Buyer's Guide > R nineT Urban GS
Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
First seen in concept form at the Wheels 'n Waves festival, 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.
