Skip the New BMW R Nine T, Save $10,000, Get the Classic Instead

If you’re more interested in classic style and prefer the analog way of life, there’s a 1978 BMW R80/7 ready for a new home.


The vintage-inspired style is running rampant in the motorcycle industry, to the point where nearly every major manufacturer offers a modern redux of one of its classics. And who can blame them? Design language and elements plucked from the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s applied to modern machinery is not only refreshing, but it also tends to look incredibly beautiful in almost every example. The BMW R Nine T is no exception. However, at $15,500, the modern tech wrapped in classic style comes at a serious price.

If you’re more interested in the style of the era, prefer the analog way of life and could do without all the computers, this is a 1978 BMW R80/7 that’s ready for a new home. Not only do you get the vintage design the market has an insatiable craving for right now, but you can also have it for a fraction of the price of a new BMW two-wheeler since this R80/7 is currently going for $4,450. There are only 29,000 miles on the clock, and the whole bike received a mechanical and cosmetic refresh back in 2009. Saving money has never looked so damn good.
