BMW Motorrad has unveiled the new 2016 BMW R nineT Scrambler at EICMA in Milan alongside the refreshed F 700 GS and F 800 GS. 

These new models join the G 310 R small capacity roadster announced last week at a conference in Munich, and the previously announced C 650 Sport and C 650 GT maxi-scooters.

The new Scrambler is the latest addition to the BMW R nineT model range, offering a similar proposition of a Boxer-powered roadster but with a 'Scrambler' heritage and style. We haven't yet announced a price, but it'll be available in summer 2016 - and you'll be able to see it in person at Motorcycle Live later this month.

Highlights of the new BMW R nineT Scrambler:

  • Powered by the 1,170cc air/oil-cooled Boxer twin motor making 110 hp (81kW) at 7,750 rpm and 116 Nm at 6,000 rpm
  • Classic ‘scrambler’ design including upright seating position, fork gaiters, classic colour scheme and raised twin exhaust
  • Large 19-inch front wheel
  • Modular frame with removable passenger subframe and seat
  • Spoked wheels available as a factory-fit option
  • Huge range of individually tailored accessories available to aid customisation and personalisation

The G 310 R is our first single below 500cc in over 50 years!

BMW Motorrad also displayed the 2016 BMW G 310 R in EICMA, having been launched at a conference in Munich last week. The G 310 R is the company's first roadster under 500cc.

Highlights of the new BMW G 310 R:
  • Innovative 313cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine with DOHC, backward-tilted cylinder and intake tract positioned at the front
  • Making 34 hp (25 kW) at 9,500 rpm and a maximum torque of 28 Nm at 7,500 rpm
  • Rigid tubular steel frame, upside-down forks and long swingarm for a high degree of ride stability, precise steering response and dynamic handling
  • BMW Motorrad ABS as standard
  • Low seat height of 785 millimetres
  • Dynamic roadster design with echoes of the S 1000 R

The new BMW F 700 GS & F 800 GS.                            

BMW Motorrad presents the new BMW F 700 GS and F 800 GS. Two popular models have been updated with a visual refresh, featuring new tank covers, electroplated elements and two-colour seat covers.

A huge range of options will be available for both models - including hard luggage

A total of five possible seat heights for each model (with four seats and optional lowered suspension) offer perfect ergonomics for riders whatever their height.

The new BMW C 650 Sport & C 650 GT.

The C 650 Sport has been thoroughly reworked, making it more sporty than ever

The new C 650 Sport and the new C 650 GT have been updated to offer even greater performance, comfort and safety potential. With an extensively modified drivetrain, more comfortable suspension settings and a completely revised design for the C 650 Sport, they combine more than ever the excellent riding qualities of a motorcycle with the agility and comfort offered by a maxi scooter.          

Highlights of the new C 650 Sport and C 650 GT:

  • New CVT transmission setup in conjunction with revised clutch linings for improved acceleration
  • New suspension and damping setup for an ideal compromise between sport and comfort
  • In addition to ABS, Automatic Stability Control (ASC) comes as standard
  • Completely new, dynamic design for the C 650 Sport
  • Detailed stylistic fine-tuning for the C 650 GT
  • World-first debut of the new Side View Assist (SVA) rider assistance system (SVA) on the C 650 GT

And how about... the Concept eRR?

Last week also saw the debut of the incredible Concept eRR - a fully electric S 1000 RR concept bike.

While we don't know if it'll ever go into production, or what our colleagues in Germany have planned, we love it. What do you think?

So, what next?

All of the new 2016 models will be on display on our biggest-ever stand at Motorcycle Live later this month. Check out www.motorcyclelive.com for tickets and travel info, or read our 'guide to the bike show' here.


  1. All very well, but now that BMW is on the same mad merry-go-round as the Japanese, continually adding to a bewildering procession of 'new' and 'improved' models, where is the incentive to buy anything new, when you know the next 'improved' version will be along within a few months. That's if you can work out whether today's improved or new model does anything really better in the real world than yesterday's or last year's. And when you add in all the stories about quality declining as the model range expands, we can be excused for concluding that the spirit of BMW is being remorselessly sacrificed on the altar of desperate consumerism.

  2. Charley Boorman defecting to Triumph and their new Adventure Enduro range, 4 x 1000cc+Adventure Enduro range from KTM, new Adventure Enduro range from Ducati.....and BMW? Same old, same old as they rush headlong for a range of Oriental lookalikes. Are you abandoning all those loyal R1200GS/A followers.....

  3. Nice, What will be the rates of 310 R in INDIA .
