With scramblers all the buzz nowadays, it’s unsurprising to see BMW deciding to make some variation of its dated-styled R nine boxer twin and refer to it as the Scrambler. A few mechanical changes and new styling touches transform this motorbike into a do-anything, go-anywhere machine. Its high exhaust pipes, new five-spoke cast wheels, and gaiter-wrapped legs give this bike an aggressive attitude. It may not be a fully-fledged adventure machine, but the blend of the adventurous appearance of the scrambler and the R nine T’s elegant lines makes it command respect on and off the road. One of the notable predecessors to 2016 BMW R NineT Scrambler was 2015 Ducati Scrambler
