BMW R nineT Family Updated In Malaysia

The BMW R nineT family gets expanded in Malaysia.

BMW Motorrad Malaysia has been on quite a product offensive since the automotive sector was allowed to reopen. Recently, the company revealed updated R1250GS, G310 and C400 bikes. They even introduced the new S1000R and BMW M’s M1000RR superbikes to the country. To top the entire model refresh off, they also updated the R nineT family with three updated bikes.

Retuned boxer engine

The 1170cc boxer engine powering the R nineT bikes has undergone a retuning to meet EU-5 regulations on emissions and noise. Power is slightly down from 110hp to 109hp but torque is maintained at 116Nm. In fact, the torque curve has been made more full-bodied between 4,000 and 6,000 rpm.

Cylinder heads, throttle valve parts, and cylinder head covers have all been redesigned. Some elements of the engine redesign are visible from the outside, so there’s an aesthetic element here as well.
