The BMW R nineT has finally received its BS6 update. The less polluting version of the motorcycle has been launched in India. Apart from the cleaner engine, BMW Motorrad has also added a few new features to the new, more eco-friendly model.
BS6 BMW R nineT Specs
Powering the new BMW R nineT is a familiar 1170cc boxer engine that now complies with the stricter and more stringent Bharat Stage 6 emission norms. To make that happen, the German company has implemented some changes to the powerplant. The air/oil-cooled motor now features a new cylinder head to ensure even better combustion and, thus, cleaner emissions. BMW Motorrad has also added new cylinder head covers for enhanced visual appeal.
