2017 BMW R nineT Scrambler Review

2017 BMW R nineT Scrambler on 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.

Break away and accelerate toward freedom, experience new things and enjoy the rush of the wind – with the new R nineT Scrambler. A rugged bike with that authentic scrambler look, combined with the innovative technology and familiar quality of BMW Motorrad.

Whether in the city, on winding country roads or on the beach– the powerful opposed-twin engine and high-positioned dual silencers deliver powerful acceleration and an unmistakeable sound. Even long trips with two people are a breeze thanks to the relaxed seating position. And with a comprehensive range of equipment and accessories, every R nineT scrambler can make a totally unique statement.
