BMW Motorcycle History VideoIn its latest video, BMW Motorrad accomplished quite the feat – display 90 years of its motorcycle history in 90 seconds.
Though it’s impossible to show all motorcycles BMW Motorrad built in its 90 years, the video – “90 Years in 90 Seconds” – shows some of the most iconic machines in the Bavarian manufacturer’s history.The machines featured in the short film hark back to the “Rennsport” days of racing to the totally revamped 2013 R1200GS adventure bike: prototype boxer-twin endures preceding the R 80 G/S, a 1976 R 100 RS, 1989 K1, the F 800 R and the S1000RR.Speaking of the video, BMW Motorrad says: “Seemingly no sooner than it has begun, this 90-second whistle-stop tour through the archives of BMW Motorrad finishes with the simple tagline ‘Unstoppable since 1923’. Who wouldn’t agree with that?”
