2017 BMW R nineT Urban G/S

There are a lot of custom bike makers out there capitalizing on the retro styling trend. But it isn’t often we see any major players coming out with throwback bikes. Which is a shame, because there are so many examples of killer cycles throughout history from brands that are still around today. Thankfully, BMW seems to have at least picked up on the excellence from their own past. And they’ve revived one of the greats.

Though it looks like a vintage R 80 G/S, BMW’s newly announced 2017 R nineT Urban G/S is far more modern than the ’80s bike from which it draws its styling. For starters, it’s fitted with a 6-speed gearbox and the brand’s air/oil-cooled 1770 cc boxer engine. The result is an output of 110 horsepower (that’s more than double the original). This bike is also equipped with an aluminum fuel tank and stainless steel exhaust system – with a classic left-side tailpipe position. It also has light alloy cast enduro-style wheels and an ABS brake system with 4-piston brake calipers. And it features BMW’s new 3-piece modular frame system for easy customization. We’ll see this bike hit showrooms in 2017.
