2022 BMW R nineT Urban G/S First Look: Fast Facts

The 2022 BMW R nineT Urban G/S hits showroom floors in the final quarter of this year, and it features an all-new color—Imperial Blue Metallic. The striking 40 Years of GS Edition will not be available for ’22, so start nagging your dealer right away if you want one.

If the standard version isn’t posh enough for you, BMW‘s $1500 Select Package is upgraded for 2022 with a smart headlight and wire-spoke wheels. Other Select Package features include Ride Modes Pro, traction control (acceleration and engine-braking deceleration), cruise control, and heated grips.

The boxer twin motor was overhauled last year to meet Euro 5 standards, so it is untouched for 2022—it still puts out 109 horsepower and 86 ft-lbs of torque. The chassis also remained unchanged from last year. Keep in mind that the Urban G/S is not part of the adventure-capable GS series—this is a styling, not engineering, exercise.
