The air-cooled boxer BMW twins were among the most significant motorcycles of the late 1970s and 1980s, providing an unparalleled combination of comfort, reliability, and performance. Written by a world-renowned motorcycle journalist and featuring 190 colour photographs, here is the authoritative work on these machines.
For nearly 80 years, shaft-drive boxer twins have traditionally formed the backbone of the BMW motorcycle line-up. For many enthusiasts of the Bavarian marque the classic BMW twin was the R90S of 1973-76. Over the decades, successive generations of durable machines - including the R100S, fully-faired R100RS, four-cylinder K-series, high-performance R1100RS and an entire family of touring and sporting models ranging from 850 to 1200cc - would ensure the BMW boxer twins a place in the Haynes "Great Bikes" series. This book covers: historical context, racing, the wartime R75 and R69S; the "75" series which enabled BMW to compete with the high-performance Japanese machines; the R90S, the "76" and Superbike performance; the R100RS, the "77" and the touring R100RT; smaller twins, smaller potential; the R89G/S, including a Paris-Dakar version; rationalization of the boxer range, and the new twins that included four-valve heads and electronic engine management; and technical specifications from 1969 to 2003.

It doesn't list all the correct colour combinations for each year or analyse the bike's design philosophy - there are excellent books listed at the end of this one that do all of that - but it will help you avoid buying a dud. Point by point, it takes the reader through everything that needs looking at when buying a Boxer, plus spares prices, which is the best model to buy for your needs, and a look at auctions, restorations and paperwork The last of the 'classic' air-cooled Boxer twins, these bikes are now collector's items, and many have been saved, restored and continue to be ridden - this book tells the reader how to be part of the Boxer's ongoing story.

It was included in BMW's very first motorcycle in 1923 and virtually every machine the company made, of every type, from radical road bike to TT winner, to land speed record holder, to 1970s style icon and even to the creation of an all-new adventure bike class with the R 80 G/S, right up to the mid-1990s. BMW Airhead Twins, with over 290 photographs, includes a history of the company pre- and post-War, and the personalities behind the development of the bikes. Profiles of each of the 'R' bikes in turn includie detailed specification guides and production numbers. An epilogue that looks to the future of the airhead twins completes the book.
