As a tribute to BMW’s iconic Motorrad GS, it has robust off roading style combined with vintage accents. At its nose sits a central headlamp that’s housed in a solid frame and draws the attention down to the 19-inch front wheel. It has a horizontal line with a slim frame that’s reminiscent of the classic bike from the 80s, made even more obvious by the white body paint. The Motarrad colours are cleverly integrated into the design, with the blue stripes on the side of the body and a vivid red seat. Enduro foot pegs and off road tyres are just two of the many optional additions that make the R nineT Urban more suited to tough roads.
Unlike other sporty motorbikes, the R nineT Urban G/S has raised handlebars, wider-set footrests and a long seat that lets you assume an upright position.
Why change a good thing? The BMW R nineT Urban G/S takes the tried and tested boxer engine of its original sibling. That’s a 110bhp powertrain with two cylinders. It’s powerful enough to allow the bike to reach speeds in excess of 125mph while offering a light ride. For a more sporty experience, customise your bike with a lower seat for greater stability and responsiveness thanks to a lower centre of gravity.
An Anti-Lock Braking System is its most potent standard safety feature that prevents skidding. The R nineT Urban G/S also comes with twin-disk brakes in the front and single disks in the rear.
Technology choices are aplenty, with heated grips, LED turn indicators and Automatic Stability Control available for extra comfort, flair and safety.
BMW Motorrad has crafted the R nineT Urban G/S to perform, which is exactly what it does. Find out for yourself with a test drive from Williams Motorcycles in Manchester. Call us or enquire online to arrange an appointment today.
