Exploring new avenues, the BMW R nineT Scrambler revives the Scrambler era in a very unique way and still remains true to the well-loved classic. This bike was reduced to its bare essentials such as the air-cooled boxer engine at the centre of the slim construction, the classic round headlight, large tank, short seat, larger front wheel, tyres with deeper treads and an elevated exhaust pipe. This skilful minimalism is set off by deliberate details, each of which expressing aesthetics and craftsmanship. The high material quality and its immaculate finish bespeak the claim to premium quality made by BMW Motorrad. Highlights of the new BMW R nineT Scrambler: • Purist design. • Classic colour concept. • Stitched seat in patinised leather look. • Workmanship with great attention to detail. • Air/oil-cooled 2-cylinder boxer engine with a capacity of 1170 cc. Output 81 kW (110 hp) at 7 750 rpm, maximum torque of 116 Nm at 6 000 rpm. • Designed to be customised. • Modular frame concept with removable passenger frame offering a range of variations. • Classic wheel suspension by means of telescopic fork at front and Paralever at rear. • Large 19-inch front wheel as is typical of a Scrambler. • Upright seating position in classic Scrambler style.
