ENGINE / DRIVE

PERFECT SYNTHESIS OF TRADITION AND MODERN FLAIR –
ENGINE AND DRIVE TECHNOLOGY BY BMW MOTORRAD.

A motorcycle engine has to have character, you have to feel it beneath you – whether the supreme punch of a two cylinder as the flat twin engines have always provided. Or as a supple high performance engine with an absolutely endless engine speed range and power over the entire spectrum, as provided by the BMW Motorrad four cylinders. Or as a majestic, powerful six cylinder engine representing the benchmark type and refinement in motorcycle design.

At the same time, an engine is most fun when you don’t have to look after it: low maintenance and reliability in conjunction with high mileages ensure problem free operation for many years.

The experience of motorcycling also includes putting the performance onto the road in supreme fashion – by means of drive concepts which as well as durability and high efficiency also provide riding pleasure on a day to day basis. With minimal, problem free maintenance and impeccable functioning in all conditions – whether in cold weather and rain or in dry weather and heat. And you can always travel with a clear conscience when it comes to environmental issues, since you can rely on state of the art catalytic converter technology – giving BMW Motorrad a virtually unique position in motorcycle manufacture.

Engine and drive solutions with common sense and emotion – that is technology as conceived by BMW Motorrad.
