R ninet Racer

New-for-2017, the Racer takes the Pure as a ba­sis and adds a half-fair­ing, bul­let pil­lion seat cover, lower bars and cool retro mo­tor­sport paint scheme to cre­ate BMW’S take on a café racer. Pow­ered by the same air- cooled boxer as the rest of the com­pany’s R ninet range, the Racer’s stretched- out rid­ing po­si­tion and high pegs make it a lit­tle un­com­fort­able over dis­tance. That said, it looks and sounds the part and han­dles fan­tas­ti­cally. The S ver­sion adds spoked wheels, heated grips, LED in­di­ca­tors and a chrome ex­haust. Bikes don’t come much more hand­some.
