Has BMW completely nailed the modern rider's desires with their new R nineT? The sales figures certainly suggest so. It's fun, fast, handles, looks good, has character, is easy to customise, and doesn't cost upwards of £12,000. But does it do it for you?

Moto Guzzi Griso?

Should add the 8 valve 'Moto Guzzi Griso' to that!

Note to MCN

 

Hi MCN, You may not want to bother with 3-way surveys in this case?  All you do is to dilute the message and muddy the results of the survey.  Meaning you end up with a confusing, non-coherent report which doesn't help anyone at the end.

If you are doing research for your mag and also for the OE's the best way to gain the most direct, clear and revealing result in the case of favorability of a certain new model is to simply ask a yes or no question.  Meaning you like it or not. 

When you ask the question "I'd have one, but not right now," that's just a nice way of saying I don't care for this bike. 

Basically as I write this, this bike has a 56% favorable and 44% unfavorable result.  That's what counts.  Cheers,

It's a lardy, hilariously expensive parts-bin special

The only bike it'll takes sales from is the R1200GS, as a few accountants and HR managers reckon they'll look even more boss on the 5 sunny Sundays that they actually ride it each year.

Looks a bit sort of "Norton 961 meets Diavel while porking a Ural Dnieper" to me, but then the internal wiring in my head's not what it used to be. Can you get leg shields for it,  like on a Honda 90? Needs a top box as well.

How much

 I like the concept but you could get two Kevils customs for the price of one of these. I know where my money would go.

You know

 it will be well put together and engineerd but like ruxxy says you get a custom flat tracker type of bike on ebay for half the price and stand out in a car park like a cock in a convent.

Too expensive

 I dont mind the look of it but £12K! its way too expensive especially for a bike with an engine thats been around for quite a few years now and its still really a second bike. If it was 7-8k then its on the money but that price from BMW no way!!

Price

It's not a commuter, it's not a touring bike, it's not an all out sports bike, it's a bike for a weekend that's why the price is high, because the 'weekend' only market is small and not mainstream. I saw this bike at the nec show last year and it really is a cracker but for daily use in the uk it's a no.
