In December 1922, BMW chief designer Max Friz puts the first full-scale BMW motorcycle on the drawing board. At its heart is an air-cooled two-cylinder four-stroke boxer engine. As early as September 1923, the R 32, the first BMW motorcycle, is presented - the starting signal for the construction of BMW motorcycles and, at the same time, an unprecedented success story. In view of the 100-year history, BMW Motorrad is now presenting the two protagonists of the Heritage experience - the R nineT roadster and the R 18 cruiser with big boxer - as 100 Years edition models. In keeping with the year in which BMW Motorrad was founded, both models are limited to 1923 units each.
