BMW R nineT series launched in India, starts at Rs 16.75 lakh – Times of India


NEW DELHI: BMW Motorrad India on Friday launched the R nineT and the R nineT Scrambler. The motorcycles will take the CBU route to India.
The BMW R nineT is priced at Rs 16.75 lakh (ex-showroom) while the R nineT scrambler is priced at Rs 18.50 lakh (ex-showroom). The bookings for the motorcycles have commenced now.
The R nineT brothers are powered by a 1170cc air/oil-cooled, 2-cylinder, 4-stroke engine. The engine offers 109 HP of power and 119 Nm of torque. The motorcycles clock 0-100 kmph in 3.5 seconds and achieve a top speed of 200 kmph.

The motorcycles feature two standard riding modes – ‘Rain’ and ‘Road’. In ‘Rain’ mode, a gentle throttle response combined with sensitive control of the Automatic Stability Control (ASC) ensures increased safety when accelerating in slippery road conditions such as on a wet road surface. In the ‘Road’ riding mode, the throttle response is balanced, and ASC control is geared towards dry and non-slip road conditions.
The R nineT motorcycles feature a newly designed circular instrument with analogue speedometer display and integrated indicator lights, housed in a high-quality metal casing and bearing the BMW logo. The models also feature LED headlamp including daytime running light.
“The new BMW R nineT and the new BMW R nineT Scrambler are an expression of a timeless motorcycling culture that celebrates pure riding, sportiness and yet absolutely stands apart in its design and appeal. Deriving its charm from the past, it delivers ultimate riding pleasure of today. We are delighted to add yet another exciting new facet to the BMW Motorrad heritage world of experience in India, one that inspires nostalgia among enthusiasts to this day,” said Vikram Pawah, President, BMW Group India.
