No motorcycle manufacturer is more closely associated with one engine type than BMW: the air-cooled boxer twin or 'airhead.' It was included in BMW's very first motorcycle in 1923. Virtually every machine the company made, of every type, from a radical road bike to TT winner, to land speed record holder, to 1970s style icon, and even to the creation of an all-new adventure bike class with the R 80 G/S, right up to the mid-1990s.
BMW Airhead Twins, with over 290 photographs, includes a history of the company pre- and post-War and the personalities behind the development of the bikes. Profiles of each of the 'R' bikes, in turn, include detailed specification guides and production numbers. Plus, an epilogue that looks at the future of the airhead twins completes the book.
