BMW motorcycles include the GS adventure touring motorcycles such as the R1200GS, F800GS and G650GS, S1000RR sportbike, R1200R street motorcycle, R1200RT sport tourer and six-cylinder K1600GT and K1600GTL touring motorcycles.

BMW entered the motorcycle business only after it was forced to abandon the aircraft industry after Germany signed the Treaty of Versaillles. BMW’s first motorcycle – the 486cc R 32 – was unveiled in 1923 and since then it has garnered a well-earned reputation for producing machines that stand the test of time. BMW is best known for its hugely popular GS line of on- and off-road motorcycles – a segment that accounts for almost 30% of BMW motorcycle sales worldwide. Despite its success with the GS family, the German marquee has recently made a huge splash in the streetbike segment with its impressive S1000RR. In its very first year the S1000RR topped’s annual literbike shootout.
