BMW's motorcycle background began in 1921 if the company commenced manufacturing machines for other businesses. Bike production today works in BMW Motorrad brand name. BMW launched the first bike under its name, the R32, in 1923.

In 1921, BMW started make of its M2B15 flat-twin motor. Designed by Max Friz for use as a lightweight commercial engine, the M2B15 ended up being mainly used by bike producers, particularly Victoria of Nuremberg, and Bayerische Flugzeugwerke in their Helios motorcycle. Friz has also been working on vehicle machines.

BMW combined with Bayerische Flugzeugwerke in 1922, inheriting from their store the Helios motorcycle and a tiny two-stroke motorized bicycle known as the Flink. In 1923, BMW's very first "across the framework" form of the boxer system is designed by Friz. The R32 had a 486 cc engine with 8.5 hp and a high speeds of 95 to 100 km/h. The motor and gearbox created a bolt-up single unit. At the same time when many bike brands used total-loss oiling methods, the latest BMW system showcased a recirculating damp sump oiling program with a drip feed to roller bearings. This method had been used by BMW until 1969, once they adopted the "high-pressure oil" program centered on shell bearings and tight clearances, however being used today.

The R32 became the inspiration for all future boxer-powered BMW motorcycles. BMW oriented the boxer system using cylinder heads projecting out on each part for cooling since did the sooner Uk ABC. Other motorcycle producers, including Douglas and Harley-Davidson, aligned the cylinders using framework, one cylinder dealing with towards front-wheel and also the more towards the straight back wheel. The R32 in addition incorporated shaft drive. BMW has actually carried on to make use of shaft drive on its motorbikes and couldn't emit a chain driven model until the introduction of F650 in 1994.
BMW R2, a 200cc single-cylinder BMW motorcycle. Initial single-cylinder BMW is the 1925 R39.

In 1925, BMW launched the R39, a 250 cc single-cylinder motorcycle. It absolutely was maybe not effective and ended up being stopped in 1927. In 1931, BMW introduced the single-cylinder shaft-driven R2, which, as a 200 cc bike, might be run in Germany without a motorcycle licence at that moment. The R2 headed a few single-cylinder BMW motorcycles, including the 400 cc R4 in 1932 plus the 300 cc R3 in 1936.
BMW R12: the R12 therefore the R17 are the very first manufacturing motorcycles with hydraulically damped telescopic forks

The BMW R12 and R17, both introduced in 1935, are the initial production motorbikes with hydraulically damped telescopic forks.

In 1937, Ernst Henne rode a supercharged 500 cc overhead camshaft BMW 173.88 miles per hour, setting a global record that stood for 14 ages.

During World War II the Wehrmacht recommended as numerous automobiles as it could easily get of sort and many other German organizations are requested to construct motorbikes. The R75 carried out especially really when you look at the harsh operating environment associated with the North African Campaign. Motorbikes of any style had performed acceptably better in Europe but, into the desert, the protruding cylinders of this flat-twin system performed a lot better than various other designs which overheated in the sun. Shaft drives in addition done much better than chain-drives of damaged by wilderness grit.

The U.S. military took note of these importance and requested Harley-Davidson, Indian and Delco to create a motorcycle like the side-valve BMW R71. Harley-Davidson copied the BMW motor and transmission—simply converting metric measurements to inches—and produced the shaft-drive 750 cc 1942 Harley-Davidson XA.

The end of globe War II found BMW in damages. Its plant beyond Munich ended up being damaged by Allied bombing. The Eisenach center, while terribly destroyed, was not completely destroyed, and tooling and machinery was in fact stored safely close by. Unlike popular reports, the premises wasn't dismantled because of the Soviets as reparations and sent to the Soviet Union become reassembled in Irbit to make IMZ-Ural motorbikes; the IMZ plant was provided to your Soviets by BMW under license prior to the German invasion of the Soviet Union in Summer 1941. Following the war, almost all of BMW's designers were taken up to the US or perhaps the Soviet Union to keep the job they had done on jet machines with BMW through the war.

The regards to Germany's surrender forbade BMW from manufacturing motorcycles. In 1947, when BMW obtained authorization to resume bike manufacturing from US government in Bavaria, BMW needed to begin from scratch. There were no programs, plans, or schematic drawings because they were all-in Eisenach. Business engineers had to use surviving pre-war motorbikes to duplicate the bicycles. The very first post-war BMW bike in Western Germany, a 250 cc R24, was produced in 1948. The R24 was reverse-engineered from the pre-war R23 with some improvements within the R23, and had been the only real postwar West German BMW without rear suspension system. In 1949, BMW produced 9,200 products and also by 1950 manufacturing surpassed 17,000 devices.
1949 BMW R24

BMW boxer twins made of 1950 to 1956 included the 500 cc designs R51/2 and 24 hp R51/3, the 600 cc systems 26 hp R67, 28 hp R67/2, and R67/3, and also the sporting 35 hp 600 cc design R68. All those designs was included with plunger back suspensions, telescopic front forks, and chromed, subjected drive shafts. Except for the R68, all those twins came with "bell-bottom" forward fenders and front stands.

