BMW Airhead Twins - The Complete Story
No motorcycle manufacturer is more closely associated with one type of engine than BMW: the air-cooled boxer twin or 'airhead'.
It was included in BMW's very first motorcycle in 1923 and virtually every machine the company made, of every type, from 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.
This book includes:
A history of the company pre- and post-War
The personalities behind the development of the bikes
Profiles of each of the 'R' bikes in turn, including detailed specification guides
An epilogue that looks to the future of the airhead twins
These wonderful machines are regularly celebrated and now BMW itself is harking back to them with an all-new series of machines.
