R ninet Road­ster

The bike that launched the R ninet range back in 2014 re­mains one of the best ret­ros on the mar­ket. Now known un­of­fi­cially as the Road­ster, this is the high­est-spec­i­fi­ca­tion R ninet model and comes with in­verted forks, ra­dial brakes, spoked wheels and a beau­ti­ful look. When it was launched it blew us all away with its char­ac­ter, per­for­mance and style and nowa­days it is no less im­pres­sive.

R ninet Pure

It would be un­fair to call the Pure the base model R ninet as it is far from ba­sic, but that’s ef­fec­tively what it is. Us­ing con­ven­tional forks and brakes in­stead of the Road­ster’s in­verted and ra­di­als, the Pure has the same engine but is a ‘base for cus­tomi­sa­tion’ ac­cord­ing to BMW. We say it’s a great-look­ing retro with a bar­gain price tag, heaps of soul and plenty of scope for per­son­al­i­sa­tion. The C model adds spoked wheels, heated grips, LED in­di­ca­tors and a chrome ex­haust.
