Engine and Performance

  • BMW R 12: Showcases a steel tank reminiscent of the 1970s BMW /5 models, maintaining the same high-tech lighting and electronic features as the nineT.

Riding Modes and Wheels

The R 12 nineT comes with “Rain,” “Road,” and “Dynamic” riding modes, whereas the R 12 offers “Roll” and “Rock” modes. Both models are equipped with 17-inch wheels, a 45mm USD fork at the front, and a paralever swingarm at the rear. Braking is handled by 310mm discs at the front and a single 265mm rotor at the rear.
