BMW

BMW Motorrad offers a full range of premium motorcycle models. Early in the 20th century and through World War I, BMW manufactured aircraft engines and established the brand as one of high-quality and reliability. Starting with its first motorcycle sale in 1923, BMW bikes were instantly recognizable from their bulky air-cooled, flat-boxer engines. BMW Motorrad still uses the flat-twin boxer configuration in its "R"-series line, but now manufactures engines in a variety of configurations. Starting in 2013, all BMW Motorrad engines are now water-cooled.

BMW Motorcyles naming convention:

BMW Motorrad uses a three-segment model identifier, each segment is separated with a space. The first segment or prefix letter identifies the engine type. The second segment usually indicates the approximate engine size, but there are exceptions to that ’rule.’ Case in point, the F 750 GS has a 853 cc engine.
