Defined strength in a straight line
The R 18 Dragster by Roland Sands Design
<p>Roland Sands is known for his daring designs with sports racing influences. He combines styles and knows no limits. When modifying the R 18, he draws inspiration from his father’s drag racing days: He reduces the mighty cruiser to the essentials and gears it up for maximum speed on straight roads. The result is a straight-line dragster with an iconic boxer engine – the R 18 Dragster.</p>

40 years of adventure
Four decades of GS
<p>Ready for any challenge: Since 1980, the GS has stood for limitless adventure and curiosity, both on and off the road. 40 years ago, we presented the R 80 G/S for the first time as the conceptual pioneer of touring enduros, which laid the foundation for a decades-long success story. We are celebrating this anniversary with the special editions of our versatile GS models. The 40 Years GS editions are each a homage to the #SpiritOfGS. They boast state-of-the-art technology, but their design is inspired by the legendary R 100 GS and reminds us of the origins of the GS.</p>

R 18 Spirit of Passion by Kingston Custom
<p>&quot;This won’t be just any old, stunning PR bike. It will be one with a soul, a spirit.” In just a few words Dirk Oehlerking makes clear what he – and his modified R 18 – stand for. Kingston Custom bikes are always something very special. They have names such as White Phantom or Good Ghost. And that’s not the only reason they put the fear of God into some and make the hair on enthusiasts’ necks stand on end. Even Dirk himself is gripped by total passion each time he does as much as think about his projects. However, there was something else involved in the R 18 “mega project”: a responsibility like never before.</p>
Concept R 18 roars into life.
BMW Motorrad custom concept unveiled at Villa d’Este.
<p>It’s the world premiere that the custom scene has been eagerly awaiting – a BMW Motorrad custom concept featuring a new prototype flat-twin engine – the highest capacity boxer motorcycle ever produced. Simply christened ‘Concept R 18’, this pure, stripped-down, raked-out bike gives more than a hint of what’s coming our way in the cruiser segment.</p>
Elegant muscleman.
BMW Motorrad presents the Concept 101 touring bike.
<p>Inspired by the never-ending highway, the feeling of freedom and sheer independence, the BMW Motorrad design team came up with a completely new approach to touring motorcycles with their Concept 101: elegant, exclusive, extroverted and pure cruising power.</p>
Our new paint colours.
Update to the existing range of colours form BMW Motorrad.
<p>We regularly freshen up the standard colours on numerous models. Option 719 colours are especially surprising, with effective colour combinations that make your bike look even more unique.</p> <p>Here is an overview of the highlights.</p>
Racer goes club style.
LA Speed Shop turns nineT upside down.
<p>When it comes to choppers and bobbers, Chris Richardson from the LA Speed Shop is one of the most capable and well-known customizers in the USA. He has completely revamped the style of a BMW R nineT Racer. The result is a characterful custom bike that is inspired by the California club style and fits seamlessly into the Soulfuel series of bikes.</p>
Simple elegance.
Auto Fabrica makes the Type 18 design study from the R nineT.
<p>Less is more: That is the motto of the brothers Bujar and Gazmend Muharremi, who are among the best on the British scene with their custom shop Auto Fabrica and who are constantly setting trends. With an elegant design and curved lines, they have refined the R nineT and created a new Soul Fuel bike – the Type 18 is unexcited, but differently exciting.</p>
A masterpiece made of titanium.
Revival Cycles is showcasing big boxer engines with the Birdcage.
<p>Alan Stulberg is a fan of boxer engines. He and his team have created a unique custom bike, living out his creative freedom, for a prototype two-cylinder boxer engine. Inspired by BMW motorcycles from the 1930s and racecars from the early 1960s, this one-of-a-kind bike will be on display for the first time at the Handbuilt Motorcycle Show in Austin, Texas: The Revival Birdcage!</p>

Departed.
A spectacular motorcycle construction from Custom Works ZON.
<p>The Custom Works ZON team from Japan has received numerous awards for their custom bikes. With &quot;Departed&quot;, Yuichi Yoshizawa and Yoshikazu Ueda once again cause a stir – and promptly there is the next price. The heart of the machine is the prototype of a completely new type of opposed-twin engine. </p>
Bavarian combiners in Italy.
Curtains up for the BMW Motorrad Concept 9cento.
<p>It's the stage for aesthetics, elegance and timeless design: at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este at Lake Como, unforgotten motorcycle classics stand alongside new concept vehicles and win over the hearts of the audience.

