The R nineT Urban G/S makes a clear statement: It pays tribute to the early days of BMW Motorrads G/S success story. Just one look and its 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 todays R nineT family.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 invoke 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 knobby off-road tires on spoked wheels, the Enduro foot pegs, the bolted-on heat shield and the steel footbrake lever emphasize the bike’s purpose, both functionally and visually.

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 cc and 110 hp (81 kW) 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 help confidence in a range of riding conditions. One more direct visual reference to the enduro roots of the G/S is 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 33.5”. The optional lower seat height of 32.2” makes the R nineT Urban G/S a great fit for riders of almost all sizes.
