BMW Motorrad has debuted a Desert Racer version of its R nineT at the annual Wheels and Waves custom motorcycle festival in Biarritz, France.
The bike is based on the R nineT Scrambler, but with twin high pipes either side of the seat, wide vintage motocross bars, upgraded forks, smaller tank and headlight, a solo vintage-style seat and chunky Continental TKC80 knobby tyres.
A BMW R nineT Desert Racer would be a none-too-original follow-up on Ducati’s more dirt-oriented Desert Sled version of its popular Scrambler.
In fact, Ducati turned up at this year’s Wheels & Waves with another Desert Sled Scrambler custom that is even more off-road with a stubbier tank, Termignoni exhaust, a quick-release pannier and a toolbox under the swingarm.
Do you think BMW should go ahead and make their more dirt-oriented version of their Scrambler?
