The Magnificence of the BMW Motorcycle
By Ryan Simpson
Ever since 1932 BMW has been making motorcycles that fall in the high-end class and that are regarded as being amongst the highest quality motorcycles.
They are known for excellence and for providing some of the most enjoyable motorcycle rides around.
BMW first introduced the R32 BMW motorcycle in 1932 and have been developing that particular style of motorcycle into something that has fan clubs all over the world.
This first BMW motorcycle had a peculiar engine, known as the "boxer twin" engine. It was designed for air cooling and its two cylinders protruded from opposite sides of the motorcycle.
Later during the BMW motorcycle development they also developed more traditional four cylinder motorcycle models.
Not only did BMW manufacture road bikes, they also branched out into off-road motorcycles and have made a name for themselves there as well.
Apart from the association with quality through the BMW logo and name, BMW motorcycles also attract loyal fans because the motorcycles give comfortable rides without sacrificing sportiness and performance.
Apart from some of its off-road models, the BMW motorcycle generally is a big motorcycle. However, drivers of these motorcycles will tell you that they handle like a dream.
Today they are four different series of BMW motorcycles. These are the F, G, R, and K series.
The F series has a four stroke, four valve engine and has a chain drive to the back wheel. The G series is an off-road motorcycle that BMW developed in conjunction with Aprilia. The R series motorcycles still have their trademark protruding cylinder heads but they have been improved upon over earlier models. The K series has also been developed into a motorcycle technological wonder. Both the R and K motorcycle series come with powerful engines that can drive a small car.
If comfort, style, technology, and stylishness appeal to you in motorcycles, then the BMW motorcycle will definitely be on your shopping list. On the one hand they come with a high price tag, but on the other hand you know that you are buying BMW quality, comfort, and style.
