Eye-catching. Powerful. Air-cooled.
Enjoy the confident feel of a boxer with an upright and relaxed riding position, coupled with modern technology. Choose from countless customising options for your own unique ideas. 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 riding characteristics make it a true member of today’s R 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.
The source of inspiration: unmistakable.
The design of the R nineT Urban G/S is eye-catching. Distinctive stylistic elements make it a powerful, robust bike that pays tribute to the original G/S design: the 19-inch front wheel, the telescopic fork with the familiar bellows, the headlamp mask with the windscreen and the raised front-wheel cover define the front of the bike. The profile is defined by a pronounced horizontal line. 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 R nineT family.
The R nineT Urban G/S also excels on everything from unpaved paths to gravel roads. The optional knubby tyres and spoked wheels, the Enduro foot pegs, the bolted-on heat shield and the steel footbrake lever emphasise the effect, both functionally and visually.
Technology for pure riding fun.
The R nineT Urban G/S is faithful to tradition with its looks, but the bike shows equal respect for the present with its modern technology. It features the proven engine and electrical system of the BMW R nineT. The Urban G/S also meets the current EU-4 emission standard. The powerful air-cooled, two-cylinder boxer engine features a capacity of 1170 ccm and 81 kW (110 bhp) of output for a highly dynamic power delivery, even at low speeds. All for a light and modern riding experience. The standard ABS and optional ASC Automatic Stability Control ensure that you’re always safe when you bring your power to the road – or gravel. And there’s one last visual reference to the enduro roots of the G/S: the raised exhaust system made of brushed stainless steel.
Upright and majestic.
The balanced ergonomic triangle of the Urban G/S keeps you agile and confident on the road: The slightly higher handlebar, the long seat surface and slightly deeper and wider rear mounted footrests make for a more relaxed and confident riding experience. The standard seat height of the series is 850 mm. Thanks to an optional lower seat, the R nineT Urban G/S offers stability for riders of almost all sizes.
Another visual highlight is the seat bench in a leather look. It is impermeable with a high level of workmanship, focusing on the authentic surface and colouring. Therefore, wearing clothing, such as dark jeans, can lead to staining of the seat bench. This patina effect can usually not be eliminated and does not constitute a defect.
Customizing almost without limits.
Whether you want off-road looks or a retro vibe, the R nineT Urban G/S expresses your lifestyle more than anything else. So when it comes to customising, the possibilities are almost endless, as showcased so well in countless adventures throughout G/S history. The R nineT Urban G/S can be quickly converted into a one-seater thanks to the removable pillion frame. There’s also a tailored range of Original BMW Motorrad accessories to choose from. Options include a crash bar, engine guard or protective headlamp grille. The bike also comes with several optional accessories, including spoked wheels, various tanks, ASC (Automatic Stability Control), heated grips or LED turn indicators. But the R nineT Urban G/S is also ideal for installing specially fabricated add-on components such as our new Machined Parts designed by Roland Sands. In short: Your individuality is just as unrestricted as your riding pleasure.
