‘The Ur­ban G/S is pricier but worth it’

Motorcycle News (UK) - - ROAD TEST -

These tough ret­ros are feel­good bikes. The BMW and Du­cati are thrilling at sane speeds, loaded with at­ti­tude, easy to man­age and have qual­ity run­ning through them like the writ­ing in a stick of rock. They have real dirt cre­den­tials, too. They’re ar­guably the best of the R ninet and Scram­bler ranges. The Desert Sled is hugely ca­pa­ble, fun and the more af­ford­able, but the Ur­ban G/S wins our test with its thrap­pier en­gine, sharper han­dling and ex­tra re­fine­ments. It’s pricier, but worth it.

The Beemer wins on shove and re­fine­ment, but both are a riot
