Everything you want to know about forty of the most iconic BMW motorcycles.

BMW Motorcycles offers history and photography on forty of the most iconic motorcycles built by Germany's leading motorcycle manufacturer: BMW. From the pre-World War II BMWs that defined performance in that era, to the Earles-forked machines that offered the perfect platform for mounting a Steib sidecar, to the "flying bricks," to the GS (Gel#65533;nde Sport) series that launched a dual-sport revolution, right up to today's world-class superbikes. All of BMW's bike families are covered?"the side-valve machines from the pre-World War II years, the early overhead-valve performance bikes, the postwar Airheads and Oilheads, the three-cylinder, four-cylinder, 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 Super Bike dominating S1000RR, this book captures nearly a century of motorcycling excellence with thorough information and stunning, full-color photography.
