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.
