BMW to Release a 90th Anniversary Boxer


2013 BMW 90th Anniversary Model

During the press intro for this year’s EICMA in Milan, BMW Motorrad President Stephan Schaller said BMW will release a new air-cooled boxer model in 2013, the bike celebrating “90 years of BMW Motorrad.”

As long ago as 1923, the very first BMW motorcycle – the BMW R 32 – provided what was to become the genetic basis for the BMW Motorrad boxer series over nine decades: an air-cooled two-cylinder 4-stroke “boxer” engine with longitudinally mounted crankshaft and shaft drive to the rear wheel. Always combined with innovative technology and thrilling design – and with one priority above all else: sheer riding pleasure.

The new, distinctive motorcycle to come out next year will express the genes of 90 years of BMW Motorrad combined with emotional styling and innovative technology to create a new, multifaceted vehicle concept.

The model designation and date of the market launch will be announced at a later stage. Stay clicked to for updates.
