Interesting....

Quote


At the EICMA show last year, BMW Motorrad announced that it would make another air-cooled model, in order to commemorate the 90 years that the German OEM has been producing two-wheelers.

Expected to be the production version of the company’s LoRider concept, we got our first taste of what BMW had in store for us with the BMW Concept Ninety — which had its retro goodness co-developed with America’s own Roland Sands.

Now seemingly ready for a true production model, BMW Motorrad has been caught testing the BMW NineT street bike inside the Lake Garda region in Italy.

Hawt!  BMW has a lot of material to do a retro model, it's a wonder they haven't tapped those roots before.

This bike has now been unveiled -- see links below.  It looks like the rear subframe by the passenger seat is completely removable, which frankly looks a bit extreme.

The bike is also up on the BMW US website, though I did not see a price.  And now it's officially "nineT" with a lower-case "n", which means it's  being marketed to hipsters.

This very well maybe my next bike.

Has there been an annoucement on if this is a limited offering only, and cost?

I need to wait until late 2014/2015.

Are they pointing to the FD oil drain and fill locations on pre-2008 units?

I like it. I do wonder if those wheels require inner tubes.

Good question.  I don't see the use of BMW's tubeless spoke wheels which are use on the GS.  These spoke wheels appear to need the use of tubes.

I bet they are tubeless. Didn't the Duc Sport Classic have tubeless wire wheels?

...a Japanese manufacturer might take the motor, castrate it to about 110 hp and stick it in a cheaper, heavier chassis with low-spec suspension and brakes and slice an ‘R’ or two off the name. That’s not how Aprilia roll

These tires have tubes.  There is a high-rise Akrapovik exhaust option, too.  I think the Akrapovik, knobby tires ala GS Adventure and bar end mirrors are all that would be needed to make this my next bike.  Seriously considering putting down a deposit...
