BMW R nineT Scrambler Slated for September, Price Revealed

BMW Motorrad has revealed the official launch date for the R nineT Scrambler. The newest member of the R nineT family will arrive first in the German dealerships on September 17. After this date, the R nineT Scrambler will slowly make it to other dealerships across Europe before reaching worldwide markets.

The house of Munich also reports that the price in Germany was set at €13,000 (19% German VAT included) making the Scrambler the most affordable boxer motorcycle BMW retails.

No mentions were made as to when the BMW R nineT Scrambler will be available across the pond in the U.S. and Canada, but we guess it can't be too long until North American riders will be able to enjoy it. Also, BMW has not mentioned any prices for the US market, or any other market, for that matter.

Speaking of prices, the bike with the highest price tag under the BMW R nineT Scrambler is the F800GS Adventure, a machine that is marginally cheaper at €12,300. Quite able when leaving the asphalt behind, the F800GSA is, however, an entirely different breed of machine. Follow the link to find out the new things about the BMW parallel twin machines.

The Scrambler is the first model in the all-new "Heritage world" BMW introduced last autumn at EICMA in Milan, as it looks like this is only the beginning. We talked to one of BMW Motorrad lead designers and he indicated that the Heritage world will soon be populated by more models.

If BMW's Heritage World will be anything like Yamaha's amazing Faster Sons and Yard Built programs we can expect more neo-retro machines to be unveiled this fall, both at the Intermot in Cologne and at EICMA.

Recent rumors indicate that the Scrambler's family will be complemented by no less than three new R nineT models, but we estimate that more info about these will emerge as the fall bike shows are drawing nearer.

Also, when it comes to the Heritage World, we cannot help remembering the BMW R 5 Hommage concept unveiled in May at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este 2016. Are we in for more BMW neo-retro goodies? We certainly hope so, so stay tuned!
