BMW shows off R nineT 100 Years edition at the Makina Moto Show

Back in December of last year, BMW Motorrad announced the special R 18 and R nineT 100 Years edition. Both models will be limited to 1,923 units only, to commemorate the year when the first mass-production BMW motorcycle was produced: the R 32.

Today at the Makina Moto Show, it’s finally here in the flesh.

BMW R nineT 100 Years

The reduced design language of the R nineT is shaped by 100 years of motorcycle construction and BMW Motorrad's unbroken passion for the boxer engine. Classic roadster design skilfully sets the scene with a compact tank and upright seating position as well as high-quality materials and stylish design elements. The new R nineT 100 Years becomes an exclusive anniversary edition thanks to numerous other special features. The heart is still the air/oil-cooled, 80 kW (109 hp) two-cylinder boxer engine. In the anniversary edition, the legendary engine is accompanied by a wide range of options and an elaborate surface concept.
