BMW Motorcycles celebrates 90 years on the road with a look at past and future models.
Among the highlights at the birthday event was the world premiere of the R Nine T. The neo-retro roadster has a simple and timeless design. It’s all thrills and few frills and basic instruments. The air-cooled 1.2-liter two-cylinder boxer engine puts out 81 kW and 120 Nm of torque. The birthday party included other milestones from the past, however, such as the BMW R 90 S. This was the first motorbike in BMW history to involve a designer in its evolution. The racing version went on to win the first ever superbike event.
