BMW to Add New Air-Cooled Boxer Model in 2013

During the press intro for the 2012 EICMA motorcycle show in Milan, BMW Motorrad president Stephan Schaller said that BMW will release a new air-cooled boxer model in 2013, to celebrate “90 years of BMW Motorrad.” In 1923, the first BMW motorcycle – the BMW R32 – set the DNA for the BMW boxer series: an air-cooled two-cylinder four-stroke “boxer” engine with a logitudinally mounted crankshaft and shaft drive to the rear wheel. The 2013 version “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 launch date will be announced later.
