BMW

Once synonymous with machines powered by their legendary flat-twin boxer engine and with shaft drive systems, the current BMW lineup features a range of technically advanced motorcycles with a deserved reputation for quality and reliability. Previously associated mainly with touring and sports touring bikes, in recent years BMW also have firmly established themselves in the adventure bike market with the success of the GS models, which have a dedicated following. The introduction of the S1000RR in 2009 saw BMW’s first venture into the contemporary superbike class with a bike which for the first time would directly challenge the dominance of the Japanese manufacturers.
