R nineT Urban G/S

From $21,290*

Spectacular. Powerful. Air-Cooled.

The R nineT Urban G/S makes a clear statement: It pays tribute to the early days of BMW Motorrad's G/S success story. Just one look and it's clear that the R nineT Urban G/S captures the off-road spirit of that era. At the same time, its driving characteristics make it a true member of today's nineT family. It reflects the way of life of that time: People knew where they wanted to go, and they knew exactly how they would get there. Off road or on road - you decide with the R nineT Urban G/S.                                                                                          

The Source of Inspiration.

The eyecatching design of the R nineT Urban G/S captures the spirit of the legendary R 80 G/S, winner of the Paris Dakar Rally. Distinctive, stylistic elements make it a powerfully robust bike that pays tribute to the original G/S design: the 19-inch front wheel, the telescopic fork, the headlamp mask with the windscreen and the raised mudguard define the front of the bike. Its profile is defined by white body elements and the narrow, slightly longer red seat revive the spirit of the legendary R 80 G/S from 1980. The black engine and frame highlight this effect. The new classic round instruments also show that the Urban G/S is part of the nineT family. The R nineT Urban G/S also excels on everything from unpaved paths to gravel roads. The optional studded tyres and spoke wheels, the Enduro foot pegs, the bolted-on heat shield and the steel footbrake lever highlight this fact, both functionally and visually.
