Timed for the company's centennial, this spectacularly illustrated coffee-table book traces the awesome evolution of BMW motorcycles from the birth of its iconic R23 "airhead" boxer twin, in 1923, to the superlative race-winning S100RR superbike.

The images in BMW Motorrad are complemented by engaging text describing the personalities and societal forces behind these beloved two-wheeled models. Decade by decade, motorcycle enthusiast, journalist, and photographer Christopher P. Baker captures its wide-reaching revolution from pre-war road bikes to post-war award-winning six-cylinder touring bikes. Pick it up and never put it down.
