Along with the BS6 model of the standard R nineT, BMW Motorrad India has also launched the less polluting version of the R nineT Scrambler. Available as a completely built-up unit (CBU), bookings for the new motorcycle have begun. Interested customers can reserve one by visiting any authorised BMW Motorrad India dealership.
BS6 BMW R nineT Scrambler Specs
Just like the standard R nineT, the Scrambler model, too, is powered by a 1170cc boxer engine that now complies with the BS6 emission norms. BMW Motorrad India has incorporated some changes to the powerplant to make that happen. The air/oil-cooled motor now features a new cylinder head to ensure even better combustion and, thus, cleaner emissions. The German brand has also added new cylinder head covers for enhanced visual appeal.
This twin-cylinder boxer engine is capable of pumping out 109hp of max power at 7250rpm and 116Nm of peak torque at 6000rpm. BMW Motorrad India claims that the motor has been tuned for a strong midrange, especially in the 4000-6000rpm, and can achieve a top speed of 200km/h. For the transmission, there’s a 6-speed unit.
BS6 BMW R nineT Scrambler Features
For the BS6 model, the motorcycle gets a newly designed circular instrument cluster with an analogue speedometer and integrated indicator lights. It is contained in a high-quality metal casing. There’s also a full-LED headlamp along with an LED DRL. The rest of the design and styling remain more or less the same. The typical scrambler look is indeed eye-catching. Some of the attractive elements of the BMW R nineT Scrambler include:
- Front fork bellows
- Roughly toothed footrests
- Seat in patented leather style
- Elevated exhaust system
- Alloy wheels
- Relaxed riding position
- Shaft drive
The R nineT Scrambler features two standard riding modes – ‘Rain’ and ‘Road’ to suit individual rider preferences. In ‘Rain’ mode, a gentle throttle response combined with sensitive control of the Automatic Stability Control (ASC) ensures increased safety when accelerating in slippery road conditions such as on a wet road surface. In the 'Road' mode, the throttle response is balanced, and ASC control is geared towards dry and non-slip road conditions.
