The 2016 BMW R nineT Scrambler is a bit ho-hum. We'd take a regular R nineT over this anyday...

We don't really 'get' scramblers, but these definitely seem to be the flavour of the season. For 2016, BMW are getting on the scrambler bandwagon with the R nineT Scrambler, which gets rubber boots on the front fork, a raised exhaust and Metzeler Karoo off-road tyres. It still has the regular R nineT's air/oil-cooled 1170cc boxer-twin (which produces 110bhp and 116Nm of torque), but with new fuel-injection mapping and Euro4 compliance.

The BMW R nineT Scrambler also gets a 19-inch front wheel (wire-spoked wheels are optional), and revised suspension geometry that's been optimised for light off-road use and for bombing along on winding country roads. Tyres are 120/70 at the front and 170/60 at the rear, and the Metzeler Karoos' tread pattern is suitable for off-road use, without being unusable on the street. The Scrambler has a relaxed, upright seating position, higher handlebars (compared to the regular R nineT), reduced seat upholstery and rider footrests that are positioned lower and further to the rear.

Interesting details on the R nineT Scrambler include the use of forged aluminium parts with glass-bead blasted, clear anodised surface, tapered and stitched two-person seat in patinised brown leather look, raised exhaust fitted close to the body with twin silencers. BMW will also, of course, offer a full range of accessories for the Scrambler, which hipsters bearded young gentlemen will buy in droves. The bike will reach BMW showrooms in September 2016, with a price tag of 13,000 euros.
