BMW Motorrad has ushered in a new era in its motorcycle line with the introduction of the R 12 nineT and R 12.  These models represent harmony between traditional motorcycle construction and pioneering technology, with the focus on an individual riding experience.

The philosophy of the models

The R 12 nineT follows the philosophy of “The Spirit of nineT”, which is based on the values of the original R nineT: a timeless design, an emphasis on craftsmanship and flexibility in customizing.  The R 12, on the other hand, embodies “The Spirit of Easy” and focuses on the classic characteristics of a cruiser: serenity, style and comfort.

 

Design: The symbiosis of past and future

Both motorcycles combine the iconic boxer engine and the design language of historic motorcycle eras with state-of-the-art technology.  The minimalist yet detailed design is both emotionally appealing and functional.

 

The boxer engine: a centerpiece with history

The characteristic boxer engine, a trademark of BMW motorcycles for a century, can be found in both models.  The 1,170 cm3 air/oil-cooled engine achieves 80 kW (109 hp) in the R 12 nineT and 70 kW (95 hp) in the R 12.  The redesign of the airbox and the twin-flow rear silencer underline the classic yet sporty riding experience.

 

Frame design: innovation meets tradition

At the heart of the R 12 models is a newly developed one-piece steel lattice tube bridge frame.  This frame enables a more classic design and at the same time offers a reduction in weight.  The rear frame, also made of steel, blends harmoniously into the overall appearance.

 

Instrumentation and connectivity

Equipped with analog round instruments, the motorcycles offer a balance between tradition and modernity.  Modern connections such as USB-C and a 12 V socket are integrated as standard, and an optional digital display offers extended functionalities.

 

Ergonomics and style: the differences between roadster and cruiser

The R 12 nineT features an aluminium tank and a dynamic silhouette that offers optimized ergonomics.  The R 12, on the other hand, has a classic teardrop-shaped steel tank which, together with the solo seat and the rear wheel cover, creates a design typical of a cruiser.

 

Color design and individuality

Three different color variants for each model offer scope for individual preferences and underline the characteristics of the motorcycles – from classic black to exclusive special colors.

 

Technical features and individual customizations

In addition to the powerful braking systems and riding modes, the models offer functions such as Dynamic Traction Control and adaptive cornering lights.  Extensive customizing options are also available, making it possible to adapt the motorcycles to individual requirements.

 

Conclusion

The new BMW R 12 nineT and R 12 are a symbol of the fusion of traditional motorcycle design and state-of-the-art technology.  They offer a riding experience that takes both historical values and modern requirements into account while leaving room for personalization.
