A limited edition BMW R nineT has been produced by the French design and engineering specialists, Boxer Design in association with fashion brand GANT Rugger. Known as the ‘Brooklyn Scrambler’ there will only be six of these bespoke custom motorcycles produced for sale.
With numerous individual customizations options being the raison d-être behind the development of the nineT, respected bike builders across the world are realizing their own interpretations of what can be done with a series production BMW nineT as a starting point. From Roland Sands Design in the USA, right across Europe and all the way to Japan, builders such as Urban Motor, El Solitario, Blitz, Shiro Nakajima, Hideya Togashi, Go Takamine and Kaichiroh Kurosu are all putting their own stamp on nineT custom BMW boxers and showing just what can be achieved with a combination of talent, skill and imagination.
This latest eye-catching retro-styled nineT takes its inspirations from early Scrambler motorcycles, and pays homage in its nomenclature to the Brooklyn borough of New York City. Just six of these nineT specials will be on sale from June via BMW Motorrad dealerships in France.
Assembled by hand in the workshops of Boxer Design in Toulouse, the nine T ‘Brooklyn Scrambler inspired by GANT Rugger comes complete with a two-piece brown saddle stitched and padded leather seat and paintwork in exclusive Grey Denim color with white pin-striping. The standard tires have been replaced with knobbly Continental TKC 80s, the headlight housing has been protected by a black grille and the exhaust headers come with fashionable pipe wrap.
There are special LED direction indicators from BMW Motorrad’s accessories catalog, as well as a special intake aluminium cover, anodized black aluminium mirrors, a ‘scrambler by Boxer Design’ logo on the rocker covers and twin-stacked exhaust by Akrapovic.
The few who will take delivery of the €18,500 (about $25,600) Brooklyn Scrambler nineT will also receive a collector’s edition parka from the GANT Rugger line, which specializes in modern clothes with vintage look. The parkas are based on a design from the GANT archives, are personalized with the colors of the nineT frame and come with a special floral motif lining.
