The BMW R nineT Urban G/S

Authentic, striking, balanced

As the crow flies? No, the detour is the destination. And when it comes to gravel, the R nineT Urban G/S is also in its element. Its design is reminiscent of the first G/S models. This is the legendary BMW R 80 G/S. And with it the idea that simply anything is possible. The geometry with the upright, relaxed seating position, the well-balanced handling and the boxer with its unmistakable sound, challenge you to rewrite history with the R nineT Urban G/S – your history. Personal, individual and truly #Soulfuel.

Tradition – newly designed

A look back and yet forward

The typical G/S look was a must-have in the 80s. The three colours of the R nineT Urban G/S are an unrivalled reminder of this time.

    Light white with tape

    The bright white, the black frame and the bright red seat make the bike a real eye-catcher.

    Option 719 Black storm metallic/Racing red

    With its deep black and red frame, the R nineT Urban G/S is particularly dynamic and striking.

    Imperial Blue metallic

    Whether you are travelling within or beyond city limits: Imperial Blue metallic guarantees you a unique and elegant appearance.

    This one knows how to have fun

    For any punchline

    Power through the city traffic or prefer to take a spontaneous trip over gravel roads? The air/oil-cooled boxer takes your ideas on board. And makes for very fun travel. Its drivability is balanced and full of exciting dynamics whenever it matters. The optimised torque curve guarantees you dynamic pulling power between 4,000 and 6,000 rpm. And this is exactly where you get the most spontaneous ideas. The peak torque is still 116 Nm at 6,000 rpm. And of course the boxer complies with the requirements of the Euro 5 standard.

And the adaptive headlights provide optimum illumination of the inside of corners at heel angles between 7° and 25°.
