BWM RnineT G/S

Post by Dave » Sat Jun 17, 2017 8:11 am

Got a new RnineT G/S as a loan bike yesterday.
Nice to look at, nice to listen to, nice to ride.

For me, being picky, the single dial looks great and is easier to read the speed than the art deco display of my original RnineT, but I do miss the rev counter
The Yamaha retro bike has a single dial, but they managed to incorporate a rev counter.

Wheels and tyres...looks great.

There I a button to switch off the ABS on the move.
I don't know about switching off the traction control, but it did kickin a couple of times, probally due to the TKC80s not coping with my rubbish riding :biggrin2 :biggrin2

I very much enjoyed the ride. Copes at 59 mph with no issues, even corners...in the dry.

The front end...again feel good on the move, but when I got my original one back, that was so much better.
Might be the rubber, might be the suspension.

I do like the look of the black forks and the tyres :biggrin2 :biggrin2

And for legal speeds they are more than capable :2up
