The big in the small: For example, this aluminum valve cover screw shows the very high manufacturing quality of all installed parts. Only the finest.

Authentico: The scrambler is really stylish only after the work in the quarry is done. Only then is the appearance in the city really round.

The “Six Days” are good at raising dust. The boxer has a lot of torque, there is no traction control, and the TKC 80 digs excellent.

Wunderlich R nineT Scrambler Six Days in the driving report

No café, Erzberg!

Wunderlich refines the BMW R nineT with lots of fine parts to make it wonderful "Six Days"-Scrambler. Brush aluminum and brains say trendy café, but TKC 80 wants Erzbergrodeo.

S.he really didn’t deserve it. Wunderlich’s scrambler is a wonderfully coherent feasibility study with great attention to detail. With the “Six Days” based on the R nineT, the Eifler refiner is reminiscent of the Bavarian factory motorcycles of the 1970s. It shows what a plan, a full warehouse with the finest accessories, brushing and polishing tools and many hours of meticulous work make possible. It is also a bit of a foretaste of the BMW scrambler that is coming soon. It is for all Glemsecker, all Wheels and Waves-goers and for all those for whom craftsmanship on two wheels pulls the corners of their mouths up.

No café, Erzberg!

Wunderlich R nineT Scrambler Six Days is also the perfect motorcycle to rattle through the zombie apocalypse in devastating style. For that reason alone, it does not deserve to be judged on functionality and benefit. But it’s no use. Because sooner rather than later, the tiresome question of meaning inevitably arises. That is unworthy, one thinks, and small-minded, in view of so much passion and glitter. Besides, nobody comes with the eye of the beholder, with this machine there can be no two opinions. In any case, the question of meaning is inevitable. And at the latest when it comes to putting the admirable standing equipment to its intended use as a vehicle. Ignition key in the lock, found the starter button above the right cylinder (a stylish and indispensable gimmick), and an old buddy, the air / oil-cooled 1200 boxer, shakes the night’s sleep out of the connecting rods. A robust fanfare from the high-installed GPR horn signals: “Moin, Capt’n. Engine room on the bridge. All horses ready for work! “

Great. But what now? Where to put it? Out on the country road where the nineT is at home? Test the Wunderlich cartridge fork insert and the new shock absorber? Check whether the fully adjustable parts do better than the somewhat clumsy and tight original components? Boote himself, but the wooden stapling cleats of the martial Conti stand across in the truest sense of the word. Asphalt surfing on TKC 80 is a bit like the Vienna Opera Ball with football boots. You could do it, but that’s just not good. Would you rather roll straight to the café and put your pants on? With all the love for the big show, that’s not what it should be about. It’s good that we have a wire in the gravel works. Just checked the insurance policy and, with moderate disregard for common sense, off to the scrambler play paradise of Schotter-Leibfritz. Just a little bit of jerking …

Forged and milled aluminum hubs

Impossible to get enough of it: CNC-machined rim and hub from Kineo.

And doesn’t it fit in perfectly here, Wunderlich’s “Six Days” scrambler? A small list of the installed parts follows, almost everything can be found in the catalog and on the company homepage. From front to back, without any claim to completeness: “Vintage” headlight mask, windshield, XXXL chrome handlebars, ox-eye indicators, “high” fenders in brushed aluminum, brake dust dirt trap, polished original tank (note the elaborate shape and the fine welded seams), steering damper Engine protection bar and protective plate, oil cooler protection grille, intake pipe grille, additional headlights (also indispensable), multiple adjustable brake and clutch levers, axle protection pads front and rear, gear and brake lever enlargement, aluminum number plates, Paralever strut “Vario” (a work of art), GPR Exhaust and bracket, single seat, brushed aluminum rear fender, “Cube” indicator (tiny and ingeniously tightly integrated), “Texas” taillight. Not to forget the sinful “Kineo” wheels with their forged and milled aluminum hubs, also works of art in themselves. In addition, countless lids and guards, all of them, like all built-in parts, of immaculate manufacturing quality. Just pieces of jewelry.

But does all of this make the BMW R nineT in conjunction with the tunnel a gravel works-compatible device? Of course not. Yes, the Conti builds up frightening grip in places and also leads very respectably on the sides, and yes, the upgraded spring elements respond much more finely than their series predecessors. But what it takes for honest scrambling is suspension travel, a larger front wheel and ergonomics that allow riding while standing. Neither the NineT nor the Wunderlich Scrambler have that. Like the base, this marvel is a street motorcycle through and through. So there is nothing more than a strong stir in dust. You don’t drift with the Wunderlich R nineT Scrambler Six Days, you drift with one. But let’s be honest, no one in their right mind will ask such a motorcycle. Therefore, and because the valued competition after us still wants something of the beauty, we stop fooling around before anything else happens. And then inevitably return to the question of meaning.

Freed from the compulsion of pure expediency

Of course, the BMW specialist is not interested in making sense, but in showing what is possible. And the result speaks for itself. On the other hand, you could just put on another rubber band and be happy on the street. But a lot of the rough charm of the wonder comes from the rustic tires. The look only works really well with Stolle. Perhaps the Wunderlich scrambler is a good illustration of a remarkable development. At the end of the 1960s, the motorcycle was freed from the constraint of being purely functional as a means of transport and was allowed to become a leisure and fun object. Sure, your own personality has always been expressed in the choice of the pedestal, the demand of the market, the thrust of the engineers, was primarily the pursuit of technical perfection, driving fun through performance and functionality. The closer you have come to this ideal, and it can be argued that this approximation was very advanced in 2016 for the vast majority of drivers, the more the focus shifts away from technology and performance towards aesthetics and style. Today we observe that a sub-category of motorcycles is being freed to a certain extent from the constraint of functionality. Charm, value, manufactured character and individuality are the definitive purchase criteria for retro bikes.

Many manufacturers find it understandably difficult to do so, apart from the fact that off-the-shelf individuality cannot work. And because, in addition, very few people have the time and skill to lend a hand themselves, the accessory specialists have a nice field of activity here. That can certainly be celebrated, because the refiners can sometimes go crazy and create something that the manufacturers will probably be denied for the time being. Something that is pointless, but awesome.

Coming soon: BMW Scrambler


BMW

BMW itself will also serve the scrambler trend this year. The basis is also the successful R nineT.

The construction kit makes it possible again. BMW will also surf the scrambler wave, with a variant of the R nineT that will be released this year. The drive unit and frame remain essentially unchanged, but the engine receives Euro 4 homologation. The power will remain unchanged at 110 hp, only the maximum torque drops slightly by three to 116 Nm. The periphery is adapted according to the genre. That means: 19-inch front wheel, optionally with coarser Metzeler Karoo tires (spoked wheels cost extra), high and wide handlebars, high-positioned two-in-one exhaust system, slimmer rear. The biggest technical change is an inexpensive telescopic fork instead of the upside-down fork of the nineT; classic bellows then underline the look. The BMW scrambler is said to be priced a little below the BMW R nineT, which costs around 15,000 euros. The driving report can be found in MOTORRAD 16/2016.