The problem had been completely different in Soviet-controlled Eastern Germany where BMW's sole bike plant in Eisenach is making R35 and a small number of R75 motorbikes for reparations. This led to one BMW motorcycle plant present in Eisenach between 1945 and 1948 and two bike businesses present between 1948 and 1952. One ended up being a BMW in Munich in west Germany together with other in Soviet controlled Eisenach, Eastern Germany, both with the BMW title. Ultimately in 1952. after the Soviets ceded control over the plant on East German authorities, and following a trademark lawsuit, this plant is renamed EMW. As opposed to BMW's blue-and-white roundel, EMW used a very comparable red-and-white roundel as its logo. No motorbikes manufactured in East Germany after globe War II were produced beneath the expert of BMW in Munich as there clearly was no need for an occupying capacity to get these types of expert. BMW R35 motorcycles were produced in Eisenach until 1952, once they became EMW.
250cc R27, the past BMW shaft-driven solitary

As the 1950s progressed, bike selling plummeted. In 1957, three of BMW's major German competition went of company. In 1954, BMW produced 30,000 motorbikes. By 1957, that amounts had been lower than 5,500.
1959 R50

In 1955, BMW started introducing a brand new range of motorbikes with Earles forks and enclosed drive shafts. We were holding the 26 hp 500 cc R50, the 30 hp 600 cc R60, and the 35 hp sporting 600 cc R69.

On Summer 8, 1959, John Penton rode a BMW R69 from ny to Los Angeles in 53 time and 11 mins, slashing over a day through the past record of 77 hours and 53 minutes put by Earl Robinson on a 45 cubic inches Harley-Davidson.

Although U.S. marketing of BMW motorbikes were stronger, BMW was at economic trouble. Through mixture of promoting down its plane engine unit and getting funding with Herbert Quandt, BMW could survive. The turnaround was thanks partly into increasing success of BMW's automotive division. Considering that the origins of its bike production, BMW sporadically launched single-cylinder products. In 1967, BMW supplied the last of those, the R27. Most of BMW's offerings remained designed to be applied with sidecars. By this time sidecars are no further a consideration of many bikers; individuals were contemplating sportier motorcycles.

The 26 hp R50/2, 30 hp R60/2, and 42 hp R69S noted the end of sidecar-capable BMWs. Of the period, the R69S remains the most desirable example of the dubbed "/2" series because of considerably better engine energy than other systems, among more services unique to this design.

For the 1968 and 1969 model ages only, BMW shipped into the US three "US" designs. These were the R50US, the R60US, plus the R69US. On these motorcycles, there have been no sidecar lugs attached to the framework and the front forks had been telescopic forks, which were later on made use of around the world on slash-5 series of 1970 through 1973. Earles-fork brands were sold simultaneously in america as purchasers have their chosen forward suspensions.
BMW R75/5

In 1970, BMW launched a totally refurbished product line of 500 cc, 600 cc and 750 cc displacement versions, the R50/5, R60/5 and R75/5 correspondingly, which came with the "US" telescopic forks mentioned above. The motors were a total redesign. The roller and ball-bearings within the bottom end was indeed replaced by shell-type journal bearings similar to those used in modern-day car motors. The camshaft, which have been towards the top of the motor, ended up being placed directly under the crankshaft, providing much better crushed approval under the cylinders while maintaining the reduced centre of gravity for the flat-twin layout. The brand new system had an electric starter, even though conventional gearbox-mounted kick starter is retained. The styling of first models included chrome-plated side panels and a restyled tank. The /5 series was presented with an extended rear swingarm, leading to a longer wheelbase. This improved the managing and permitted a bigger battery pack become set up.

The /5 brands had been the first to ever become built at BMW's newer bike factory in Spandau, western Berlin. Bike production was in fact relocated through the Milbertshofen factory in Munich to this factory, which was indeed built on the website earlier in the day occupied by a Siemens plane motor factory.

The /5 products were short-lived, but being replaced by another brand-new products in 1974. Because year the 500 cc model was removed through the lineup and a level larger 900 cc model ended up being introduced, since had been a five-speed gearbox, and improvements on electric program and frame geometry. These models were the R60/6, R75/6 together with R90/6. In 1973 a supersport model, the BMW R90S, had been launched. In 1975, the kick beginner is finally eliminated.
1994 BMW R100RT

In 1977, the merchandise range moved on towards "/7" versions. The R80/7 ended up being added to the range. The R90 designs, "/6" and R90S versions are changed by up-to-date models with a new 1,000 cc; engine, the R100/7, the R100S additionally the newer super athletics design the R100RS with a complete fairing. This streamlined model, designed through wind-tunnel testing, produced 70 hp along with a high rate of 200 km/h. The R100RS had a shorter rear-end proportion to overcome the bigger wind opposition for the complete fairing. Numerous period motorcycle tests in Germany suggested it had been actually slightly reduced as compared to R100S with only 65 hp. In 1978, the R100RT had been launched into the lineup when it comes to 1979 design seasons, as BMW's very first "full-dress" tourer. The RS and RT fairings are quite similar in appearance; however, the RS fairing is essentially a lightweight streamlining/protective shell and windscreen with no various other functions, while the RT shell ended up being weightier along with two "glove box" lockable compartments, ventilation louvres and a variable windscreen. The RT fairing was widely used for authorities motorcycles, with radio products in fairing compartments.

In 1979, the R60 ended up being changed utilizing the 650 cc R65, an entry level bike with 48 hp which had their own frame build. Because of its small size and better geometrics, forward and rear 18-inch tires and a very light flywheel, was an incredibly well-handling bicycle that may quickly maintain as well as run away from its bigger brothers whenever in correct practical sinuous roads. BMW included a variant in 1982: the R65LS, a "sportier" design with a one-fourth fairing, two fold front disc brake system, stiffer suspension and different carburettors that added 5 hp.

On 25 September 2004, BMW globally established a radically redesigned K-series bike, the K1200S, containing a new in-line four-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine featuring 123 kW. The K1200S had been mostly created as a brilliant recreation bike, albeit bigger and weightier than the closest Japanese competition. After the introduction of this K1200S, trouble are discovered with all the newer power-plant resulting in a recall before the beginning of 2005, when corrective adjustment are put in place.

Within the ages after the establish of K1200S, BMW has also launched the K1200R naked roadster, while the K1200GT recreation tourer, which started to can be found in supplier showrooms in springtime 2006.
