BMW Motorcycles tells the story of the most iconic motorcycles built by Germany's leading motorcycle manufacturer, from the pre-World War II BMWs that
defined performance in that era right up to today's world-class S1000RR. All the bike families are covered—the side-valve machines from the early years,
the early overhead-valve performance bikes, the Earles-forked machines that offered the perfect platform for mounting a Steib sidecar, the postwar
Airheads and Oilheads, the "flying bricks," the GS (Gelände Sport) series that launched a dual-sport revolution, the four- and six-cylinder touring bikes,
the early pushrod singles, the modern overhead-cam singles, the latest parallel twins, and inline four-cylinder sport bikes. From the first model, the
R32 that launched BMW's motorcycle dynasty, to the latest (and fastest) model, the World Super Bike dominating S1000RR, this book captures nearly a
century of motorcycling excellence in contemporary photos.
