BMW Motorrad teases us with details on new boxer engine model coming in 2013

BMW motorrad releases new boxer engine motorcycle for 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.

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.

As a former owner of a 1973 R75/5, I would fit in this category. When I get the courage to do it again, I would be looking for something as close to my old one as possible. That was such a great bike. Right now it seems the closest one is the R1200R.

Ive had my 2012 R1200R for 14 months now and have just over 12K miles on it. I absolutely love this bike. It does everything well from commuting to long distance touring. Last summer a buddy and I rode from Boston to Central Ontario Canada. We rode an awesome route which covered 2600 miles in 7 days.

The more I ride it the more I love it and this is my first BMW bike.

On the trip, stopping for breakfast in Buffalo NY before riding to Boston


Waiting to board the ferry at Tobermory Ontario

I guess I better quit visiting this forum. I will get the fever again for having a bike and then I'll be in big trouble. I'm too old for this sort of fun anyway.

No such thing as too old. I'm 44 and had a 12 year bike break before getting this bike last March. No matter what my day is like, when I get off the bike I'm much happier

Yeah, but I have a son your age. Maybe after my cataract surgery next month.
