BMW Motorrad 90 years history video

BMW Motorrad is 90 years old and to commemorate this big number and make sure none of that history and the legacy is forgotten, BMW has come out with a 90 second video that shows some of the most iconic motorcycles that the brand has produced. Clips of prototype boxer-twin enduros in racing trim — the forerunners to the production R80G/S that eventually led to the current best selling R1200GS models. The avant-garde styled, K1 of 1989 with its aerodynamic body including both front-wheel and rear-end fairing. Iconic touring and sports machines are also shown in action, including the 1976 R100RS; the first mass-produced, fully-faired machine on the market bought by more than 33,000 riders worldwide. The brand’s motorsport heritage is clear to see when the fully kitted-out ‘GS’ desert racers leap onto the screen. Back in the 1970s, BMW was the only motorcycle manufacturer to develop rider gear as well as motorcycle helmets.
