Stephan Schaller, President - BMW Motorrad, said in his speech at the EICMA, today, that the company will launch an all-new air-cooled boxer-engined motorcycle in 2013, to the mark the 90th anniversary of BMW Motorrad.
Back in 1923, the BMW R32 established the template for future boxer-engined (air-cooled opposed-twin four-stroke engines) BMW motorcycles. Yes, even the mighty BMW HP2 Sport, which was unveiled in 2007, can trace its lineage all the way back to that first R32 of the 1920s!
‘The new, distinctive motorcycle to come out next year will express the genes of 90 years of BMW Motorrad, combined with emotional styling and innovative technology to create a new, multifaceted vehicle concept. The model designation and date of the market launch will be announced at a later stage,’ says a press release from BMW.
