As far as BMW Motorrad is concerned, GS is a promise – a promise of perfect functioning, reliability and robustness. The G 310 GS transfers these qualities to the below 500cc capacity segment, embracing them in its own distinctive, mature interpretation.
When BMW Motorrad launched the R nineT in 2013, it was clearly more than just a roadster based on a classic role model. From the outset, the R nineT combined classic motorcycle design and modern technology with sophisticated craftsmanship, as demonstrated by the aluminium fuel tank with brushed side surfaces, for example. In numerous components, the model also reflected the R nineT team's fond attention to detail. The new R nineT likewise radiates this boutique manufacturing character, supported by a range of optimised features.
The unique overall concept of the R 1200 GS, with its down-to-earth character and powerful high-torque engine, thrills a large number of motorcycle fans all over the world. There is a reason this motorcycle has dominated its market segment for many years and is the top-seller within the BMW Motorrad model range.
For more than 35 years, the abbreviation GS in conjunction with BMW Motorrad has been virtually synonymous with a sense of freedom and the passion for adventure on two wheels, both on-road and off-road. The R nineT Urban G/S draws on the genes of the very first and legendary BMW R 80 G/S of 1980, transported into the modern era with contemporary technology in the form of a classic enduro-style BMW motorcycle with boxer engine.
With unrivalled running smoothness, an inimitable sound and the supreme power of its 118 kW (160 hp) six-cylinder in-line engine, the extensively fitted BMW K 1600 GTL already provided incomparable dynamic travel pleasure in its existing form. In the revised version, BMW Motorrad has now optimised the luxurious performance touring bike even further.
