Of course, BMW didn’t just make the Racer less expensive because they wanted to be a good guy. The design and paint scheme may look premium, but the hard parts on the bike tell a different story. Starting with what keeps you rolling, both the wheels and the suspension are considered lower spec than the OG nineT. That means the 17-inch hoops are now cast, instead of spoked, and the inverted fork has been swapped for a cheaper right-side up one. Add onto this a steel tank instead of an aluminum one, a single seat with no passenger accommodations, a simplified 2-in-1 exhaust, and, well, you can begin to do the math.
