Cyberjaya, 27th October 2016 – BMW Motorrad Malaysia today introduced the newest BMW R nineT Scrambler.
“The new BMW R nineT Scrambler sets out to revive the Scrambler era in a very special way. It has a very distinct spirit and is created for motorcycle fans who are purists. This motorcyle design style is combined with the technology and quality typical of the BMW brand. Together with the BMW R nineT Roadster, the new BMW R nineT Scrambler without a doubt establishes the new BMW Motorrad Heritage world of experience,” said Mr. Han Sang Yun, Managing Director and CEO of BMW Group Malaysia.
“ Until September 2016, BMW Motorrad has already delivered over 850 units of motorcycles, marking an increase of over 15 per cent as compared to the same period in 2015. We at BMW Group Malaysia are confident that the new BMW R nineT Scrambler will go on to fulfil the desires of many motorcycle fans here with its powerful individual character with authentic charm,” he added.
The new BMW R nineT Scrambler is supreme and impeccably stylish. Its silhouette signals laid-back elegance, with the classic proportions being largely established by the boxer engine, a compact sheet fuel tank and the slim-lined, filigree rear.
As the central feature of the front silhouette, the classic circular headlamps express experience, poise and serenity. The instrument cluster is integrated into the front section of the new Scrambler and features a classic speedometer with analog display. In addition to that, the new BMW R nineT Scrambler is fitted with a dual-row LCD display showing important information such as time and trip distance.
Other eye-catching elements are the painted 17-litre sheet-steel fuel tank and the trim cover made of fine aluminium sheet with embossed R nineT inscription, which runs across the air intake duct on the right of the new Scrambler. As a stricking technical constrast to the painted fuel tank surface, the air intake has a clear anodised surface.
The new BMW R nineT Scrambler features the familiar air/oil-cooled boxer engine with 101-millimetre bore, 73-millimetre stroke and therefore a capacity of 1,170 cc. Its peak output is 110 hp and the maximum torque of 116 Nm goes on stream at 6,000 rpm, with a maximum engine speed of 8,500 rpm.
Engine mapping has also been redefined for use in the new BMW R nineT Scrambler with a view to satisfying the requirements of the EU4 pollutant class. Its fuel consumption stands at 5.3 litres per 100 kilometres. At the same time, the fuel system has been fitted with a carbon canister for tank ventilation purposes. Power transmission to the rear wheel is via the well-established 6-speed gearbox and the universal-shaft drive.
In view of the impressive riding dynamics of the new BMW R nineT Scrambler, the brake system – which comes with ABS as standard – is fitted with 4-piston callipers, steel-wrapped brake lines and 320-millimetre brake discs at the front. At the rear, effective deceleration is ensured by a single-disc brake with a diameter of 265 millimetres and a 2-piston floating callipers.
The price of this BMW R nineT Scrambler starts from RM 92,900.00.
