking double-ended akrapovic exhaust from classic single-sided, full-bodied, noisy, no feeling. It’s one of my most favorite parts of the engine. The Double Dial is absolutely fantastic, the simple BMW design, the whole digital story is a place, Scrambler is on this single quadrant, there is no clock.
The engine is very well suited to personalize the infrastructure, as well as being able to handle both the legacy and future demands of the marketplace custom engine. There are tremendous designs. It is quite easy to add a mono lid to the infrastructure and remove the chassis attachment that holds the rear passenger pegs. Both Wunderlich and BMW Motorrad have accessory support.