Chasing the Impossible
HP4 RACE
<p>For many, limits are the end of the story. For some, they are only the beginning. With the HP4 RACE, we show the passion of those who like to go beyond their limits. Whatever this may entail – it is something that was previously unimaginable. </p>
The city at your feet.
The BMW Motorrad Concept Link takes new, connected paths.
<p>Big city. Endless urban canyons, among which there is something new to discover around every bend. But it is also the desire for movement, freedom and the possibility to get from one place to the next quickly. With the Concept Link, which BMW Motorrad will be unveiling at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este 2017, a concept vehicle has now set about to combine the challenges of urban mobility of tomorrow with the opportunities of a digitalised world.   </p>
Park ‘n’ Ride Challenge.
Moving to the next level with the G 310 R.
<p>On to the next challenge with the G 310 R – the Park ‘n’ Ride Challenge. This means: 2 teams, 2 bikes, 2 longboards, a multi-storey car park and a lot of riding pleasure. Curve by curve and level by level, both teams experience the flow. The challenge requires ability, riding skill and a generous slice of fun. Just right for Sarah, Chris, Guto and Sebastian.  </p>
A look at the next 100 years
What will the motorcycle of the future look like?
<p>The 100th anniversary of the BMW Group is an opportunity to look back at the historic early days of the motorised two-wheeler and ahead to the future, where the role of the motorcycle will be completely redefined in an increasingly digital world.</p> <p>It's the 7th of March, 1916. Bayerische Flugzeugwerke AG (Bavarian Aircraft Works) begins operations on Lerchenauer Strasse in the north of Munich. Three years later, Zeno Diemer sets the world altitude record of 9,760 metres with the BMW IV six-cylinder inline aircraft engine.</p> <p>The small factory will later go on to reach new heights in other vehicle segments. Soon after changing its name to Bayerische Motoren Werke AG, the company begins developing the first motorcycle, long before it enters the automobile sector.</p>
Vision Vehicles circle the globe.
<p>After making its world debut at the Centenary Event on 7 March, the BMW VISION NEXT 100 concept car embarks on a symbolic world tour to China, the UK and the US, where the motorcycle of the future is unveiled in a grand finale. The theme of the tour: &quot;Iconic Impulses. The BMW Group Future Experience&quot;. As a visionary, the BMW Group is exploring the opportunities of digitalisation and the impact of technology on our private and professional lives.</p> <p>From Munich, the BMW VISION NEXT 100 travels to Beijing for its Asia debut. Vision Vehicles from MINI and Rolls-Royce debut in London.</p> <p>The final highlight is the world debut of the BMW Motorrad Vision Vehicle in Los Angeles on 11 October. The motorcycle of the future begins to take shape even before it is actually unveiled.</p>
Four Visions. Four Vision Vehicles.
In its anniversary year, the BMW Group looks ahead: what do the vehicles of the future look like?
<p>Over the course of the year, four vision vehicles give you an appetite for what is in store. The BMW, MINI, Rolls-Royce and BMW Motorrad brands paint a visionary picture of the future mobility world. BMW Motorrad rounds this all off splendidly by presenting a visionary motorcycle in Santa Monica in October.</p> <p>There was an inspirational preview of the futuristic designs at the festive opening event for the anniversary year in the Munich Olympiahalle. At the big birthday celebration, the first of a total of four Vision Vehicles were unveiled. The BMW brand got the ball rolling and demonstrated what mobility will feel like in the coming decades with the world premier of the futuristic car BMW VISION NEXT 100. The curtains for the remaining Vision Vehicles will be opened over the coming months.</p>
The Great Escape.
VISION NEXT 100: The motorcycle of the future.
<p>Glasses in place of a helmet, smart clothing, full balance without a kickstand: Only three of the many inventions that could become standards for riding a motorcycle and add a new dimension to the sense of freedom in an increasingly digitised world. And the best thing about it: this vision vehicle is already here. Introducing the BMW Motorrad VISION NEXT 100. </p>
Everything for sport.
Fascination High Performance.
<p>Higher, faster, further. It is well-known that sport is the realm of superlatives. And HP is no exception. But when it comes to High Performance, higher, faster and further is not enough. After all, we are on the hunt for the impossible. And the finish line is just the beginning.   </p>
Raising dust.
Initial spark with the HP2 Enduro.
<p>Erzbergrodeo, Baja California, GCC – the first model in the HP series is being sent by BMW Motorrad straight to where a lot of dust is whipped up. It's a reflection right down to the roots. And at the same time, the starting signal for something entirely new.   </p>
HP for the road.
Out of the gravel with the HP2 Megamoto.
<p>The HP2 Megamoto brings dynamics onto the road – not least because of the carbon parts that are fitted ex works. High Performance for every day.   </p>
The racing boxer.
With the HP2 Sport on the road towards becoming a super sports bike.
<p>How dynamic can BMW Motorrad be? With the HP2 Sport the brand inhaled racing air and is on the way to the first four-cylinder super sports bike from Bavaria.  </p>
A lighthouse made of carbon.
The hunt for the impossible with the HP4 RACE.
<p>It is more than the sum of its parts. The HP4 RACE may well amaze with its fully carbon frame and carbon rims, but it really comes into its own out on the race track. </p>
The super bike.
How the HP4 surpasses its predecessor.
<p>The predecessor through and through – but even faster, more innovative, more exclusive. With this version, on the basis of the RR the first four-cylinder HP model and the first standard motorcycle in the world with the electronic DDC (Dynamic Damping Control) chassis has emerged: the HP4. </p>
Not another boxer.
Hide Motorcycle shapes the R nineT into sporting equipment.
<p>The fact that Hideya Togashi calls his R nineT a plain and simple <em>Boxer</em> is an excessive understatement. Because the custom bike in the seventies racing look is neither plain nor simple. An inventory.  </p>
Ride on & on & on.
New! Three years warranty for you and your new bike for all 2019 models.
<p>BMW Motorrad stands for passion, dynamism, design, technology, innovation and, above all, quality. Based on this conviction, BMW Motorrad is the first premium manufacturer to extend the statutory 24-month warranty for your new bike by one more year. Enjoy peace of mind for 36 months and free repairs if anything goes wrong during this period. For you that means three years' worth of benefits. So what are you waiting for? </p>
Seat Height Overview
<p>With individual adjustment solutions for almost every model, BMW Motorrad supports a custom fit between rider and motorcycle. This promotes standing stability and therefore confident, secure handling at traffic lights or when manoeuvering. BMW Motorrad offer a wide variety of different options to alter the position and height of our seats. This means you will always find a motorcycle that fits you. Below you will find an in-depth breakdown of all of our seat heights by model. </p>
Safety 360°.
Safety requires action. Not words.
<p>To really enjoy the road, you have to be carefree. And on a motorcycle. At BMW Motorrad, we're always working on new solutions that let you focus your eyes and your mind on what's most important: a carefree and fun motorcycling experience. </p>

