Grand Prizes

2017 BMW MOA International Rally Grand Prizes

BMW MOA BMW R nineT Scrambler, Racer, Pure or Urban G/S, value $13,295

Four years ago, BMW Motorrad introduced the R nineT to mark "90 years of BMW Motorrad." Radiating purism and power in an undisguised form, the new R nineT skillfully blended the boxer engine’s rugged character and the design traits of overlapping eras of motorcycle design with cutting-edge technology and a modular concept offering the rider a canvas for personalization. With sales numbers exceeding expectations, in 2015 BMW introduced the second Heritage model, the BMW Scrambler. Last year, BMW expanded the Heritage lineup even further by adding three additional variations of the original R nineT: the Pure, the Racer and the Urban G/S.

We are very excited to announce that we are giving away not one, but two of the newest R nineT Heritage models. This summer in Salt Lake, two lucky rally goers will win their choice of a BMW R nineT Scrambler, Pure, Racer or Urban G/S!

Winners: Marc Mergen (Marietta, GA) and JJ Fleicher (Coeur d'Alene, ID) - Congratulations!

The UNESCO World Heritage city of Dubrovnik is a perfect place to spend a rest day. Two more stops are made on the lush island of Hvar and in the enchanting Venetian coastal town of Zadar in Croatia before the adventure ends in Ljubljana.
