Today, we’re shifting gears to talk about something that’s causing a stir in the motorcycling world – the unveiling of the 2024 BMW R12 and R12 9T. These aren’t just motorcycles; they’re a testament to BMW’s commitment to blending classic elegance with cutting-edge technology.
The Heart of the Beasts:
At the core of both the R12 and R12 9T lies a marvel of engineering – a new 1,170 cc air and oil-cooled boxer engine. This powerhouse is not just about raw performance; it’s about delivering a smooth, exhilarating ride. The R12 boasts 95 horsepower and 81 lb-ft of torque, offering a ride that’s as graceful as it is thrilling. The R12 9T, on the other hand, ramps up the excitement with 109 horsepower and 85 lb-ft of torque, ensuring a dynamic and responsive riding experience.
Design and Style:
BMW’s attention to detail is evident in every aspect of these bikes. The frame, a robust steel trellis bridge design with a bolt-on rear subframe, is both sturdy and aesthetically pleasing. The suspension system, featuring an upside-down 45 mm telescopic front fork and an aluminum paralever swingarm, promises a ride that’s both comfortable and controlled.
Braking and Control:
With great power comes the need for reliable control. The braking system on these bikes is top-notch, featuring radially mounted four-piston calipers and 310 mm discs at the front, and a two-piston caliper with a 265 mm disc at the rear. This setup ensures that riders have the stopping power they need, when they need it.
A Nod to Elegance and Technology:
The R12 and R12 9T are not just about performance; they’re also about making a statement. The R12’s 19-inch front and 16-inch rear wheel setup exudes a classic vibe, while the R12 9T’s 17-inch wheels at both ends scream modern sophistication. The gauges on these bikes are a blend of functionality and style, with the R12 featuring a simple yet elegant round gauge speedometer and the R12 9T boasting a more tech-forward double round gauge setup.
Ride Modes and Features:
Both models come equipped with ride modes tailored to different riding preferences. The R12 9T features ‘Rain’, ‘Road’, and ‘Dynamic’ modes, while the R12 offers unique ‘Rock’ and ‘Roll’ modes. Additionally, these bikes are packed with features like keyless ride, USB-C and 12V sockets, LED lighting, and BMW’s intelligent emergency call feature.
Color Options and Personalization:
BMW offers these models in a range of color options, each exuding its own unique charm. From the R12’s blackstorm metallic to the R12 9T’s San Remo green metallic, there’s a style for every rider. And with a host of optional features available, riders can personalize their bikes to match their individual tastes.
The 2024 BMW R12 and R12 9T are more than just motorcycles; they’re a celebration of the joy of riding. They encapsulate the thrill of the open road and the spirit of adventure. As we await more details on pricing and availability, let’s dream of the journeys and stories these bikes will be a part of.
