BMW Motorrad USA has announced the price for the R nineT Urban G/S, due to arrive in dealer showrooms by June. The more urbane GS, or more scramblerish nineT, will carry a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Base Price of $12,995.00 (plus a $495.00 destination fee).
Inspired by BMW’s 1980 R 80 G/S, the BMW R nineT Urban G/S is a contemporary rendition of a legendary classic enduro, right down to its red, white and blue BMW Motorsport colors and classic styling. Like BMW’s flagship Heritage model – the R nineT – the Urban G/S features a potent, air/oil-cooled boxer engine with a capacity of 1170cc and an output of 81 kW (110 hp). The stylish urbanite gets a skosh more travel from the 43mm fork, and an extra three-quarters of an inch from the Paralever rear suspension.
The standard features include 19” front wheel (optional off-road tires), headlight fairing + high front fender, higher handlebars, more upright, extended spring travel (4.9”/5.5” vs. 4.7”/4.7”), enduro footrests, one-piece seat, painted steel tank, traditional fork/gaiters, cast wheels, single tailpipe and single speedometer.