In its anniversary year, the BMW Group looks ahead: what do the vehicles of the future look like?
<p>Over the course of the year, four vision vehicles give you an appetite for what is in store. The BMW, MINI, Rolls-Royce and BMW Motorrad brands paint a visionary picture of the future mobility world. BMW Motorrad rounds this all off splendidly by presenting a visionary motorcycle in Santa Monica in October.</p> <p>There was an inspirational preview of the futuristic designs at the festive opening event for the anniversary year in the Munich Olympiahalle. At the big birthday celebration, the first of a total of four Vision Vehicles were unveiled. The BMW brand got the ball rolling and demonstrated what mobility will feel like in the coming decades with the world premier of the futuristic car BMW VISION NEXT 100. The curtains for the remaining Vision Vehicles will be opened over the coming months.</p>
The Great Escape.
VISION NEXT 100: The motorcycle of the future.
<p>Glasses in place of a helmet, smart clothing, full balance without a kickstand: Only three of the many inventions that could become standards for riding a motorcycle and add a new dimension to the sense of freedom in an increasingly digitised world. And the best thing about it: this vision vehicle is already here. Introducing the BMW Motorrad VISION NEXT 100. </p>
Park ‘n’ Ride Challenge.
Moving to the next level with the G 310 R.
<p>On to the next challenge with the G 310 R – the Park ‘n’ Ride Challenge. This means: 2 teams, 2 bikes, 2 longboards, a multi-storey car park and a lot of riding pleasure. Curve by curve and level by level, both teams experience the flow. The challenge requires ability, riding skill and a generous slice of fun. Just right for Sarah, Chris, Guto and Sebastian.  </p>
A look at the next 100 years
What will the motorcycle of the future look like?
<p>The 100th anniversary of the BMW Group is an opportunity to look back at the historic early days of the motorised two-wheeler and ahead to the future, where the role of the motorcycle will be completely redefined in an increasingly digital world.</p> <p>It's the 7th of March, 1916. Bayerische Flugzeugwerke AG (Bavarian Aircraft Works) begins operations on Lerchenauer Strasse in the north of Munich. Three years later, Zeno Diemer sets the world altitude record of 9,760 metres with the BMW IV six-cylinder inline aircraft engine.</p> <p>The small factory will later go on to reach new heights in other vehicle segments. Soon after changing its name to Bayerische Motoren Werke AG, the company begins developing the first motorcycle, long before it enters the automobile sector.</p>
Defined strength in a straight line
The R 18 Dragster by Roland Sands Design
<p>Roland Sands is known for his daring designs with sports racing influences. He combines styles and knows no limits. When modifying the R 18, he draws inspiration from his father’s drag racing days: He reduces the mighty cruiser to the essentials and gears it up for maximum speed on straight roads. The result is a straight-line dragster with an iconic boxer engine – the R 18 Dragster.</p>
Concept R 18 /2 makes EICMA debut.
Second BMW Motorrad cruiser concept unveiled.
<p>Just six months ago, BMW Motorrad took the custom scene by storm with the world premiere of the Concept R 18 at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este. Now, a second design study featuring the awe-inspiring 1800cc flat-twin engine has been successfully presented in Milan at the international EICMA motorcycle exhibition.</p>

