2017 BMW R nineT Urban G/S

Post by Alan Coles on Wed Nov 30, 2016 1:08 pm

BMW has expanded their "Heritage" lineup even more with their new G/S to keep the Scrambler company. That now makes for 5 R nineT models in all: Scrambler, Urban G/S, R nineT, Racer, and Pure (L to R)

At 221 kg fully gassed it is 35 kg heavier than the original 1980 GS and obviously like the name implies designed as an "Urban" bike and I guess it would be the least off-road capable of any bike to carry the G/S name, with far less suspension travel, and likely far softer "street" suspension, but it should be a fun Urban bike for anyone looking for such a thing.

They're certainly making it harder to not to find a bike you might want to buy. ;-)
BMW now offer a full 26 different models including a new G310GS, and that doesn't include their soon to be released bagger the BMW K1600B.

Looks like fun on anything from city riding to a relatively smooth fire road, but not much rougher.
