BMW Motorcycles: 100 Years
BMW Motorcycles: 100 Years celebrates the legendary machines built by Germany's leading motorcycle manufacturer.
BMW's long history of evolving technology is highlighted in this detailed story beginning with side-valve machines in the 1920s and early overhead-valve performance bikes, then moving to the postwar R-series Airhead and modern Oilhead twins, followed by four-cylinder and six-cylinder K-series touring bikes, the latest parallel twins, and inline-four cylinder sport bikes. From the first R32 that launched BMW's motorcycle dynasty, to the latest S1000RR superbike and R18 mega-cruiser, BMW Motorcycles captures a century of motorcycling excellence in a combination of historic and contemporary photos sourced from BMW's archive.
Respected journalist Alan Dowds has been writing about motorcycles since 1994 and vividly brings to life the epic story of BMW.
