2021 BMW R NineT Models Updated for Euro 5

by | Oct 23, 2020 | BMW, motoGP News

BMW revealed its 2021 R NineT line-up, with an updated engine to meet Euro 5 requirements, a new rear shock and a new range of Option 719 customization components. For 2021, the line will consist of four models: the R NineT, R NineT Pure, R NineT Scrambler and R NineT Urban G/S. As we previously reported, the cafe-styled R NineT Racer has been removed from the lineup.

Apart from the updated cylinder head design and new color options, the styling of the 2021 R NineT remains similar to last year’s model.

To meet the more stringent Euro 5 emissions standard, the R NineT’s air- and oil-cooled 1170cc Boxer receives a new cylinder head with new covers, new throttle valves and a new turbulence system which helps to swirl the air-fuel mixture for more efficient and cleaner combustion. According to BMW, the updated engine claims a peak output of 109 hp at 7250 rpm, down from the previous 110 hp at 7250 rpm. Peak torque remains the same, at a claimed 86 lb-ft. at 6000 rpm, but BMW says the new swirling effect produces a noticeable improvement between 4000 and 6000 rpm.

All four R NineT models receive a new rear suspension with travel-dependent damping (BMW-speak for a progressive shock) and a new hand wheel for adjusting spring preload.

Lean-sensitive ABS Pro is now standard for the R NineT line, as are the new Rain and Road ride modes. Other updates include a new instrument cluster, LED lighting, and a USB charging socket.

BMW also offers a range of “Option 719” accessories including various wheels, milled parts and other styling upgrades for each R NineT model.

2021 BMW R NineT

The standard R NineT comes in Blackstorm metallic with brushed aluminum as well as three Option 719 colorways: Night Black matt/Aluminum matt, Mineral White metallic/Aurum, and Aluminum.

BMW also offers a Riding Modes Pro upgrade which adds a sportier “Dyna” mode, plus dynamic traction control and engine drag torque.

2021 BMW R NineT Pure

The R NineT Pure is also available with the standard model’s Riding Modes Pro. The Pure is available in Mineral Grey Metallic or Teal Blue metallic matt (pictured above), as well as the Option 719 Blackstorm metallic/Racing Red, Option 719 Cosmic Blue metallic/Lightwhite or Option 719 Aluminum.

2021 BMW R NineT Scrambler

The R NineT Scrambler has two standard paint options: Granite Grey metallic matt and Kalamata metallic matt with tape. The Option 719 colors include Blackstorm metallic/Racing Red or the Cosmic Blue metallic/Lightwhite pictured above.

2021 BMW R NineT Urban G/S

The R NineT Urban G/S joins the rest of BMW’s GS models with a 40th anniversary edition black and yellow color scheme honoring the original R 100 GS. The standard Urban G/S comes in Alpine White with tape, and the Option 719 Blackstorm metallic/Racing Red.
