BMW Motorrad announces new bike to mark its 90th anniversary
At this year’s EICMA Motor SHOW, BMW Motorrad President Stephan Schaller announced that the company will launch a new bike powered by a fresh air cooled “boxer” engine. The new bike will arrive at the beginning of 2013 and was especially designed to mark the "90 years of BMW Motorrad" anniversary.
BMW’s adventure in the world of motorcycles began back in 1923. Their first bike, the BMW R 32 was a strong and reliable model, powered by a capable air cooled 2-cylinder 4 stroke “boxer” unit which came with longitudinally mounted crankshaft and shaft drive to the rear wheel. The bike managed to gain a pretty good reputation and was especially appreciated for its reliability, built quality and the nimble engine.
The new model will host a series of classic traits borrowed from the old BMW bikes. The German manufacturer added that its multifaceted concept will feature an “emotional styling” and will be equipped with a series of modern technologies.
