BMW Motorrad hop on to the Scrambler bandwagon. Enter the new BMW R nineT Scrambler
BMW Motorrad pulled the silks off the R nineT Scrambler at EICMA. Essentially the bike retains the powertrain of the R nineT with the 1,170-cc air-cooled boxer-twin putting out 110 PS at 7,750 RPM and 116 Nm of torque at 6,000 RPM. On the aesthetics front, the minimalistic design can be tweaked to suit one’s taste. To help with this, BMW Motorrad are offering a range of accessories and attachments, for instance, at the rear, a removable section of the sub-frame allows riders to use it for solo as well as pillion riding.
The bike rides on a traditional 19-inch and 17-inch wheels at the front and rear respectively. Braking duties are handled by a 320-mm twin disc set-up at the front and a 265-mm single disc at the rear. ABS is offered as standard equipment. From the looks of it, the R nineT Scrambler is a promising offering. Whether it comes to Indian shores, still remains a question to be answered.
