Bavarian combiners in Italy.
Curtains up for the BMW Motorrad Concept 9cento.
<p>It's the stage for aesthetics, elegance and timeless design: at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este at Lake Como, unforgotten motorcycle classics stand alongside new concept vehicles and win over the hearts of the audience. The perfect place to introduce new ideas and designs at the traditional event. Showtime for the world premier of the BMW Motorrad Concept 9cento. </p>
Just beautiful.
BMW Motorrad Days 2018: the community loved it!
<p>It’s become a must-attend event for BMW motorbike fans. Set amidst the stunning mountains of Germany’s Zugspitze, more than 35,000 visitors came from all over the world to celebrate their common passion for motorised two-wheelers. This year’s highlights included break-neck performances by Busty Wolter and his freestyle motocrossers, as well as breath-taking shows by stunt riders Mattie Griffin and Dirk Manderbach, who got the audience cheering in astonishment. The wooden “cauldron” of the Motodrom was all about four roaring BMW R 25s, while tyres smoked and screeched at the drift show in the event arena.<br> Another must-see was the presentation of the new series colours and special paint finishes – thanks to the design range “Option 719”, colourful new combinations spruced up the atmosphere of the exhibition tent. The excitement didn’t die out in the evening either: bands and DJs did their part to keep spirits high well into the night. <br> The event was an all round success, entertaining from the start and ending on Sunday with typical German “Gemütlichkeit” (a cosy, relaxing feeling). Even as everyone started packing up to return to every corner of the world, plans are already in the works for the 19th BMW Motorrad Days, from 5-7 July 2019. Mark your calendars today! We look forward to seeing you. &nbsp;</p>
Carbon Racing.
How the HP4 RACE revolutionises automotive engineering.
<p>It is the first stock motorcycle in the world to have fully carbon chassis and rims: the HP4 RACE. A limited number of them are being crafted by specialists in the BMW Motorrad plant in Berlin. Each individual machine embodies the passion for two-wheelers, pushes boundaries and makes innovation history.&nbsp; </p>
Chasing the Impossible
HP4 RACE
<p>For many, limits are the end of the story. For some, they are only the beginning. With the HP4 RACE, we show the passion of those who like to go beyond their limits. Whatever this may entail – it is something that was previously unimaginable. </p>
Make Life a Ride.
Wake up to life every morning with your engine running.
<p>Every moment is a crossroads. You can turn left, you can turn right, or you can continue straight ahead. You could return to your starting point and then just keep driving. A million paths lie at your feet, each better than the last and no worse than the next. Choose a new path every second and never look back. Because everything you find on the road is forever yours. And that's how you Make Life a Ride. </p>
A look at the next 100 years
What will the motorcycle of the future look like?
<p>The 100th anniversary of the BMW Group is an opportunity to look back at the historic early days of the motorised two-wheeler and ahead to the future, where the role of the motorcycle will be completely redefined in an increasingly digital world.</p> <p>It's the 7th of March, 1916. Bayerische Flugzeugwerke AG (Bavarian Aircraft Works) begins operations on Lerchenauer Strasse in the north of Munich. Three years later, Zeno Diemer sets the world altitude record of 9,760 metres with the BMW IV six-cylinder inline aircraft engine.</p> <p>The small factory will later go on to reach new heights in other vehicle segments. Soon after changing its name to Bayerische Motoren Werke AG, the company begins developing the first motorcycle, long before it enters the automobile sector.</p>

