“When what you are deeply passionate about, what you can be best in the world at and what drives your economic engine come together, not only does your work move toward greatness, but so does your life. For, in the end, it is impossible to have a great life unless it is a meaningful life. And it is very difficult to have a meaningful life without meaningful work. Perhaps, then, you might gain that rare tranquility that comes from knowing that you’ve had a hand in creating something of intrinsic excellence that makes a contribution. Indeed, you might even gain that deepest of all satisfactions: knowing that your short time here on this earth has been well spent, and that it mattered.”

R nineT Scrambler

BMW today revealed that the R nineT Scrambler, originally shown as a concept, has been put into production for 2016 and will be unveiled at the Eicma show in Milan on the November 17.
BMW Motorrad intends to use the Scrambler derivative of the R nineT to build on the success of the bike it launched in 2014. Stephan Schaller, head of BMW Motorrad, said: 'With the countless possibilities for individualisation offered by the BMW RnineT and the BMW R nineT Scrambler, we see tremendous potential in the US market, in particular.'
Visordown revealed in June that the R nineT's radial-mounted Brembo monobloc front brake set-up had  been substituted with lower-spec Brembo calipers on the Scrambler concept, and the upside-down Öhlins fork swapped for a right-way-up one. It points to the Scrambler being priced lower than the existing model.
Confirmation it was going into production came in a statement from BMW's corporate news arm in Munich. Along with the news about the R nineT Scrambler, Schaller also said that BMW will be growing its sub-500cc urban range, which will include bikes with electric drive-trains.
He said: 'We will also be expanding our urban mobility offering in this class – including bikes with electric drive-trains.'
Earlier today BMW revealed its first entry into the sub-500cc market, the 313cc single-cylinder G310 R.
