Full Review: www.motorcycle.com In the day prior to riding the K1600 super tourer in South Africa, I had several opportunities to ask BMW engineers questions about how it compares with Honda's Gold Wing, a veritable icon of the luxury-touring class. "No, this isn't like a Gold Wing," they'd say. In fact, the GL1800 BMW last had for comparative purposes was several years old, and they couldn't recall the last time anyone had ridden it. www.motorcycle.com

Some amazing stunts in the parking lot of BMW's dealership on 90th South in Sandy UT. It was a blast watching this guy. I had a hard time holding the camera I was so amazed by everything he did.
This guy was amazing on the F800GS. The bike is completely stock, only thing he did was let a little air out of the tires. He was doing things that broke the laws of Physics.

Welcome to the world of survival of the fittest on a dirt bike. Now in its sixth year, the Red Bull Romaniacs Hard Enduro Rallye has become synonymous with the word extreme. Over the course of five days, this race teaches each competitor a lesson about reaching their limit. Disguised behind the beautiful landscape of the Romanian countryside is a 600 kilometer course designed to bring the riders to their knees. Finishing this race is a personal achievement.

From the Hobby class to the Pros, Red Bull Romaniacs offers a diverse spectrum of riding for all levels. For anyone who yearns for an enduro challenge like never before, this race is one of the must-dos in life. Everyone comes for the challenge, and they leave here a winner. KINGS OF EXTREME This year, Graham Jarvis returns for the repeat. But he will be chased by Chris Birch and Gerhard Forster who have both stood on the podium before. Three time winner Cyril Despres is also back while the Brit Paul Bolton thinks the 3rd time will be his charm. But lurking in the shadows are a few new comers to Romaniacs who look to spoil the party. Its the toughest field this race has seen and from beginning to end, the action never stops. Starring Chris Birch, Andreas Lettenbichler, Cyril Despres, Darryl Curtis, Paul Bolton, Graham Jarvis, Xavier Galindo Arbones, Chris Denison, Alexander Smith and many more ...
It's a highlight at the EICMA this year. The BMW Motorrad Concept 6 is a six-cylinder bike and stands for supreme smoothness and superior power. The new BMW straight-six will further expand the K-Series in the foreseeable future.
See all the sessions held at the first BMW One Day University at www.autonetwork.com. Exclusive. BMW gave details on motorcycles and introduced the S 1000 RR Superbike. There were business seminars on consumer traits, premium brand customer expectations, product, superbike motorcycle, motorrad, mtorsports and much more.
EICMA: BMW Concept 6 straight six motorcycle. Edit: Tor Sagen Music: I was right by Backstreet Girls. BMW Press release: The new BMW straight-six will further expand the K-Series in the foreseeable future. The first model to be introduced will be an innovative and luxurious BMW touring machine. Reflecting the tradition of the BMW K-Series, this will of course be a genuine top-of-the-line product. Highly compact and dynamic six-cylinder. The starting point for this dynamic introduction of the straight-six in the new Concept 6 from BMW Motorrad is of course the extremely compact form and configuration of the engine. The power unit is approximately 100 mm or 4" slimmer than all former straight-six production engines and only a bit wider than a large-capacity straight-four with conventional technology. The reduction in width is achieved in particular by the slightly over-square bore: stroke ratio with relatively long stroke and very small gaps between cylinders. To achieve this very compact configuration with minimum width, the electrical ancillaries and their drive components are positioned behind the crankshaft in the open space above the transmission. High-tech lightweight construction in all areas serves to make the power unit relatively light from the outset, important components in this context being the two hollow-drilled camshafts and the very light connecting rods. The perfect compensation of masses ensured by the configuration and layout of the engine avoids the ...
The BMW Concept 6 now proves that a straight-six, benefiting from the most advanced construction and production technology, may offer not only unique prestige, but also a supreme standard of riding dynamics. The new BMW straight-six will further expand the K-Series in the foreseeable future. The first model to be introduced will be an innovative and luxurious BMW touring machine. Reflecting the tradition of the BMW K-Series, this will of course be a genuine top-of-the-line product. It's a highlight at the EICMA this year. The BMW Motorrad Concept 6 is a six-cylinder bike and stands for supreme smoothness and superior power. The new BMW straight-six will further expand the K-Series in the foreseeable future.

