In 2013 BMW turned 90 years of history in the manufacturing of motorcycles, to celebrate, the brand decided not to make a special version of one of its existing models, but a completely new bike! One that is able to convey the essence of motorcycling before but, with technology and benefits of modern bikes.the Nine T was introduced as one of the most beautiful in the current market, made in tribute to 90-year history of the Bavarian brand. ESTHETIC BMW has been one of the few brands able to produced different bikes, ones that do not follow standards set by the market but dares strange and unusual ways that end up becoming a reference as with their bikes traits of asymmetrical look. The Nine T perfectly conveys the essence of motorcycling as BMW, making classic rounded shapes in a minimalist and modern design where no similarities with other bikes on the market. It is basic motorcycling, a chassis, tank and two wheels, the essential but properly designed to achieve a bike worthy of being in an art gallery.The starting model was undoubtedly the R1200R from which it inherits the engine, drive shaft and brakes. Everything else is new, starting with the tubular chassis for mounting the front fork, seat, tank, lighthouse, forged triple clamps, double side exhaust and spoked wheels. The Nine T looks forward and lightly muscled back, the boxer engine stands on both sides without any protection and the seat has the ability to convert a single-seater removing part of the sub frame and integrating a breadstick available as an accessory. The BMW Nine T is a neoclassical design for those seeking more benefits or modern lines, a bike with personality, capable of generating great emotions.The propeller R1200X Nine T is the Boxer 1170 cc air-cooled oil, proven reliability that produces 110 hp at 7750 rpm. Nine T in raw acceleration on the top speed, so the relationship has been modified compared to the R1200R, leaving identical to R1200GS. On the Move The BMW R1200X Nine T is a bike that should be in an exhibition room as a decorative element. Not because it is not capable of conveying great feelings, however, because although the German brand has accustomed us to very powerful, metered and safe bikes, the Nine T is different. Mounts the same engine but does not carry the R1200R traction control, power maps, stability control or any other technology helps to limit benefits or facilitates driving in addition to the standard ABS. Therefore, the 110 hp two-cylinder are ready to leave when opening the throttle, ready to take orders from its pilot. Start giving feels the opposite movement of the cylinders and the characteristic purr boxer engine with two side exhaust is accentuated sounds. the operation of the box in the Nine T the usual "clack" sound virtually the first speed when operating highlights. The acceleration is brutal, and shifting gears are felt through the movement in the rear axle which makes it clear that we are on a motorcycle that likes to play seriously. The driving position inspired by the bikes of the decades of the 60s and 70s style Cafe Racer, is comfortable, not for long trips or days duets so that bending of the legs and tilting the torso forward, that accuse a high fatigue after long hours, for the use of the Nine T is correct. The brake system comprised of two discs 320 mm forward and one back 265mm, safely stop assembly supported Motorrad ABS system. They are metered, good touch and excellent mordant.The BMW R1200X Nine T is pure motorcycling, a powerful engine in a lightweight package, which ensures the best emotions on board for anyone who enjoys being in control.
