Both the BMWs are powered by a 1,170 cc, air/oil-cooled boxer engine that churns out 110 hp at 7,000 RPM and 115 Nm at 6,500 RPM.

But while the R 12 features a steel tank based on the 1970s BMW /5 models, the R 12 nineT showcases an aluminium tank with brushed side panels. Both the models get full-LED lighting, an adaptive LED headlight and advanced tech like traction control, cornering ABS, keyless ignition, engine braking control and a tyre pressure monitoring system.