BMW presents the BMW Concept 6, which features a six-cylinder power unit. While a few engines in straight-six configuration have been fitted in motorcycles both lengthwise and crosswise, the straight-six has never really made a genuine breakthrough neither on production models nor in motorcycle racing. The new BMW straight-six will further expand the K-Series in the foreseeable future. The first model to be introduced will be a BMW touring machine.

Following BMWs long held tradition; this is an evolution of the same boxer twin released in 1970 for the slash 5 ( ) models. ======= Check out On The Lift 1970 BMW R75/5 ========= While featuring many changes over 20 plus years, this bike still bears the strong family traits of its predecessors. In 1979 BMW introduced the first production motorcycle with an integral non-optional touring fairing. Working with the RS design, which featured cutting edge, for the day, wind tunnel testing, BMW made the fairing larger and added a tall screen for the RT. Today this fairing seems, well commonplace, but back then no other manufacturer was close to releasing such a model. The Honda GL1100 Gold Wing ( Goldwing ) Aspencade wouldnt be available from Honda until 1982. Of course you could purchase a number of bolt of fairings ( Vetter ), but these hardly featured the design standards set by BMW. In 82 BMW offered the budget model version of the liter machine as the R80RT. ======== Suggested retail for an R80RT was $5490. The R80RT was $1400 less the 1000cc RT. This price did not include the optional hard bags. ======== ======== The R80RT was available in two colors: Metallic Pacific Blue with silver trim and Metallic Red with gold trim. ========== To compensate for the smaller displacement engine the R80 has a lower rear differential ratio by ...

www.clymer.com 800-262-1954 Welcome to On the Lift episode two, sponsored by Clymer Manuals. I'm James Grooms, Managing Editor. We're at the Tech Center today and on the lift we have a 1970 BMW R75 The /5 ( slash five ) series, introduced for the 70 model year, was a real watershed bike for BMW motorcycle production. The previous generation of machines [ post war wwII R50 R50/2 /2 R60 R60US R69 R69S ] were known for their reliability, comfort and quiet operation. Once exclusive attributes to BMW, however, many of the new models from Japan [ Honda in particular with the CB350, CB450 and revolutionary CB750 ] now achieved this at a lower price along with impressive performance. The /5 was available in 500, 600 and 750 cc capacities... this being a 750, thus the R75 designation [ R50/5 R60/5 ]. While relying on BMWs trademark air cooled boxer twin, the model is a radical departure in many ways from the previous models. A telescopic fork replaced the Earles leading link fork. 12 volt electrics replaced a 6 volt system. And to the horror of many a BMW loyalist the bike was available in a color combination other than schwartz mit weiss. The horizontally opposed twin [ boxer, flat twin or airhead ] with overhead valves was all-new. Outwardly, the first noticeable change from the previous models was the placement of the pushrod tubes under the alloy barrels and cylinder heads revealing that the camshaft is under the crankshaft. [ Yes pushrods! While the world was going with SOHC ...

BMW motorcycles at Bonneville Salt Flats
The first BMW car, was built in Berlin: on 22 March 1929 the first BMW 3/15 PS's left the production hall rented by BMW near Berlin-Johannisthal Airport. The first BMW motorcycle, the R 32 featuring an air-cooled twin-flat engine and shaft drive, was presented a few years earlier in 1923 at the German Car Show in Berlin. The BMW Plant Berlin was part of the team almost from the start: the history of BMW AG started with the production of aircraft engines in Berlin. The first BMW motorcycle built in Berlin - a BMW R 60/2 -- came off the assembly line in 1967, but the motorcycle of the Berlin Plant in the former aircraft engine plant started much earlier back in 1949 with production of the first parts for motorcycles still built in Munich back then. Over the years, motorcycle production was shifted step-by-step from Munich to Berlin. And to this day, Berlin remains the only production plant for BMW motorcycles the world over. Nearly all parts and components required for this purpose were manufactured at the Plant, with a total workforce of not quite 400 employees working in motorcycle production back then. Apart from consistently modernising the facilities, motorcycle production as a whole was substantially expanded in 1983 upon the introduction of the K-Series, BMW AG investing some DM 500 million in an entirely new assembly building and system, as well as a highly automated production line for engine components. Ten years later the Company modernised and expanded the ...
