The BMW R nineT Scrambler is a combination of old-school feel of an air-cooled boxer engine, and capable dynamics off the road. The display motorcycle features Metzeler knobby tyres, and spoke wheels to take on the unexplored terrains. The high-set twin exhaust will help in its water-wading capabilities as well. The riding position is upright, with easy to reach handlebars. The motorcycle costs INR 15.9 lakhs, ex-showroom, Delhi.

Powering the BMW R nineT Scrambler is a 1,170 cc flat twin with air and oil cooling. The engine makes 110 PS of power at 7,750 rpm, and 116 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm. A 6-speed transmission transfers the power to the wheel via a shaft drive. Automatic Stability Control (ASC) and ABS are standard.
