That’s right – 2013 marks the 90th Anniversary of BMW Motorrad. Nine decades of innovation and remarkable technology from the world’s best motorcycle manufacturer.


BMW Motorrad began by producing aircraft engines and in 1923 released their first motorcycle – the R32. The R32 was powered by a boxer engine (air cooled) with two cylinders – an engine that was utilized in a number of different forms over the next 90 years within the Motorrad lineup.

In 2013 BMW Motorrad has stated that they will be releasing a special boxer model which will most likely draw from the stylings of iconic models from the past. Could this be the coolest bike of 2013? Stay tuned!
