By CARSIFU | 8 May 2017

The second BMW Motorrad Nightfuel event, held at Jalan Riong, Bangsar recently, saw over 400 motorcyclists celebrating camaraderie, food, music and premium motorcycles.

The event also unveiled the new variants of the BMW Motorrad Heritage world of experience - the new BMW R nineT, BMW R nineT Racer and BMW R nineT Pure.

Prices (exclude on-the-road costs and inclusive of GST) are RM101,900 (BMW R nineT); RM88,900 (BMW R nineT Racer) and RM82,900 (BMW R nineT Pure).

Created for the ‘pure riding’ motorcycle enthusiast, the new BMW Motorrad variants represent the ideas of customising and styling of motorcycles to make it their own.

“Make Life a Ride represents all the values of the BMW Motorrad brand, which strives to illustrate a more lifestyle and active attitude towards motorcycle riding,” said BMW Motorrad Malaysia head Owen Riley.

The updated BMW R nineT neatly sums up the company’s illustrious past with a unique concept of pure riding pleasure with a classic, minimalist design.

The new BMW R nineT Pure, which is the roadster reduced to the essentials, and the BMW R nineT Racer, which is the classic, old-school half-faired sports motorcycle, are both concepts that were popular in the 1960s and 1970s.

The new BMW Heritage models feature the potent, air/oil-cooled boxer engine with a capacity of 1,170cc and an output of 110hp and a maximum torque of 116Nm, combined with a 6-speed transmission.
