As part of the Euro-V upgrade, the engine gets upgraded air and oil coolers, a new cylinder head and a new turbulence system that aids in combustion.

As standard, features on the R Nine T include cornering ABS, traction control and dynamic brake control. It also gets Rain and Road mode. Additional money will also get you drag torque control and an additional riding mode. On the Standard and Pure this is Dyna and the Scrambler and Urban get Dirt mode, for obvious reasons. Additionally, an optional comfort package can also be chosen for both riding modes, cruise control and heated grips.
