Here is some good news for all motorcycling enthusiasts who dream of owning a BMW motorcycle. BMW Motorrad, the two-wheeler arm of the Bavarian automobile manufacturer, may soon come up with low cost, R nineT based cafe racer and scrambler motorcycles which would be targeted at the mass audience. Latest reports suggest that a R nineT based scrambler will break cover in 2015 while two more models would see the daylight in 2016.
BMW confirmed that the R nineT will be the last motorcycle to receive an air/oil cooled motor. But that does not necessarily mean that the air/oil cooled motors would be thrown out of the window. While the new liquid cooled 1200cc boxer motor will power the GS, GSA, R, RT and RS series of motorcycles, the air/oil cooled motors will make way on the upcoming, cost-efficient doppelgangers of the R nineT. The “blank canvas for customizing” allowed buyers to easily customise the R nineT motorcycles but BMW now plans to use the platform and deliver pre-customised models readily available for sale.
Now coming to the upcoming scrambler motorcycle. While the official images of the upcoming scrambler from BMW are yet to arrive, renderings from MCN which were developed after a long discussion with European dealers give us a brief idea of the upcoming model. This upcoming scrambler motorcycle will reportedly debut in late 2015. BMW will have to price this upcoming Scrambler competitively to grab buyer attention away from Ducati and Triumph Motorcycles.
