The R12 nineT:.
The R12 nineT is engineered to continue the legacy of its predecessor, the R nineT. With a 1,170cc air-cooled boxer twin engine, the upcoming model is expected to deliver 107 horsepower at 7,000 rpm and 85 lb.-ft. of torque at 6,500 rpm. These performance metrics closely align with those of the previous model, indicating that BMW is committed to maintaining a successful formula.
