It was presented to the international motoring press in September 1980 in Avignon, after a gestation that lasted 20 months.
What appears to be a large, awkward and heavy motorcycle immediately turns out to be an extremely effective travel machine in all road conditions.
Excellent weight balance, first-rate chassis, ample load capacity and good comfort over long distances combined with the ability to tackle even demanding off-road routes, decree its immediate success despite a decidedly high sales price.
Mechanically very similar to the road version R 80/7, of which it mounts the opposed-cylinder boxer unit of 797cm³ that delivers 50hp at 6500 rpm, it has the most important innovations in the chassis. Front fork with advanced pivot with 21 "wheel and off-road tires (Metzeler enduro 1), disc with Brembo caliper and sintered pads and, above all, single-sided rear swingarm that integrates the drive shaft inside, as tradition of the brand, cardan.
Cantilever mounted 18 "rear wheel, extremely practical in case of puncture, and tube type tires. Single exhaust terminal, left, with large compensator under the frame.
The model remains in production until 1985, even if some specimens are still sold in Italy in 1986. In 1986 the closing model of what will be considered the first series arrives.
An iconic bike for true enthusiasts of the German brand, which still today express charm, strength and power.