Vision Vehicles circle the globe.
<p>After making its world debut at the Centenary Event on 7 March, the BMW VISION NEXT 100 concept car embarks on a symbolic world tour to China, the UK and the US, where the motorcycle of the future is unveiled in a grand finale. The theme of the tour: "Iconic Impulses. The BMW Group Future Experience". As a visionary, the BMW Group is exploring the opportunities of digitalisation and the impact of technology on our private and professional lives.</p> <p>From Munich, the BMW VISION NEXT 100 travels to Beijing for its Asia debut. Vision Vehicles from MINI and Rolls-Royce debut in London.</p> <p>The final highlight is the world debut of the BMW Motorrad Vision Vehicle in Los Angeles on 11 October. The motorcycle of the future begins to take shape even before it is actually unveiled.</p>
Four Visions. Four Vision Vehicles.
In its anniversary year, the BMW Group looks ahead: what do the vehicles of the future look like?
<p>Over the course of the year, four vision vehicles give you an appetite for what is in store. The BMW, MINI, Rolls-Royce and BMW Motorrad brands paint a visionary picture of the future mobility world. BMW Motorrad rounds this all off splendidly by presenting a visionary motorcycle in Santa Monica in October.</p> <p>There was an inspirational preview of the futuristic designs at the festive opening event for the anniversary year in the Munich Olympiahalle. At the big birthday celebration, the first of a total of four Vision Vehicles were unveiled. The BMW brand got the ball rolling and demonstrated what mobility will feel like in the coming decades with the world premier of the futuristic car BMW VISION NEXT 100. The curtains for the remaining Vision Vehicles will be opened over the coming months.</p>
The Great Escape.
VISION NEXT 100: The motorcycle of the future.
<p>Glasses in place of a helmet, smart clothing, full balance without a kickstand: Only three of the many inventions that could become standards for riding a motorcycle and add a new dimension to the sense of freedom in an increasingly digitised world. And the best thing about it: this vision vehicle is already here. Introducing the BMW Motorrad VISION NEXT 100. </p>
Departed.
A spectacular motorcycle construction from Custom Works ZON.
<p>The Custom Works ZON team from Japan has received numerous awards for their custom bikes. With &quot;Departed&quot;, Yuichi Yoshizawa and Yoshikazu Ueda once again cause a stir – and promptly there is the next price. The heart of the machine is the prototype of a completely new type of opposed-twin engine. </p>

Works of art on two wheels.
Customizers transform bikes into unique items.
<p>He is an originator, a designer, an aesthete: the customizer gives the standard motorcycle an unmistakeable face and a soul. Each and every one of his creations is a work of art. New colours, new shapes. Other materials, other mechanics. It attracts all the looks and makes your heart beat faster.&nbsp;&nbsp; </p>
Propellant for your soul.
R nineT modifications from the most renowned customizers.
<p>The&nbsp;R nineT&nbsp;is the perfect basis for an individual modification: in just a few short steps, its rear end transforms from a two-seater to a solo, and thanks to the separation between vehicle and engine electronics, gearheads have practically no limits in terms of what they can do. The most widely renowned customizers have run riot on the&nbsp;R nineT. With their unmistakable signatures, they show what can be done with expertise and the modern classic boxer. Curtains up for the Soulfuel bikes!&nbsp;&nbsp; </p>
Howl if you want.
The Coyote by Fuel Motorcycles is a tough old dog for the roughest of terrain.
<p>They say coyotes are smart and adaptable. A real tough dog and survivor that is at home on all types of terrain. Even in the desert, its wild howling can be heard. Karles Vives, a customizer from Spain at Fuel Bespoke Motorcycles, was fascinated by coyote dogs and felt sufficiently inspired to name his conversion of an R nineT Urban G/S after the predatory animal. </p>

Soul-searching in the metal.
A futuristic work of art from Blechmann.
<p>Bernhard Naumann is also known as the Tin Man in the customising scene. He primarily creates sheet metal parts for custom bikes that are reminiscent of futuristic art. When he gets an R nineT, he does precisely what shouldn't be done. </p>
The spirit of a legend.
Paris-Dakar feeling with the R nineT Urban G/S.
<p>The Paris-Dakar Rally is legendary, just like the people and machines that competed in it. Joy Lewis explores the early days of the epic desert rally in the cities where the race started and finished. Her two companions: Hubert Auriol, who won the Paris-Dakar Rally twice with BMW in the 80s; and the R nineT Urban G/S – a motorcycle whose design is reminiscent of the legendary R 80 G/S. &nbsp; </p>
Speed intoxication.
Amelie Mooseder and Rolf Reick put their foot down in the Factory Class.
<p>The Sultans of Sprint call speed a religion. It may well be that they believe in speed. Nevertheless, this is anything but a serious affair. Because the 1/8 mile race is a great deal of fun and creativity. Amelie Mooseder and Rolf Reick took to the start line at four sprint races for BMW Motorrad in the Factory Class that was newly founded in 2018. </p>

A new generation of twin-cylinder boxer engines.
Almost 100 years old - and it's only just reaching its prime.
<p>The new twin-cylinder boxer engine fascinates in its diversity from the very first moment. Its character is unmistakeable – in every engine speed range. It offers you increased performance and smooth running at low speeds. The BMW ShiftCam variable camshaft control ensures more powerful torque development over the entire engine speed range, providing greater control in every riding situation. Giving you power whenever you need it. More cubic capacity, more power – with higher efficiency. The strong performance with fewer gear changes gives you sovereignty. A masterpiece of engineering prowess. </p>

