BMW Motorrad India has launched two limited edition motorcycles, the BMW R nineT 100 Years and the BMW R 18 100 Years, to commemorate its 100-year history. The motorcycles will be available for booking at BMW Motorrad India dealerships from now onwards.
BMW Motorrad’s Rich History
In 1922, Max Friz, BMW’s chief designer, drew the first full-scale BMW motorcycle on the drawing board, powered by an air-cooled two-cylinder four-stroke boxer engine. In 1923, BMW presented the R 32, its first motorcycle, marking the start of BMW motorcycle production and a legendary success story.
