Over the years Tourat­ech has made a name for it­self pro­duc­ing an eclec­tic mix of pro­tec­tive parts, ac­ces­sories and lug­gage for a range of tour­ing and ad­ven­ture mo­tor­cy­cles. In that time, it’s also cre­ated a range of one-off tricked out ma­chines to show­case just what can be achieved with its gear. But now it seems like it’s go­ing one step fur­ther, pro­duc­ing a lim­ited run of its all-new RX9 en­duro ma­chine – which has been built from the bones of BMW’s R nineT.

Of those re­li­able and cus­tomis­able un­der­pin­nings, the RX9 makes use of the base bike’s air and oil-cooled 1200cc BMW boxer en­gine – which has been tuned to of­fer bet­ter traction at low speeds. Chas­sis-wise, there’s some top qual­ity com­po­nents on of­fer too. It comes with up­side-down forks up front, with closed car­tridges from TT Sus­pen­sion re­plac­ing the orig­i­nal in­sides. Best of all, the spring preload, damp­ing of the traction and com­pres­sion phase are all ad­justable. The rear unit from Tourat­ech Sus­pen­sion also comes with the same set­ting op­tions. There’s 21in and 18in wheels at the front and rear re­spec­tively – with high-strength alu­minium rims made by Haan Wheels. That’s not all: there’s a Sin­ter clutch made by ZF Race En­gi­neer­ing, a Stealth-type si­lencer from AC Sch­nitzer, a 7in di­am­e­ter LED head­light from Speaker, Magura han­dle­bars, fold­able hand levers which are pro­tected by ro­bust guards, a slim­line sports seat, and a Mo­to­scope Pro in­stru­ment panel. Each RX9 will be built by hand at Tourat­ech’s fac­tory. Dur­ing a two-day han­dover work­shop the cus­tomer will get in­ten­sive in­struc­tions for the ad­just­ments of the sports sus­pen­sion as well as one-to-one off-road train­ing – but if you want to get your hands on one, you’d bet­ter not hang about be­cause the R9X is be­ing pro­duced in an ex­clu­sive small se­ries. We’ve not heard any­thing yet about pric­ing, but if you’re af­ter more in­for­ma­tion, visit: www.tourat­ech.de/R9X
