The French division will release a limited edition version of the bike called the R NineT Urban G / S Dakar Series # 1, created in honor of Hubert Oriol.

There are enough models in this series, so most motorcyclists can find something suitable for them. In addition to five serial ones, various anniversary versions, produced in a limited edition, are also being built on a universal platform. For example, like Urban G / S Dakar Series # 1, which will be available only for the French market and then in the amount of only 40 copies.

By issuing a special version, the company pays tribute to Hubert Oriol (in the main photo), the rider who won in 1981 and 1983 in the famous Paris-Dakar rally. Therefore, the bike guesses the design decisions of the legendary BMW R 80 G / S Le Point.

A special color in blue and white colors simulates a rally motorcycle racer. It is also equipped with golden wheels, silver valve covers, new side covers and a single seat.

 In the photographs you can also notice a commemorative number with the number “83”. The upper part of the gas tank in each of the 40 copies is decorated with an engraved tablet with Oriol’s name and autograph.

 The cost of the BMW R NineT Urban G / S Dakar Series # 1 will be 18,500 euros, or about $ 20,700.
