BMW Motorrad teases us with details on new boxer engine model coming in 2013
In his speech at the international motorcycle show EICMA in Milan, BMW Motorrad President Stephan Schaller announced that BMW Motorrad will be presenting a new model with air-cooled 'boxer' engine in 2013 as a special way of marking the "90 years of BMW Motorrad" anniversary.
As long ago as 1923, the very first BMW motorcycle - the BMW R 32 – provided what was to become the genetic basis for the BMW Motorrad boxer series over nine decades: an air-cooled, 2-cylinder 4-stroke 'boxer' engine with longitudinally mounted crankshaft and shaft drive to the rear wheel. Always combined with innovative technology and thrilling design - and with one priority above all else: sheer riding pleasure.
The new, distinctive motorcycle to be produced 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 date.
This could be a water cooled version of the oil head boxer,if so maybe one oil pump instead of two.
BMW already announced a water cooled boxer for 2013
Im thinking maybe they are putting out a retro bike for the 90th ann. if so lots of airhead fans will snatch them up as low milage airheads are begining to get hard to find and some traditionalists dont even like the oilhead bikes let alone bricks and the new slants.
Maybe it's time for me to upgrade.
