To celebrate the brand’s 100-year history, SMC Asia Car Distributors Corp., the official importer and distributor of BMW Motorrad in the Philippines, has officially launched the R nineT Roadster 100 Years Edition. In keeping with the year in which BMW Motorrad was founded, the model is limited to 1,923 units globally.
The reduced design language of the R nineT is shaped by 100 years of motorcycle construction and BMW Motorrad’s unbroken passion for the boxer engine. Classic roadster design skilfully sets the scene with a compact tank and upright seating position as well as high-quality materials and stylish design elements.
The new R nineT 100 Years becomes an exclusive anniversary edition thanks to numerous other special features. The heart is still the air/oil-cooled two-cylinder boxer engine. Drawing 109 hp from its 1,170 cc displacement, it pulls through the speed range briskly thanks to its flattened power and torque curves between 4,000 and 6,000 rpm. In the anniversary edition, the legendary engine is accompanied by a wide range of standard equipment and an elaborate surface concept.
Paint finishes in combination with chrome surfaces also have an almost 100-year tradition in motorcycle construction. Chrome surfaces, usually consisting of a copper, nickel, and final chrome layer are characterized by their hardness and resulting high durability, very good protection against corrosion, but above all by a radiant, mirror-like shine. This made chrome a common stylistic device for designers from the late 1920s onwards, in combination with high-quality paint concepts, evidenced by the BMW R 75/5 with chrome-plated tank sides and side covers, for example, is legendary at BMW Motorrad. With the new BMW R nineT 100 Years and the Classic Chrome surface concept, BMW Motorrad is reviving this incomparably sophisticated interplay of paint and chrome.
The tank is a combination of black with chrome and white double lining and is complemented by knee pads and a 100 Years badge. Classic chrome is also found on the seat hump. The front wheel cover is also painted in black and features white double lining. The seat bench in a two-tone combination of black/oxblood rounds off the high-quality look.
Numerous black components such as fork tubes, air intake snorkel, and some Option 719 components complement this harmoniously. The R nineT 100 Years includes the Option 719 Classic wheels option with black anodized rim rings, the Option 719 Shadow milled parts package with milled cylinder head covers, engine housing covers, seat holders, oil filler plug, and the Option 719 Shadow II milled parts package, consisting of adjustable hand levers and a footrest system, pillion footrests as well as expansion tank covers and handlebar end mirrors. The adaptive turning light and the Comfort Package with heated grips, cruise control, and Driving Modes Pro complete the extensive equipment of the edition model.
The BMW R nineT 100 Years Edition retails for P1,795,000. Every purchase of this model also includes a 5-year BMW factory warranty.
