2016 BMW Motorrad RnineT Scrambler (9)

Scheduled to hit the European market in mid-September, the 2017 BMW Motorrad R nineT Scrambler is an “off-road” retro scrambler version of the standard R nineT. A price of 13,000 euro (RM57,894), including 19% VAT, in Germany – a drop of 1,800 euro (RM8,000) – was announced by Motorrad.

As part of BMW Motorrad’s “Heritage” collection, the 2017 R nineT Scrambler carries BMW’s iconic boxer-twin engine, which, in this guise, is a 1,170 cc air/oil-cooled power plant that puts out 110 hp and 116 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm.

Designed from the outset as a customiser’s machine, the rear sub-frame of the R nineT is designed to be removed, chopped, and cut-off any way the rider wishes. Following the classic lines of scramblers from the 60s and 70s, the RnineT comes with a 19-inch front wheel and telescopic fork, with BMW’s Paralever rear suspension.

The braking system is up-to-date, though, with axially mounted four-piston brake calipers, steel-wrapped brake lines, 320 mm brake discs and ABS. The raised exhaust with split tail-pipes completes the Scrambler’s retro styling.

A full range of official BMW Motorrad accessories is available to customise the look of the 21017 R nineT Scrambler to the owner’s wishes. No word if BMW Motorrad will be bringing the latest iteration of the R nineT Scrambler to our shores, but the current model R nineT retails in Malaysia for RM99,888, including GST and registration, excluding insurance.
