2020 BMW R nineT Pure Buyer's Guide: Specs & Price

It’s back to basics with the 2020 BMW R nineT Pure. That minimalist attitude has allowed BMW to bring the R nineT Pure to the showroom floor for less than $10k.

The R nineT Pure is aimed at two riders—those who want a basic motorcycle at an attractive price, and those who intend to do serious customization and don’t want to pay for parts they are going to be removing.

2020 BMW R nineT Pure Specs

Although it’s Pure, this motorcycle still has plenty of features. It has the same 1170cc boxer twin as the other nineT models, and that means 110 horsepower and 86 ft/lbs of torque on call. There are twin discs up front, and the braking is watched over BMW Motorrad ABS, which is standard. The Pure also has traction control as a standard feature.

The 2020 BMW R nineT Pure also brings you into BMW Motorrad’s Option 719 system, which allows for a wide range of customization without stepping outside of your favorite dealership.
