Touratech F 800 ScrambleR

BMW F 800 ScrambleR by Touratech
Most motorcycle design is a compromise between function and form. To our eyes, vintage scrambler-style motorcycles have a head start: road bikes that can also tackle loose gravel and light off-road work are often pleasing from an aesthetic point of view. Unfortunately, Triumph has never quite got it right with its own Scrambler, unless the machine has been lightly modified. And although Moto Morini offers its own stunningly good Scrambler, you’ll be lucky to find a dealer. But now the BMW accessories specialist Touratech has reworked the BMW F 800 R naked bike, and created what could be the definitive modern scrambler—the Touratech “Streetline F 800 ScrambleR“. The finishing touches are still to be added to this bike, but the wraps came off at last month’s BMW Motorrad Days in Bavaria. There’s a short video teaser here. [Thanks to Max Lecointe.]
