The BMW R nineT is one of the coolest modern retro motorcycles you can buy and the R nineT Scrambler only goes on to make for a more iconic attention grabber. The old school bodywork is spiced up with a distinctive look on the Scrambler. The handlebar is placed higher and the seat is repositioned, which allows for a confident and relaxed seating position. The suspension also has slightly longer spring travel, which makes a better ride quality. The R nineT Scrambler also gets a new high-positioned dual silencer for a distinctive sound, while there are dual sport tyres to take on rough terrains.
The R nineT and R nineT Scrambler are powered by the same 1,170 cc, air/oil-cooled two-cylinder engine with an output of 109 bhp at 7,520 rpm and peak torque of 119 Nm at 6,000 rpm. Both bikes feature two riding modes, Road and Rain, and are capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 kmph in just 3.5 seconds, with a claimed top speed of 200 kmph. 'Rain' mode offers a gentle throttle response combined with sensitive control of the Automatic Stability Control (ASC) to provide increased safety in low traction conditions. In 'Road' mode, throttle response is balanced, and ASC control is geared towards dry and non-slip road conditions.Other safety equipment include ABS Pro, Dynamic Brake Control (DBC), and a new suspension strut with travel-independent damping (WAD). A new shock absorber with WAD has also been introduced which offers convenient sprint preload adjustment via a hand wheel.
