Enhancing its purist characteristics, the new BMW R nineT Scrambler is finished in Monolith metallic matt, which is also found on the fuel tank and headlamp housing. The bike’s classic look is accented by black components such as the frame, swing arm, wheels, telescopic forks and gaiters, and engine housing, as well as the front fender and the tail panel of the optional single seat, if mounted.
Meanwhile, contrasting aluminum surfaces result in an overall design that represents both bygone and modern eras of motorcycling. For enthusiasts who love motorcycles that are pure, essential and non-conformist, the R nineT Scrambler is all that – combined with the technology, quality, and riding dynamics that are characteristic of a BMW.
