BMW R nineT Urban G/S Edition 40 Years GS old 2022

According To BMW Motorrad

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, challenges you to rewrite history with the R nineT Urban G/S – your history.

The black and yellow design of the “40 Years GS Edition” is a homage to the legendary first touring enduros from BMW Motorrad. And the R 100 GS led the way. The striking accents are clearly reminiscent of the machine that was quickly given the nickname “Bumblebee” back then. In today’s R nineT Urban G/S “40 Years GS Edition”, the milled Option 719 cylinder head covers and the yellow hand protector prove the attention to detail. The off-road tyres and the raised Scrambler exhaust complete the look and are a visual reminder of 40 years of eventful GS history.

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 ridability 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.

The R nineT Urban G/S is a delight. Its unmistakable appearance, the modern boxer engine, the geometry and the well-balanced drivability promise pure fun out on the road. And thanks to the numerous individualisation options, you can make it your very own machine. So you can ride just as confidently on smooth city streets as you can out on gravel and dirt roads in the middle of nowhere. The name says it all: R nineT Urban G/S.

The R nineT Urban G/S is a visual role model: The GS has been almost everywhere in the world in 40 years. From Africa to Central Asia: A motorcycle that has mastered every terrain and every road – powerful and bold despite the elements. The GS is the pioneer of the dual-sport motorcycle.
