Touratech R9X for Romaniacs 2017

Wasn’t this the R nine T Scrambler we were all waiting for?

I admit I was a bit disappointed when I first saw the R nine T Scrambler in the dealership.

A Scrambler is something more than a look. What BMW has done with the R nine T Urban Enduro is something a bit strange to me, let’s make a total off road looking bike which cannot get on the dirt effectively.

Looks are great on a motorcycle, but what matters is performance. Touratech has improved the R nine T to this top level in order to compete in the Red Bull Romaniacs, and the result is breath-taking.

This is the Scrambler I was waiting for, a clear contender to the Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled, with a bigger engine, a shaft drive (maintenance to the minimum) and the air cooled 12 hundred engine from the GS.

This is the way to go BMW, release it for the main audience soon!
