When BMW Motored debuted the R nineT in 2013, it was more than just a classic roadster. Traditional style, cutting-edge technology, and a high degree of craftsmanship and customization options came together in this motorcycle. The R nineT was later developed into several intriguing variations in the BMW Motored Heritage experience realm, including the R nineT Urban G/S, the R nineT Scrambler, and the R nineT Pure, all of which were based on the R nineT.
The new BMW 2021 R nineT Scrambler Heritage Motorcycle has undergone a few technical changes and a significant increase of standard and optional equipment as of the start of the 2021 season.
BMW 2021 R nineT Scrambler Heritage Motorcycle – Features and Specs
For usage in the new BMW 2021 R nineT Scrambler Heritage Motorcycle, the boxer engine has undergone technical and visual refinement to satisfy EU-5 emission requirements. While its maximum torque remains unchanged at 116 Nm, its peak power output has been lowered to 109 horsepower (80 kW). Allows a smooth transition from the outside to the inside of the cooling fins thanks to revised valve components and cylinder head covers.
The cylinder heads include a unique turbulence system that swirls the mixture to improve combustion and performance. As a result of superior power and torque curve, particularly between 4000 and 6000 rpm, pulling power is substantially better than before.
ABS Pro Including DBC – Dynamic Brake Control
ABS Pro and DBC (Dynamic Braking Control) are standard on the new BMW 2021 R nineT Scrambler Heritage Motorcycle this year, enhancing brake safety in corners and other difficult driving situations.
Additionally, standard equipment includes WAD shock absorbers, which provide increased suspension comfort and convenient spring preload adjustment through a handwheel. Standard features now include rain and road conditions.
Classic Circular Instrument
The new BMW 2021 R nineT Scrambler Heritage Motorcycle with circular instrument panels come equipped with newly designed dials and “invisible” indicator lights. LED headlights and indicator lights are included on all new R nineT models. The new R nineT versions have incorporated a USB charging connector to their vast array of functions.
In terms of both mechanical prowess and aesthetic appeal, the new BMW Motored R nineT models are a significant step forward. The BMW 2021 R nineT Scrambler Heritage Motorcycle and R nineT Urban G/S, Riding Modes Pro, Dynamic Traction Control, and Engine Drag Torque Control are now accessible as new individual options.
The modes “Dyna” and “Dirt” for the R nineT Scrambler and R nineT Urban G/S are also now available as personal choices (MSR). As yet another new choice, there’s the Comfort Package, which comes with Riding Modes Pro and cruise control and heated handlebar grips. Optional accessories such as a turning light and a rear silencer design may now be purchased separately.
In contrast, “Option 719” provides a wide range of unique and high-quality options for personalizing the R nineT to the owner’s specifications. All-new tracker-style rear end and a short rear end with a number plate holder behind the rear wheel are now available from the Original BMW Motored Accessories collection (Tracker rear end).
The R nineT model line receives a final facelift with the new standard and optional paint finishes. The R nineT Urban G/S 40 Years stands out. This one-of-a-kind model is only available as part of a limited run in honor of the BMW Motored GS family’s 40th anniversary.
