2016 BMW R nineT Scrambler Videos Leaked

A number of videos of the new 2016 BMW R nineT Scrambler have leaked online ahead of its official introduction at EICMA. The videos, uploaded to the AutoMotoTV YouTube channel, appear to be official BMW-produced videos, providing clear looks at the Scrambler including footage of how it handles off-road terrain.

The Scrambler will join the R nineT in a new family of “Heritage” products offered by BMW. The R nineT was designed to be modular, and it’s no surprise it shares several components with the Scrambler including the air-cooled 1170cc boxer.

The above screenshot from one video shows the Scrambler with five-spoke wheels and an upswept exhaust similar to the ones on the Concept Path 22 revealed in June. The videos also show the same bike with wire spoke wheels. In a presentation yesterday, BMW Motorrad Chief Stephen Schaller said the Scrambler was “ready to customize” like the R nineT, and the choice of cast or wire-spoke wheels will one such option BMW will likely offer.

BMW hasn’t released any official details about the R nineT Scrambler, so we’ll have to wait for the company’s presentation at EICMA. BMW did confirm the R nineT Scrambler will be joined in Milan by the entry-level G310R revealed yesterday, the previously-announced 2016 C650GT and C650 Sport scooters and a new member of BMW’s F series.

Editor-in-Chief Kevin Duke will be live on the scene and we’ll have full coverage of the new model announcements from BMW and other motorcycle manufacturers at EICMA right here on
