BMW Motorrad Malaysia Introduces Limited 100th Year Edition Of BMW R nineT
BMW Motorrad Malaysia has introduced the BMW R nineT 100 Years as tribute to the founding year of BMW Motorrad. Worldwide, this special R nineT is limited to only 1,923 units, and only 10 units have been made available for Malaysia.
The BMW R nineT 100 Years’ reduced design language features a compact tank and an upright seating position. As homage to the 100-year history and tradition of BMW Motorrad, which is tied to the legendary Boxer engine, the exclusive centennial edition of the classic roadster is characterised by numerous special features alongside an elaborate surface concept.
The Black Storm metallic paintwork on the chrome-plated tank is a special feature of the 100 Years edition, as the traditional paint-on-chrome method is a tribute to the 1969 R 75/5. The R nineT 100 Years also revives the almost 100-year-old tradition of combining paint finishes and chrome surfaces with the Classic Chrome surface concept. More than just being stylish, the chrome surfaces are distinguished by their hardness, resulting in high durability thus providing good protection against corrosion besides giving off a radiant, mirror-like shine.
On the BMW R nineT 100 Years, the mix of paint and chrome is represented by a combination of black with chrome and white double-lining on the tank, complemented by tank grips and a “100 Years” badge. The classic chrome finish is also found on the surface of the rear seat cover, while the front fender is painted in black and features white double lining. Rounding off the high quality look is the two-tone black / oxblood combination used on the seat. Further complementing the look are numerous black components such as the fork tubes and air intake snorkel.
“A design icon of its era, the BMW R nineT has paved the way for stylish yet powerful roadsters that paint pure passion for SoulFuel over the years. The BMW R nineT encapsulates the great roadster tradition of BMW Motorrad in a particularly refined and sophisticated manner, culminating 100 years of motorcycle construction and a persevering passion for the Boxer engine,” said Hans de Visser, Managing Director of BMW Group Malaysia.
“As we celebrate 100 Years of BMW Motorrad this year, we are thrilled to present ten exclusive units of the new BMW R nineT 100 Years for our passionate community of riders in Malaysia. The iconic BMW R nineT has always been a model for absolute aficionados and conveys a feeling of nostalgia, representing SoulFuel in its most exclusive form,” de Visser added.
The BMW R nineT 100 Years uses the legendary 1,170 cc air / oil-cooled flat twin 4-stroke Boxer engine which is capable of generating 80 kW (109 hp) and 116 Nm of torque. For reliable braking to match, the R nineT 100 Years has twin-disc brakes with 4-piston callipers for the front, and a single-disc brake with double-piston floating callipers at the rear. For greater riding safety, the latest generation of BMW Motorrad ABS Pro also comes as a standard feature.
Standard equipment for the BMW R nineT 100 Years include LED headlights with daytime riding light, dual speed indicator and rational-speed sensor instruments with on-board computer content, Automatic Stability Control (ASC), Riding Modes Rain & Road, drive train and final drive in black finish, rear suspension with fully adjustable spring preload by handwheel complemented with adjustable rebound-stage damping for ultimate adjustability and fully adjustable upside-down telescopic front forks (spring preload, compression stage rebound).
