Get a close look at every production motorcycle ever built by BMW.

The Complete Book of BMW Motorcyclesis a thorough year-by-year guide to every production machine ever built by Germany''s leading motorcycle manufacturer. All the classic bikes are here--pre-World War II BMWs such as the R5 that defined performance in that era; the military R12 that carried the Wehrmacht as it blitzkrieged its way across Europe; the Earles-forked R69S that offered the perfect platform for mounting a Steib sidecar; the R90S cafe racer; the K1 "flying brick"; and the GS (Gelände Sport) series that launched a dual-sport revolution, right up to today''s world-class S1000RR.

All of BMW''s bike families are covered--the side-valve machines from the early years, the early overhead-valve performance bikes, the postwar Airheads and Oilheads, 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-Superbike-dominating S1000RR,The Complete Book of BMW Motorcyclescaptures nearly a century of motorcycling excellence with a combination of historic and contemporary photos.

Complete technical specifications for each model make this book a must-have for any serious BMW aficionado. Don''t miss the most thorough reference to these outstanding German motorcycles available today!
