As discussed on other threads. It seems unlikely that this model range will continue. The R18 will be it’s successor in the line up. Check with your dealer?I’m the proud owner of a R100 Café Racer & in the market for a New 2021 R NineT that I plan to customise. Does anyone have any idea when the 2021 year will be out in showrooms in the UK? Thanks!! F
I think it's extremely unlikely the NineT segment of the heritage line will be "discontinued". They'll just have to update it to meet Euro5. They might be able to sneak by another year on Euro4, I know the motorcycle industry as a whole is petitioning for a delay on Euro5 compliance due to Covid. But in any case, there's no chance BMW is abandoning the segment to let Triumph and Ducati dominate it unchallenged. And I sincerely doubt the R18 is going to be any kind of replacement. That's a completely different platform for a completely different market segment. My best guess is the Camhead engine will continue in some updated/detuned form to meet Euro5 and remain in the heritage line-up.Thanks everyone. I’ve tried to contact a few dealers including Bahnstormers in Maidenhead but no reply. I’m in Morocco at the moment so it’s hard to call. I’ve never heard it will be discontinued. I’m just hesitant to buy a new bike a matter of weeks before the new model year is out even if there is no changes. Has anyone ever tried adding a quick shifter on their R NineT? Up & down?
Anyway, I won’t be back in Surrey until the end of the Summer but willing to put a deposit on a 2021 R NineT. I wrote that in my email to Bahnstormer A week ago but still no reply. F
Very popular Bike, can't see it discontinued
I see them a lot Lawrence, mostly commuting during the week. In fact there's at least 2 I see in my suburb frequently.
We have a lot of bad hips hereabouts in Brisbane, mine included! Which is why the 803mm seat-height is a blessing in terms of easy on and off...Hah I meant I see 2 in my own suburb, then plenty more on my way to the office. There's plenty in Sydney at least. We have a lot of hipsters.
