Buyer’s Guide Model Detail

Buyer's Guide > R nineT
Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
When it came out, the R nineT was pegged as BMW's factory cafe racer. Now, it's the base for a further refined cafe model, as well as a scrambler and vintage enduro-style bike. But it's still a pretty cool classic-looking bike on its own, powered by the last of the BMW oilheads.
