BMW has introduced a Scrambler version of its R nineT roadster, which finds its roots in a racing version of the R 68 model from the early ’50s. Featuring the company’s air/oil-cooled boxer twin motor, the Scrambler deviates from the base R nineT roadster in typical scrambler fashion with a raised exhaust, increased suspension travel, a larger, 19-inch front wheel and more relaxed ergonomics. The Scrambler also features a wide variety of options and accessories for customization, including spoked wheels, off-road tires, a one-person seat, engine guard, number plates and a windshield.

The history of BMW Motorrad is also rooted in the Scrambler concept. In 1951, the BMW R 68 was presented at the International Bicycle and Motorcycle Fair IFMA in Frankfurt with a typical raised 2-in-1 exhaust, just like the one raced by BMW Motorrad legend Georg “Schorsch” Meier.
