R nineT Scrambler

Honest. Untamed. Air-cooled.

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

See, hear, feel.

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

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

No limits.

Offroad tyres, a high-positioned exhaust system, typical pair of bellows and a relaxed, upright sitting position – even at a first glance, you’ll see that with the typical Scrambler design no tour has to end where the street does. The 19 inch front wheel, the analogue tachometer, a purist steel tank in monolith metallic matt 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.

Another visual highlight is the seat bench in a leather look. It is impermeable with a high level of workmanship, focusing on the authentic surface and design. Therefore, wearing clothing, such as dark washed jeans, can lead to staining of the seat bench. Discolorations and visual effects of this kind as patina are welcomed and not considered defects.

Typical Scrambler. Typical BMW Motorrad. The R nineT Scrambler is at the highest level in matters of safety, reliability and quality. Standard ABS and ASC ensure your safety.

Riding without rules. Make your statement with the R nineT Scrambler.