It's not about where you come from. It's about where you go.
Across the western USA on the K 1600 B.
<p>There's always something magical about leaving the past behind, to change your life, or simply see something new. Those who take long motorcycle trips gain new perspectives, see new things and learn about themselves and the world around them. Biker, author, and globetrotter Andreas (Andy) Salazar is no exception. He often sets out on his motorcycle to discover new paths and to give his life that crucial drive. Over the years he has learned that it is important to keep reinventing yourself. To find out what he means by saying all of this, we joined him on his tour of the western USA with the new K 1600 B. What we learned: &quot;It’s not about where you came from, but where you’re going next.&quot; </p>

In the beginning was the quarry.
25 years full of freedom, adventure and off-road competence in Hechlingen.
<p>A small town with global appeal: Hechlingen am See, with around 600 inhabitants, may be a tiny spot on the map. Nevertheless, the district of the Heidenheim market is known beyond its Middle Franconian borders all over the world. At least among the community of GS riders. Because the Enduro Park Hechlingen promotes great things. Where once stones, sand and gravel were mined, certified instructors have been bringing the enthusiastic &quot;Homo Enduro&quot; the necessary riding skills for off-road riding all over the world for a quarter of a century.<strong></strong> </p>
Lord of the Enduros.
Dirk Thelen overcomes the hurdles of the Enduro d'Agadir atop the BMW F 850 GS.
<p>For Dirk Thelen, things are only heading in one direction: forwards, onwards and upwards. Where other participants of the four-day long Enduro d’Agadir overcome rocky gravel, sandy pistes and wet-clay mud with their hard Enduros, the four-time German Enduro champion effortlessly sets the pace – atop the new F 850 GS. A long-distance touring enduro subjected to a brutal test and terrain, right through Morocco.&nbsp; </p>
Meet the moderator
Isaac Johnston to present Int. GS Trophy daily highlights.
<p>You may recognise adventure lifestyle photographer Isaac Johnston from the new BMW F 750 GS film and stories but in June he’ll be swapping his trusty camera for a microphone, to bring you all the Int. GS Trophy news direct from the depths of Mongolia. </p>
Preparing a successful event.
All the ingredients to bring the International GS Trophy to the world.

Mesmerising memories from Mongolia.
2018 Int. GS Trophy over but the Spirit of GS lives on.
<p>They came, they rode and they conquered the remote lands of Central Asia during an unforgettable sixth edition of the International GS Trophy. Mongolia welcomed 18 teams from 21 nations who battled hard against each other in their quest for the top spots&nbsp;in the ranking of the Int. GS Trophy. But whatever the final rankings, every participant will leave the land of Genghis Khan with unforgettable memories of this unique&nbsp;once-in-a-lifetime-experience.&nbsp; </p>
Hall of Fame
Pioneers, voyagers and heroes of the Int. GS Trophy.
<p>The biggest challenge of a lifetime, new experiences and pure riding pleasure: the International GS Trophy is and will always be a legend of Enduro-adventures. Here are all of them, since the beginning in 2008 – the riders, who strove and conquered the yonder. Find your champion here, at the Int. GS Trophy Hall of Fame. </p>
A desert tour with a mission.
GS bikers provide clean drinking water in Mongolia.
<p><em>The committed people of Waves for Water have set their sights high: the globetrotters' initiative with filter systems and on-site training around the world ensures that contaminated water becomes potable drinking water. Their mission led the team through the Gobi Desert to the most remote corners of Mongolia, on their BMW R 1200 GS, as part of &quot;Follow the Trails of the GS Trophy&quot;.&nbsp; &nbsp;</em> </p>

The participants are ideally equipped for the Int. GS Trophy.
<p>Mongolia brings riders and motorcycles to their limits: But the R 1200 GS Rallye is up to all these requirements – even in the standard equipment, it is robust and versatile, but is also upgraded with original BMW motorcycle accessories. In addition, it is important to equip the riders with the best gear to master the challenges of the Int. GS Trophy and bring the victory home. </p>

The BMW Motorrad Concept Link takes new, connected paths.
<p>Big city. Endless urban canyons, among which there is something new to discover around every bend. But it is also the desire for movement, freedom and the possibility to get from one place to the next quickly. With the Concept Link, which BMW Motorrad will be unveiling at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este 2017, a concept vehicle has now set about to combine the challenges of urban mobility of tomorrow with the opportunities of a digitalised world. &nbsp; </p>
