Segment: Naked / Road

BMW has updated its R nineT for 2017 and added a new version, the R nineT Urban G/S, that draws from the original R 80 G/S from 1980.

The R nineT retains the original version's modular frame and boxer engine, but is updated with new wheels, a fully adjustable inverted fork and revised steering geometry that has slightly more rake and trail.
