Do you think BMW will up date the R9T engine to the 1200LC engine. Thought please
Hi I was thinking the r1200 LC engine not the r1250 shift cam. Technology has to move forward and will the current R9T engine confirm to euro 6 & 7 in years to come. It would be a shame to loose the R9T rangeI'm afraid the water cooled engine doesn't have as much character so I hope not.
Haven't ridden a shift cam version so maybe that one is ok. Still doesn't really fit the idea of the 9t being a back to basics kinda bike.
Which is the exact reason I wouldn't buy a 'heritage' Triumph........there is just Sooooo much that is fake about them, which would grate on me every time I looked it.they even made the throttle bodies look like old fashioned carburettors.
BMW already make what the OP has asked about, its the unfaired roadster bike with the LC engine and a telescopic fork, but nothing retro about it. I think its just called 1200R, i'm sure someone here knows it.
