BMW has launched the BS6-compliant R nineT at Rs 18.5 lakh and the R nineT Scrambler at Rs 16.75 lakh in India (ex-showroom, India).
For 2021, the 1,170cc boxer engine has been updated to meet the Euro 5 (BS6) emission norms. To achieve this, the company has made a few upgrades to the air- and oil-cooled engine, and it now gets a new cylinder head with a new turbulence system that swirls the mixture to ensure cleaner combustion.
The result of meeting new emission norms is a 1hp drop in peak power, with the engine producing 109hp at 7,250rpm and 116Nm of torque at 6,000rpm. BMW adds that the motor has been tuned to offer a strong midrange, especially between 4,000rpm and 6,000rpm. Besides the new internals, the engine also gets new cylinder head covers that look aesthetically attractive.
