BMW R nine T family gained two new members last year.
BMW Motorrad has introduced finely customised machined parts for the R nine T family. Produced in high-quality aluminium, their extravagant design is mainly intended to lend expression to an individual passion for fine, premium-grade motorcycle technology.
Made by Roland Sands Design from California, these machined parts for BMW R nine T use a special manufacturing technique which ensures a surface quality with attractive contrasts between glossy black and aluminium. The parts are initially made from an aluminium forging blank using a CNC-controlled machine tool after which, they undergo elaborate hand-polishing. This is followed by an application of a black coating.
Selected areas are then milled once more so that the original distinctive aluminium surface becomes visible again. Available machined parts for the BMW R nine T include
- Cylinder head covers Machined
- Oil filler neck lid Machined
- Belt cover Machined
- Headlight cover Machined
- Handlebar end cover Machined
- Rear axle cover Machined
- Bevel gear bearing cover Machined
- Swinging-arm pivot mount cover Machined
The Original BMW Motorrad Accessories design program also offers some fine-quality customising parts that allow the members of the R nineT family to make their bike stand out from the crowd an aluminium fuel tank produced by hand in boutique manufacturing quality according to rigorous BMW quality standards.
Manual brushing gives each tank an entirely unique surface structure which permanently underscores the classic, refined appearance of the R nineT, R nine T Pure and the R nineT Scrambler.
BMW R nine T uses an air-cooled Boxer engine with a displacement of 1,170 cc.
