BMW R nineT Scrambler – 2016 Geneva Motor Show LIVE
A customized version of the BMW R nineT Scrambler is one of the very few motorcycles to be on displayed at 2016 Geneva Motor Show. Demonstrating the Scrambler’s versatility when it comes to customization, the show bike features a wide array of custom elements.
While the standard R nineT Scrambler uses alloy wheels, the customized version employs spoke units and off-road tyres which render a meaner appeal. Adding to the character are the headlamp protector, number carrying cowls (above headlamp and rear wheels) and single contrast colored leather saddle. Other salient visual features include a short front fender, muscular fuel tank, custom twin exhaust canister and a compact LED taillight.
Powering the retro classic machine is a 1,170 cc air-oil-cooled flat-twin boxer engine which is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. Power and torque figures stand at 11 PS at 7,750 rpm and 116 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm. The drive is transferred through a shaft.
The R nineT Scrambler is based on a three-section tubular frame which uses engine and gearbox as load bearing members. Suspension duty is handled by sturdy telescopic front fork and rear monoshock. Twin discs upfront and single disc at the rear constitute the braking system.
The BMW R nineT Scrambler, in its standard avatar, is capable of reaching speeds over 200 kmph.
