In conjunction with BMW Motorrad celebrating its centenary year, BMW Motorrad Malaysia introduces the limited edition version of its retro-inspired roadster, the BMW R nineT.
Coming in at RM129,500, the New BMW R nineT 100 Years is a tribute to the company’s passion-driven and soul-fueled heritage that spans a century of motorcycle construction. The model has been limited to only 1,923 units worldwide, with just ten units available for the Malaysian market.
Hans de Visser, Managing Director of BMW Group Malaysia, said, “The BMW R nineT encapsulates the great roadster tradition of BMW Motorrad in a particularly refined and sophisticated manner, culminating 100 years of motorcycle construction and a persevering passion for the Boxer engine.” He added that the ten exclusive units of the New BMW R nineT 100 Years will be available for passionate riders in Malaysia, representing SoulFuel in its most exclusive form.
The New BMW R nineT 100 Years has a reduced design language that skilfully sets the scene with a compact tank and upright seating position, along with high-quality materials and stylish design elements.
The exclusive centennial edition of the classic roadster is characterized by numerous special features, alongside an elaborate surface concept. The Black Storm metallic paintwork on the chrome-plated tank is a vital, special feature of the 100 Years edition, paying homage to the 1969 R 75/5.
The New BMW R nineT 100 Years revives the almost 100-year tradition of combining paint finishes and chrome surfaces with the Classic Chrome surface concept. The sophisticated interplay of paint and chrome is represented by a combination of black with chrome and white double-lining on the tank, complemented by tank grips and a 100 Years badge.
Standard equipment for the New BMW R nineT 100 Years are LED headlights with daytime riding light, dual speed indicator and rational-speed sensor instruments, Automatic Stability Control (ASC), Riding Modes Rain & Road, drive train and final drive in black finish, rear suspension with fully adjustable spring preload by handwheel, and fully adjustable upside-down telescopic front forks.
The New BMW R nineT 100 Years is powered by the legendary 1,170cc air/oil-cooled flat twin four-stroke Boxer engine, capable of generating 80 kW (109 hp) and 116 Nm of torque. The model is equipped with twin-disc brakes with four-piston callipers for the front and a single-disc brake with double-piston floating callipers for the rear, ensuring reliable braking. The latest generation of BMW Motorrad ABS Pro is featured as standard for greater riding safety.
