BMW Motorrad has unveiled the
BMW R nineT Scrambler, a motorcycle which revives the Scrambler era in a
special way. The new BMW Motorrad Scrambler 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 1 170 cc. It delivers an output of 110 hp at 7750 rpm,
develops a maximum torque of 116 Nm at 6000 rpm and, with the new engine
mapping and a fuel system including carbon canister, meets the requirements of
the EU4 pollutant class.
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 regulation ECE R41-04. A large-size catalytic
converter ensures even more effective exhaust gas cleaning.
The motorcycle has traditional
suspension technology with 19-inch front wheel and a wide range of potential
variations. Similar to the R nineT
Roadster, the frame concept is a key aspect in terms of the Scrambler's
extensive customisation capacity. The specially developed steel tubular space
frame integrates the boxer engine as a load-bearing element and consists of a
front section with integrated steering head and a rear section with swinging
The passenger frame can be
dismounted, thereby allowing the R nineT Scrambler to be used either by two
people or - for a particularly stylish appearance - by the rider on their own.
In line with the bike’s active riding character, the suspension geometry of the
R nineT Scrambler is mainly geared towards sound handling and a neutral
cornering response - in other words lots of riding fun on winding country
In good Scrambler style, front
wheel suspension is in the form of a telescopic fork with rubber gaiters and a
spring travel of 125 millimetres. Rear wheel suspension is taken care of by a
Paralever single-sided swinging arm as used in the other boxer models.
Suspension and damping are carried out via a central spring strut. The spring
travel is 140 millimetres.
The new 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 brake system - which comes
with ABS as standard - is fitted with 4-piston calipers, steel-wrapped brake
lines and 320-millimetre brake discs at the front. At the rear, effective
deceleration is ensured by a single-disc brake with a diameter of 265
millimetres 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 higher as compared to the R nineT, 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.
