    BMW’s R nineT Scrambler will arrive in Australia in September, priced at $19,150 plus on-roads.

    BMW Motorrad General Manager, Andreas Lundgren said “the R nineT Scrambler is a striking new addition to the line-up, and it will appeal to many.

    “Riders can choose from a range of factory options including spoked wheels, off road tyres, traction control and LED indicators, as well as a stunning brushed aluminium tank.

    “It is a motorcycle that excites all the senses while being a delight to ride.”

    The R nineT Scrambler is BMWs answer to the retro motorcycle craze, saying it harks back to an era of ultimate motorcycle freedom, and it also features modern ABS and heated grips.

    BMW is saying you can jump on the bike and head off to adventure – a secluded beach, your favourite twisty road or simply around town – but we think it will be much better suited for the latter of the two.

    The R nine T Scrambler looks like it has a comfy, relaxed and upright riding position, and its style embodies the retro genre with its distinctive high ‘scrambler’ exhaust, chunky tyres and classic round headlight.

  2. "It's so pure and so simple that you can't take anything away from it any more," well yeah, you could!
    ABS and heated grips for a start...I couldn't help but be fixated on the front of the tank while watching that clip.
    The big indent in the front looks like the fork leg has tankslappered it.
    Those two talking about the bike is funny...

  3. yeah I gotta agree CuttlefishCuttlefish that was a little weird. like many new bikes these days it looks like it would benefit from a tailtidy and maybe some pipes (not sure if underseat would fit but they'd be up and out of the way). if the price is accurate then it's probably not too bad as it's a few grand cheaper than the Thruxton and I guess that would be one of it's main competitors (feel free to correct me on this). I wonder how the specs and performance compares.

    I like it.
  4. Oh holy sh1tballs that thing is HOT!
