Buyer’s Guide Model Detail

Buyer's Guide > R nineT Urban GS
Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
The Urban GS is BMW's homage to Beemers of days gone by. It's based on the R nineT platform, but the bodywork looks straight from the days when the Dakar rally still ran in Africa, and bikes that looked like this were still frontrunners. This isn't a serious adventure bike, but it could provide fun on gravel roads if outfitted with the proper accessories.
