R ninet Scram­bler

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Retro Special 2017 -

Launched in 2016, the Scram­bler was BMW’S first ‘ba­sic’ R ninet model and comes with con­ven­tional forks and brakes on a bike given a bit of an of­froad ap­pear­ance. The up­right rid­ing po­si­tion is com­fort­able, and de­spite its 19in front wheel it han­dles sur­pris­ingly well, but it’s not a long-haul bike and is bet­ter suited to short runs due to a lack of wind pro­tec­tion. As with the Ur­ban G/S, the X model adds the choice of tyres, spoked wheels, heated grips and LED lights.
