What if BMW Motorrad decides to give to the MV Agusta Turismo Veloce a run for its money?
The answer is the 9cento, BMW unveiled in the unique Villa D’Este location.
It will take no less than two years to see the production version of the stunning 9cento, the Italian for nine hundred (with reference to the engine displacement). The 9cento prototype is powered by the mid-size parallel twin we know from the F 850 GS but it’s not just the S1000 XR little brother.
The BMW 9cento looks like the perfect blend of 40% fun bike, 40% touring bike, 20% sportsbike.
If the 9cento will (reasonably) look like this even when production ready, it will be definitely worth the waiting.
