German motorcycle manufacturer BMW Motorrad unveiled its interpretation of a scrambler for the first time: the BMW Concept Path 22. Based on the Rnine T, the BMW Concept Path 22 is stripped down to the essentials, every element and surface has a function. The motorcycle is outfitted with milled aluminium wheels, stainless steel Akrapovic tailpipes, stitched leather seat, turn signals integrated into the handlebar ends. At the heart of the BMW Concept Path 22, there is a powerful two-cylinder boxer engine with cardan drive – as is typical of BMW. Other notable highlights include artwork by Ornamental Conifer (alias Nico Sclater) and two surf boards created exclusively by Dyer Brand.
“The BMW Concept Path 22 stands for freedom – freedom of thought and its expression. There are no boundaries. Whatever you like is allowed – as at the Wheels & Waves-Festival. The Concept Path 22 is based on the BMW R nineT, which we see as the epitome of a custom bike. It is actually designed to be modified – customised according to individual preferences. The idea of a BMW scrambler is not new to us. Now seemed to be the right time to present our interpretation of this legendary vehicle concept,” says Ola Stenegard, Head of BMW Motorrad Vehicle Design.
If you’d like to see it in the flesh, visit the Wheels & Waves festival in Biarritz this weekend.