R 18 Spirit of Passion by Kingston Custom
<p>&quot;This won’t be just any old, stunning PR bike. It will be one with a soul, a spirit.” In just a few words Dirk Oehlerking makes clear what he – and his modified R 18 – stand for. Kingston Custom bikes are always something very special. They have names such as White Phantom or Good Ghost. And that’s not the only reason they put the fear of God into some and make the hair on enthusiasts’ necks stand on end. Even Dirk himself is gripped by total passion each time he does as much as think about his projects. However, there was something else involved in the R 18 “mega project”: a responsibility like never before.</p>
Concept R 18 roars into life.
BMW Motorrad custom concept unveiled at Villa d’Este.
<p>It’s the world premiere that the custom scene has been eagerly awaiting – a BMW Motorrad custom concept featuring a new prototype flat-twin engine – the highest capacity boxer motorcycle ever produced. Simply christened ‘Concept R 18’, this pure, stripped-down, raked-out bike gives more than a hint of what’s coming our way in the cruiser segment.</p>
Racer goes club style.
LA Speed Shop turns nineT upside down.
<p>When it comes to choppers and bobbers, Chris Richardson from the LA Speed Shop is one of the most capable and well-known customizers in the USA. He has completely revamped the style of a BMW R nineT Racer. The result is a characterful custom bike that is inspired by the California club style and fits seamlessly into the Soulfuel series of bikes.</p>
Simple elegance.
Auto Fabrica makes the Type 18 design study from the R nineT.
<p>Less is more: That is the motto of the brothers Bujar and Gazmend Muharremi, who are among the best on the British scene with their custom shop Auto Fabrica and who are constantly setting trends. With an elegant design and curved lines, they have refined the R nineT and created a new Soul Fuel bike – the Type 18 is unexcited, but differently exciting.</p>
A masterpiece made of titanium.
Revival Cycles is showcasing big boxer engines with the Birdcage.
<p>Alan Stulberg is a fan of boxer engines. He and his team have created a unique custom bike, living out his creative freedom, for a prototype two-cylinder boxer engine. Inspired by BMW motorcycles from the 1930s and racecars from the early 1960s, this one-of-a-kind bike will be on display for the first time at the Handbuilt Motorcycle Show in Austin, Texas: The Revival Birdcage!</p>
Departed.
A spectacular motorcycle construction from Custom Works ZON.
<p>The Custom Works ZON team from Japan has received numerous awards for their custom bikes. With &quot;Departed&quot;, Yuichi Yoshizawa and Yoshikazu Ueda once again cause a stir – and promptly there is the next price. The heart of the machine is the prototype of a completely new type of opposed-twin engine. </p>
Not another boxer.
Hide Motorcycle shapes the R nineT into sporting equipment.
<p>The fact that Hideya Togashi calls his R nineT a plain and simple <em>Boxer</em> is an excessive understatement. Because the custom bike in the seventies racing look is neither plain nor simple. An inventory.  </p>

40 years of adventure
Four decades of GS
<p>Ready for any challenge: Since 1980, the GS has stood for limitless adventure and curiosity, both on and off the road. 40 years ago, we presented the R 80 G/S for the first time as the conceptual pioneer of touring enduros, which laid the foundation for a decades-long success story. We are celebrating this anniversary with the special editions of our versatile GS models. The 40 Years GS editions are each a homage to the #SpiritOfGS. They boast state-of-the-art technology, but their design is inspired by the legendary R 100 GS and reminds us of the origins of the GS.</p>

