2016 BMW R NineT Scrambler on http://www.Totalmotorcycle.com

Honest. Untamed. Air-cooled...

Feel the wind, lean into every curve and experience the freedom in every mile you ride – the BMW R nineT Scrambler empowers you to do your own thing. Tough, unconventional, and against established standards. Made for true characters who want their bike to be pure and minimalistic.

See, hear, feel.

The unique sound of the R nineT Scrambler is a real attention grabber. The classic 1200 cc boxer engine and its high-positioned dual silencer give the bike a powerful voice.

Compared to the R nineT, the handlebars are placed higher and the comfortable seat is repositioned. This ensures a confident and relaxed seating position for every rider. In combination with the slightly longer spring travel, you'll overcome rough spots with ease.

No limits.

Dual sport tires, a high exhaust system, and a relaxed, upright riding position help the Scrambler keep riding where the pavement ends. The 19-inch front wheel, the analog tachometer, a purist steel tank in monolith metallic matte and other unique details turn the Scrambler into a high-quality classic. And with just a few steps you can give the R nineT Scrambler your own individual touch.

Pure Scrambler. Pure BMW Motorrad. The R nineT Scrambler is at the highest level in matters of safety, reliability and quality. Standard ABS and optional ASC provide extra safety.

Make your statement with the R nineT Scrambler.





The new BMW R nineT Scrambler – a down-to-earth character beyond established conventions.


They were ridden by action heroes on the screen and scores of hobby racers entered mountain and beach races on them: the Scramblers. With deep-treaded tyres, a raised exhaust, somewhat extended spring travel 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. And they could be seen virtually everywhere: on winding country roads, stony mountain passes and - where it was allowed - even on sandy beaches.

Thanks to Grey Thumper for the suggestion of putting up the new 2016 BMW R NineT Scrambler on the Cool Wall this week!

It is a new model (version of the NineT) that you should seen in dealerships shortly. No prices as of yet, but expect around $16k USA and $19 Canada...

It's quite good looking, especially for a company that isn't exactly known these days for making good looking bikes. And it's a nice take on retro styling, also unusual for a company that doesn't often do retro (odd considering its long history). I'd prefer a bigger seat and spoked wheels, but I assume those will be available as accessories (especially since the wheel sizes are the same as the previous gen GS).

With a lack of electronic doodads, it has a nice and uncomplicated appeal. As for being a scrambler, I'm sure it'll be fine on the kind of gravel and fire roads that most GS owners consider their off-pavement limit. Cool enough.

I voted: Uncool.

I never look at the vote before I vote and noticed I'm definitely in the minority, which is fine as we all don't have the same tastes. Uncool because I love the look of the NineT (naked), it's a great looking bike, I just feel as if BMW tried to make something out of the NineT that was more of a graphed on accessory than a "let's design it that way" type of bike. So I kinda frown on that, but I do get the idea and appreciate they want to get into that niche market there.

I'm wondering if it is possible we have reached a top in the "scrambler/adventure sport" popularity/styling as everyone seems to have one now and we will start to see the next move in the coming year or two.

Overall, though it's hard to fault the BMW NineT Scrambler, and versus what the competition is putting out, it's a real good looker.

2016 BMW R NineT Scrambler - Coolness Factor = 73.3%
Featured: July 22nd - July 29th, 2016
Most popular vote category: Cool

Motorcycle Cool Wall discussion: viewtopic.php?f=61&t=53356

Your Coolness Factor of the 2016 BMW R NineT Scrambler is:

Awesome (3 points) 40% [ 8 ]
Cool (2 points) 45% [ 9 ]
Uncool (1 point) 10% [ 2 ]
Fail (0 point) 5% [ 1 ]

Total votes: 20

= a Coolwall Factor of 73.3%


Notes: When BMW launched the NineT a couple years ago it was a really nice change to their design philosophy, "due something differently but retro" and the NineT, while a little too expensive, was received very well and did well in their line up. Now BMW brings out another version, the Scrambler showing what the NineT customization is capable of, and the result is a Cool looking bike that very few would hate and quite a lot love. Well done BMW! And I'm with Grey Thumper, let's bring out some more Retro bikes!


Get excited as the next TMW Cool Wall bike for 2016 is now up for voting and discussion, have fun!
