The engine not just meets the latest emission regulations but have been updated with minor changes

The R NineT is the last remaining bike in BMW Motorrad’s range to use the old air-cooled, 1170 cc boxer twin engine, and it gives out a clean look to the retro-styled model without the sleek lines disturbed by radiators of a liquid-cooled powerplant. The engine now gets new cylinder heads, part of the changes which come with compliance to Euro 5, as well as new throttle valves. The heads are new, and sport a new cooling fin layout and redesigned head covers. The engine also uses a new turbulence system which helps the air-fuel mixture to be more efficient and aid in cleaner combustion.
