The BMW R 12 nineT is equipped with "Rain," "Road," and "Dynamic" riding modes as standard, while the new R 12 introduces "Roll" and "Rock" modes for personalised riding preferences.

Both motorcycles prioritise safety and comfort with Dynamic Traction Control (DTC) for enhanced acceleration stability. They also feature engine drag torque control and Tyre Pressure Control as standard. The adaptive Headlight Pro system enhances nighttime visibility for safer rides.

For braking, both models include twin disc brakes on the front wheel with radially mounted four-piston monobloc brake callipers, complemented by a single disc brake on the rear wheel. ABS Pro ensures safer braking performance, especially during cornering manoeuvres.
