The Sport-Touring Tires for German Retro

BMW and Continental go hand in hand on some of the Bavarian brand’s models. The R nineT Pure is one of them. The most economical challenge-style bike of the nineT family carries the ContiRoad as standard, a compound that maintains the bases of its predecessor, the ContiRoadAttack 2 EVO, but considerably improving its wet grip.

The BMW R nineT Pure 2023 stands out for its retro-style, but also for its 1,170 cc, four-stroke, air/oil-cooled boxer engine, which has been adapted to Euro 5 regulations. Its maximum power output is 107 hp (80 kW) at 7250 rpm, with a torque of 116 Nm at 6000 rpm.

This motorcycle is the most affordable model of the nineT family (from $10,995). All the option that are seen on their siblings in the nineT range have been reduced to a minimum, while emphasizing its retro look, hence its name ‘Pure’. A model widely used by builders to make all kinds of transformations with its chassis and engine. The result: a simple and beautiful bike, but powerful and with character.

ContiRoad, tires up to BMW standards

This retro bike with so much character is fitted with Continental ContiRoad tires as standard. A tire that stands out for its great grip, even in wet or rainy conditions. In addition, it has the best of the ContiRoadAttack 3, both its handling and great mileage.

This compound features three of the most cutting-edge technologies: ZeroDegree, with a stiffer and lighter structure that helps improve riding precision and handling; RainGrip, which provides more grip in the wet, also increasing mileage; and Performance over Time to get the tire to the end of its life without reducing its performance.

A tire that makes it easier to maneuver the BMW R nineT Pure and its 491 lbs. Its grip will make the German motorcycle safe to ride through any type of curve. Moreover, if we add to its grip the bike’s “Dynamic” mode, which makes riding on dry asphalt more dynamic, the experience is very satisfying. The BMW R nineT Pure and the ContiRoad are the perfect combination of style and fun.
