The entire history of the BMW motorcycle production, from the original R32 of 1932, through the war years and into the 21st century, is covered in this in-depth look. Particular attention is given to the groundbreaking motorcycles BMW produced in the 1970s. Those include the R90S and the R100RS -- the first mass-produced motorcycle to come equipped with a full, frame-mounted fairing -- and the innovative and popular motorcycles BMW offers today, including the exotic R1200C cruiser and the K1200LT luxury, touring bike. Both of which proved so popular they sent Honda back to the drawing board with its mighty Gold Wing.
