But this is a modern-day R nineT too, which means an air-cooled 1.170cc boxer twin spitting out a claimed 110 hp, a universal shaft drive, and that unique steel tubular space frame in a modular structure, made up of three components: a main front section, a rear section with integrated end piece, and a passenger frame. Because you can remove the passenger frame, the R nineT /5 practically begs you to change the look and character of the boxer to your personal whim. It also means you get a classic 43mm telescopic fork (with gaiters, of course) and a Paralever single-sided swingarm with a central spring strut for suspension and damping. Continuing the retro theme are a pair of 17-inch wire-spoke wheels, shod with 120/70ZR-17 rubber up front and 180/55ZR-17 for the back. But the new /5 obliges with modern components too, like dual 320mm brake discs with four-piston brake calipers and standard ABS to slow your roll. Automatic Stability Control and heated grips are also standard.
