Bmw R Ninet Scrambler

The EICMA motorcycle show in Italy is presenting some very interesting models, yesterday we featured Ducatis new cruiser, the XDiavel, and today we take a look at BMWs new offering, the awesome R NineT Scrambler, a new version of the R NineT with a cafe-racer style. BMW designers have taken the classic Scrambler approach that recalls off-road dirt bikes from the 1950s, 60s, and 70s, but with modern technology and performance youd expect nowadays. It is powered by a 1.17-liter boxer twin engine, good for 110 horsepower and 85 pound-feet of torque. Other features include a large 19" wheel up front, raised exhausts with twin silencers, 4-piston calipers, and ABS standard.
