The Thrilling 2018 R Nine T Racer


Manhattan, Queens, and the Bronx are New York City boroughs with busy, crowded streets. Therefore, it might be more beneficial to get from point a to point b in a motorcycle.

One worthwhile option is the 2018 R Nine T Racer. This fun-to-drive bike is great for the city streets or long stretches of highway. But to help decide if it’s right for you, you’ll first need to learn more about it.

That’s why our team at BMW of Manhattan Motorrad created this 2018 R Nine T Racer review. Read all about this bike below, and don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Stylish Exterior

The BMW R Nine T Racer takes its style cues from motorsport bikes of the 1970s. Elongated proportions extend throughout the entire design. Plus, the distinct half-shell fairing, tank, and seat all shape the slim silhouette.

There’s a long wheelbase and low-slung handlebars that are positioned far to the front. These give the driver a low, sporty seating position. Those, combined with the high-set, far back footrests, means you can lean into an aggressive riding position.

And when you’re in that seating position, you’ll notice the speedometer and rev counter. These have a round instrument design with a classic look and feel that are easy to read.

But what probably stands out most with this bike is the bright white body color. It’s a stark contrast to the dark driving parts (like the cast alloy wheels), and is quite eye-catching on the road.

Performance Specs

The 2018 R Nine T Racer is equipped with a 1,170 cc twin-cylinder boxer engine with a balance shaft, four valves per cylinder, and double overhead camshaft. It also puts out 110 horsepower and 86 lb-ft of torque.

This engine delivers highly dynamic power, even at low speeds. Plus, the motorcycle comes standard with an Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and Automatic Stability Control (ASC). Together, they help keep your ride under control, and will even reduce uncontrolled spin of the rear wheel. This is especially useful when driving on wet or bumpy surfaces.

A Comfortable Ride

The R Nine T Racer has many features that contribute to its comfortable riding experience. The handlebars are positioned low on the upper fork bridge. This helps protect the wrists.

As mentioned above, the footrests are more backwards and upwards, letting you sit nice and low. There’s also an available custom rider’s seat, which lowers the seat height from 31.7 inches to 31.2 inches.

The rider’s seat cushion is slightly raised at the rear, as well. This provides noticeable back relief on long rides.

Test Drive the 2018 R Nine T Racer

The 2018 BMW R Nine T Racer is no doubt an impressive motorcycle. With a stylish design, dynamic performance, and comfortable ride, it’s worthy enough for any driver near Manhattan, Queens, and the Bronx.

If you want to experience this bike for yourself, then get your motorcycle license handy, and schedule a test drive at BMW of Manhattan Motorrad.
