Revival Evokes The Spirit Of BMW’s Dakar-Winning GS With A Marlboro Build

Mar 2, 2020

Category: Rides

First introduced in 1980, BMW’s R80G/S is widely considered to be the first adventure motorcycle. One year after its unveiling, a Marlboro-liveried, HPN-Motorradtechnik-prepped GS specimen was piloted to the Bavarian marque’s first-ever Dakar Rally victory, cementing the model’s legendary status and kicking off a legacy of iconic ADV mounts. BMW later honored its early GS models via the R nineT Urban GS, though Revival Cycles has further invoked the spirit of the HPN racer with this stunning R9T Dakar tribute build.

Adorned in an early GS-inspired Marlboro livery, the build packs upgraded Ohlins suspension and bespoke spacers front and back, allowing it to ride 2.5-3” higher up. The stock respiratory bits have been replaced with an airbag delete, the addition of new pod filters, and a custom two-into-one exhaust culminating in a blacked-out Supertrapp can. There’s also a new flyscreen, hand-guards, and a rear fender — with integrated LED taillight — from Wunderlich. Other additions include a headlight guard, cruise control, a custom-stitched leather saddle, Motogadget pin LED’s fore and aft, painted rear pannier racks and cylinder head crash protection, and a custom extended kickstand for the added ride height. Currently for sale, interested parties can check the bike out on the Revival Cycles website.
