The House of Munich has designed the BMW R 80 G/S especially for those riders who want a powerful yet agile two-wheeler, capable of tackling the busy traffic of the urban jungle, longer strolls across the countryside and even light off-road tracks. It sports an air-cooled, four-stroke, 797cc, boxer two cylinder powerplant mated to a five-speed manual transmission and can produce a claimed 50 horsepower and 57 Nm of torque.

Also, standard fittings include laced wheels, a dual seat, a small luggage rack in the rear, pillion grab rails, an analogue instrument cluster, a blacked-out, steel frame, a 40mm Marzocchi telescopic front fork and a Paralever rear suspension, plus a braking system composed of a front disc and a rear drum.
