POWERFUL AND STRONG
Much about it brings to mind the first, legendary original G/S. The new BMW R nineT Urban G/S is, however, much more than emotional reminiscing about times past. It is the modern interpretation of a BMW G/S – a machine for on and off-road – based on the successful BMW R nineT. As a member of the family in the Heritage sector, its domain is naturally primarily the road – and the sitting position is correspondingly upright and relaxed. Nevertheless, it also invites you to ride on small dirt tracks or simple off-road passages. The strong emotions radiated by the R nineT Urban G/S result above all from the decisive style elements and style-forming details typical for the G/S.
With the new R nineT Urban G/S, BMW Motorrad has brought yet another expressive Heritage model to market. Since the past success story of the early G/S has an increasing role to play with customisers and customers.
G/SThus at the very first glance the new BMW R nineT Urban G/S reminds us of the beginnings of the G/S story in 1980, which have a longer spring travel and large front wheel and therefore ensured considerably enhanced off-road compatibility compared to that of the scrambler models known to date from the 1970s. As the emotional, off-road-oriented member of the R nineT family, the BMW R nineT Urban G/S is best-placed to round off the current BMW Motorrad Heritage experience in respect of off-roading.
The target group for the R nineT Urban G/S knows no age. They are mostly non-conformist individualists who still remember the early beginnings of the off-road adventure. They value a cool look as well as a bike with a masculine, rustic appearance, a bike with character that will take them anywhere – always with the option of further customising it to their personal taste.
