New BMW R nineT Scrambler

When you've read this story, you can click on the image above for a close up peek at BMW's new R nineT Scrambler for 2016 which has just been unveiled. This is a cost-cutting dirtster (can we register that name - Ed?) based upon the current R nineT platform.


The engine is the familiar and highly competent 1,170cc air & oil-cooled Boxer twin pumping out 110bhp at 7,750rpm. Maximum torque kicks in with 85.5lbs-ft @ 6,000rpm. The weight is 484lbs (220kg) which isn't much different from most of the competition, but to us is nevertheless uncomfortably high.


Features include the obligatory high-level exhaust c/w an oversize catalytic converter to help this bike scrape through the Euro4 regulations. A carbon capture system has also been installed to trap any escaping petrol fumes. Wheels are 19-inch front and 17-inch rear (cast and wire wheels are optional).


BMW has been fooling around with finishes in an effort to make cheap (or cheaper) look classy, and mostly they appear to have pulled it off. But you're probably talking about a lot of TLC to maintain the appropriate sheen. A large range of accessories are on the way, which is no surprise at all. And you can have knobblies fitted as standard. Prices will be announced as and when. Don't forget the extra BMW R nineT Scrambler images.
