Unveiling the 2024 BMW R 12 nineT and R 12: Embodying the Spirit of Riding Freedom


Hey petrolheads, buckle up because the BMW Motorrad Heritage world has just raised the bar with the new 2024 BMW R 12 nineT and R 12.

These bad boys are not just motorcycles; they are a celebration of the “Spirit of nineT,” seamlessly following the footsteps of the iconic R nineT and taking classic roadsters and cruisers to a whole new level.

Classic Design Meets Modern Innovation

From the streets to the country roads, the R 12 nineT is the epitome of style, designed to make heads turn in urban environments while delivering dynamic riding fun on winding paths. On the other hand, the R 12 embodies “The Spirit of Easy,” promising cool and relaxed biking with its classic cruiser vibe.

Boxer Engine Awesomeness

Under the hood, or should I say under the seat, the authentic and beefy boxer engine roars to life. With 80 kW (109 hp) for the R 12 nineT and 70 kW (95 hp) for the R 12, these machines pack a punch.

The redesigned airbox and twin-flow rear silencer add that extra touch of class, making sure you get both performance and style.

Redefining the Frame

The R 12 models boast a new one-piece tubular bridge steel spaceframe, shedding weight and giving them a cleaner, classic appearance. The rear frame, bolted on, completes the picture, ensuring a sturdy and stylish ride.

Cutting-Edge Tech with a Classic Twist

The cockpit of the R 12 nineT features classic round instruments, a USB-C port, and a 12V socket, bringing a touch of modernity to the timeless design. Want more? Opt for the digital display as optional equipment for that extra tech flair.

A Design for Every Rider

Whether you lean towards the roadster or cruiser style, BMW has you covered. The R 12 nineT’s aluminum tank and dynamic lines scream roadster, while the R 12’s classic teardrop shape and steel tank pay homage to cruiser aesthetics. Three attractive color options for each bike ensure you ride in style.

Unleash Your Riding Spirit

From powerful LED light units to adaptive Headlight Pro, standard riding modes, and Dynamic Traction Control, the new R 12 models are not just about looks; they are about unleashing your riding spirit. Customize to your heart’s content with genuine BMW Motorrad accessories, and let the road be your canvas.


In a world of motorcycles, the 2024 BMW R 12 nineT and R 12 stand out as a testament to BMW’s commitment to blending classic design with modern innovation.

These machines are not just bikes; they are a lifestyle, an embodiment of freedom on two wheels.
