Distinct Spirit

The BMW Motorrad R nineT Scrambler is a motorcycle with a distinct spirit that is purist, reduced to the essentials and non-conformist, combined with the technology and quality of a BMW. With deep-treaded tyres, a raised exhaust and a relaxed seating position, Scramblers offered their riders in the 1950s to 1970s not just motorcycling fun on winding country roads but also great off-road capability and therefore an extended range of use.

Like the motorcycles themselves, the people who rode Scramblers were not bound by established conventions. They could be seen virtually everywhere: on winding country roads, stony mountain passes and – even on sandy beaches. The BMW R nineT Scrambler is a motorcycle that revives the Scrambler era in a special way.

The bike features a classic air-cooled, punchy flat-twin boxer engine, which has stood for hallmark design, powerful torque and a unique sound for more than nine decades. The R nineT Scrambler is fitted with the air/oil-cooled boxer with a capacity of 1170 cc. It delivers an output of 81 kW (110 hp) at 7750 rpm, develops a maximum torque of 116 Nm at 6000 rpm.

The raised exhaust with two vertically arranged rear silencers meets the requirements of a classic Scrambler. It is fitted very close to the body of the bike, thereby reinforcing its generally slim appearance. Producing a sonorous boxer sound, it also adheres to the new noise emission regulations. A large-size catalytic converter ensures even more effective exhaust gas cleaning.

The BMW Scrambler is fitted with light alloy cast wheels. In typical Scrambler style it has a large 19-inch front wheel with tyre sizes of 120/70-19 at the front and 170/60-17 at the rear.

In view of the impressive riding dynamics of the R nineT Scrambler, the brake system – which comes with ABS as standard – is fitted with 4-piston calipers, steel-wrapped brake lines and 320-millimeter brake discs at the front. At the rear, effective deceleration is ensured by a single-disc brake with a diameter of 265 millimeters and a 2-piston floating caliper.

A relaxed upright seating position is one of the key features of a Scrambler. For this reason, the ergonomic triangle of handlebar-seat-footrests has been redefined. With handlebars that are high, slightly reduced seat upholstery and rider footrests that are positioned somewhat lower and further to the rear, the new model gives the rider a relaxed ride feel.

The circular headlamp gives it an expression of freedom, independence and serenity, while the speedometer with analog display features an unelaborate style that very much reflects the classic principles applied to the development of the BMW Scrambler. Eye-catching elements are the painted 17-litre sheet-steel fuel tank and the trim cover made of fine aluminum sheet with embossed R nineT inscription which runs across the air intake duct on the right-hand side.

The new BMW R nineT Scrambler is available in the paint finish Monolith metallic matt. The bike’s classic, purist character is enhanced by black-coated components such as the frame, swinging arm, wheels, fork slider tubes and engine housing.
