The "Art of BMW: 90 Years of Motorcycle Excellence" presents stunning studio portraiture of the rolling sculpture that BMW has been creating for the past 90 years. Each bike portrait is accompanied by a concise, authoritative profile of the machine. All the classic bikes are here--pre-World War II BMWs like the R5 that defined performance in that era- the military R12 that carried the Wehrmacht as it blitzkrieged its way across Europe- the R75M that accompanied Rommel's Panzers in North Africa- 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 ("Gelande Sport") series that launched a dual-sport revolution. All the 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-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.