<p>Ready for any challenge: Since 1980, the GS has stood for limitless adventure and curiosity, both on and off the road. 40 years ago, we presented the R 80 G/S for the first time as the conceptual pioneer of touring enduros, which laid the foundation for a decades-long success story. We are celebrating this anniversary with the special editions of our versatile GS models. The 40 Years GS editions are each a homage to the #SpiritOfGS. They boast state-of-the-art technology, but their design is inspired by the legendary R 100 GS and reminds us of the origins of the GS.</p>

Made for the city
The BMW Definition CE 04 is seamlessly integrated into your life.
<p>Quickly get from A to B. From work to your friend’s place, from a café to the city. Flexible, spontaneous, always networked: driver, smartphone and the Definition CE 04. Its drive is completely emission-free, the design completely rethought. With the BMW Motorrad Definition CE 04, we are consistently continuing what we started in our first electric maxi-scooter BMW C evolution and the concept bike Concept Link – maximising mobility and pleasure. Electric and emission-free, networked, permanently #PluggedToLife.</p>
The city at your feet.
The BMW Motorrad Concept Link takes new, connected paths.
<p>Big city. Endless urban canyons, among which there is something new to discover around every bend. But it is also the desire for movement, freedom and the possibility to get from one place to the next quickly. With the Concept Link, which BMW Motorrad will be unveiling at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este 2017, a concept vehicle has now set about to combine the challenges of urban mobility of tomorrow with the opportunities of a digitalised world.   </p>
A look at the next 100 years
What will the motorcycle of the future look like?
<p>The 100th anniversary of the BMW Group is an opportunity to look back at the historic early days of the motorised two-wheeler and ahead to the future, where the role of the motorcycle will be completely redefined in an increasingly digital world.</p> <p>It's the 7th of March, 1916. Bayerische Flugzeugwerke AG (Bavarian Aircraft Works) begins operations on Lerchenauer Strasse in the north of Munich. Three years later, Zeno Diemer sets the world altitude record of 9,760 metres with the BMW IV six-cylinder inline aircraft engine.</p> <p>The small factory will later go on to reach new heights in other vehicle segments. Soon after changing its name to Bayerische Motoren Werke AG, the company begins developing the first motorcycle, long before it enters the automobile sector.</p>
Vision Vehicles circle the globe.
<p>After making its world debut at the Centenary Event on 7 March, the BMW VISION NEXT 100 concept car embarks on a symbolic world tour to China, the UK and the US, where the motorcycle of the future is unveiled in a grand finale. The theme of the tour: &quot;Iconic Impulses. The BMW Group Future Experience&quot;. As a visionary, the BMW Group is exploring the opportunities of digitalisation and the impact of technology on our private and professional lives.</p> <p>From Munich, the BMW VISION NEXT 100 travels to Beijing for its Asia debut. Vision Vehicles from MINI and Rolls-Royce debut in London.</p> <p>The final highlight is the world debut of the BMW Motorrad Vision Vehicle in Los Angeles on 11 October. The motorcycle of the future begins to take shape even before it is actually unveiled.</p>
Four Visions. Four Vision Vehicles.
In its anniversary year, the BMW Group looks ahead: what do the vehicles of the future look like?
<p>Over the course of the year, four vision vehicles give you an appetite for what is in store. The BMW, MINI, Rolls-Royce and BMW Motorrad brands paint a visionary picture of the future mobility world. BMW Motorrad rounds this all off splendidly by presenting a visionary motorcycle in Santa Monica in October.</p> <p>There was an inspirational preview of the futuristic designs at the festive opening event for the anniversary year in the Munich Olympiahalle. At the big birthday celebration, the first of a total of four Vision Vehicles were unveiled. The BMW brand got the ball rolling and demonstrated what mobility will feel like in the coming decades with the world premier of the futuristic car BMW VISION NEXT 100. The curtains for the remaining Vision Vehicles will be opened over the coming months.</p>
The Great Escape.
VISION NEXT 100: The motorcycle of the future.
<p>Glasses in place of a helmet, smart clothing, full balance without a kickstand: Only three of the many inventions that could become standards for riding a motorcycle and add a new dimension to the sense of freedom in an increasingly digitised world. And the best thing about it: this vision vehicle is already here. Introducing the BMW Motorrad VISION NEXT 100. </p>
