40 years of adventure
Four decades of GS
<p>Ready for any challenge: Since 1980, the GS has stood for limitless adventure and curiosity, both on and off the road. 40 years ago, we presented the R 80 G/S for the first time as the conceptual pioneer of touring enduros, which laid the foundation for a decades-long success story.&nbsp;We are celebrating this anniversary with the special editions of our versatile GS models. The 40 Years GS editions are each a homage to the #SpiritOfGS. They boast state-of-the-art technology, but their design is inspired by the legendary R 100 GS and reminds us of the origins of the GS.</p>
New technology, new segment.
BMW Motorrad continues to drive the innovation.
<p>The motorcycle manufacturer surprises with pioneering innovations and the new segment of travel enduro. After the revolutionary single-arm swing from 1980, the BMW Paralever system is introduced in 1987 in the R 100 GS.&nbsp; </p>
The foundations.
Max Friz designs the R32.
<p>At the Berlin Motor Show in September 1923, the starting signal was given for the construction of BMW motorcycles: The R 32 is the first BMW motorcycle, developed by Max Friz. The world-renowned boxer engine will be the manufacturers main characteristic. </p>
Back on top.
BMW enters the international stage with top models and legendary victories.
<p>The 1950s are marked by sporting successes. BMW achieves remarkable top speeds with a series-manufactured&nbsp;machine. Furthermore the drivers of motorcycle teams win world championship titles.&nbsp; </p>
Pioneer, trendsetter.
Bold products get BMW on a roll.
<p>The new four-valve boxer with electronic engine management and the first BMW single-cylinder motorcycle since 1966 come on the market in the 1990s. In addition, in the spring of 1991, BMW Motorrad became the world's first motorcycle manufacturer to offer a regulated three-way catalytic converter for motorcycles.&nbsp; </p>
Up turn.
The two-wheeler boom leads from Munich to Berlin.
<p>In Berlin-Spandau, where aircraft engines were built up to 1945 and subsequently tool machine facilities were installed, the BMW motorcycles are given their new home and Berlin air in their tyres. In keeping with the new motorcycle boom, BMW manufactures a completely newly developed series with the /5 models.&nbsp; </p>
Protection against wind and weather.
Aerodynamics leads to a new model class.
<p>A new era is being introduced: Cockpit and full fairings make driving on the motorcycle more comfortable. There are sporty motorbikes. In particular, the R 90 S is a popular design classic - not least because of its elaborate two-tone paintwork.&nbsp; </p>
Of records and races - and even more records.
New designs lead to the sporting success of BMW motorcycles.
<p>In the 1930s, the engineers not only considered performance development, but also introduced, for example, the hydraulically damped telescopic fork and the elaborately designed OHV boxer engine - with unique consequences and successes. </p>
Sportier and more dynamic than ever.
Continuous growth thanks to a consistent and new model policy.
<p>Several new models and technical innovations are driving the growth at BMW Motorrad: the new K-Series now comes with a transversely mounted engine, and the newly developed F-Series fuels the mid-range segment. At the end of the decade, BMW Motorrad will introduce one of the most important new releases on the market - the S 1000 RR marks the first time that the brand has entered the world of superbikes.&nbsp; </p>
On with pioneering spirit.
Production starts again with the R 24.
<p>After&nbsp;the turmoil of&nbsp;the&nbsp;war, BMW&nbsp;manages a new start with motorcycle production. First they build the R 24 a single-cylinder motorcycle limited to 250 cc. </p>
Defined strength in a straight line
The R 18 Dragster by Roland Sands Design
<p>Roland Sands is known for his daring designs with sports racing influences. He combines styles and knows no limits. When modifying the R 18, he draws inspiration from his father’s drag racing days: He reduces the mighty cruiser to the essentials and gears it up for maximum speed on straight roads. The result is a straight-line dragster with an iconic boxer engine – the R 18 Dragster.</p>
Concept R 18 /2 makes EICMA debut.

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>
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>
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>
Preparing a successful event.
All the ingredients to bring the International GS Trophy to the world.
<p>The Int. GS Trophy is one of the biggest and most complicated logistical exercises imaginable. We speak to the team working tirelessly behind the scenes to make it happen — and the film producer on location tasked with bringing all the highlights to everyone watching around the world.&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp; </p>

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>

Sprint, style and a lot of sound.
At the Glemseck 101, music and motorcycles set the tone.
<p>It has long since gained a reputation as an international motorcycle festival: the Glemseck 101 is a happening of the best and wildest bikes. In Leonberg, the rear wheels on the former Solitude racetrack are going strong – and the international custom scene is mightily turning up the volume in terms of inspiration. Where three days of rock 'n' roll and cool custom bikes meet and attract around 40,000 visitors. &nbsp; </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>
Adventure Kit.
The participants are ideally equipped for the Int. GS Trophy.

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>
Sprint, style and a lot of sound.
At the Glemseck 101, music and motorcycles set the tone.
<p>It has long since gained a reputation as an international motorcycle festival: the Glemseck 101 is a happening of the best and wildest bikes. In Leonberg, the rear wheels on the former Solitude racetrack are going strong – and the international custom scene is mightily turning up the volume in terms of inspiration. Where three days of rock 'n' roll and cool custom bikes meet and attract around 40,000 visitors. &nbsp; </p>

New technology, new segment.
BMW Motorrad continues to drive the innovation.
<p>The motorcycle manufacturer surprises with pioneering innovations and the new segment of travel enduro. After the revolutionary single-arm swing from 1980, the BMW Paralever system is introduced in 1987 in the R 100 GS.&nbsp; </p>
The foundations.
Max Friz designs the R32.
<p>At the Berlin Motor Show in September 1923, the starting signal was given for the construction of BMW motorcycles: The R 32 is the first BMW motorcycle, developed by Max Friz. The world-renowned boxer engine will be the manufacturers main characteristic. </p>
Back on top.
BMW enters the international stage with top models and legendary victories.
<p>The 1950s are marked by sporting successes. BMW achieves remarkable top speeds with a series-manufactured&nbsp;machine. Furthermore the drivers of motorcycle teams win world championship titles.&nbsp; </p>
Pioneer, trendsetter.
Bold products get BMW on a roll.
<p>The new four-valve boxer with electronic engine management and the first BMW single-cylinder motorcycle since 1966 come on the market in the 1990s. In addition, in the spring of 1991, BMW Motorrad became the world's first motorcycle manufacturer to offer a regulated three-way catalytic converter for motorcycles.&nbsp; </p>
Up turn.
The two-wheeler boom leads from Munich to Berlin.
<p>In Berlin-Spandau, where aircraft engines were built up to 1945 and subsequently tool machine facilities were installed, the BMW motorcycles are given their new home and Berlin air in their tyres.

Of records and races - and even more records.
New designs lead to the sporting success of BMW motorcycles.
<p>In the 1930s, the engineers not only considered performance development, but also introduced, for example, the hydraulically damped telescopic fork and the elaborately designed OHV boxer engine - with unique consequences and successes. </p>
Sportier and more dynamic than ever.
Continuous growth thanks to a consistent and new model policy.
<p>Several new models and technical innovations are driving the growth at BMW Motorrad: the new K-Series now comes with a transversely mounted engine, and the newly developed F-Series fuels the mid-range segment.

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>

40 years of adventure
Four decades of GS
<p>Ready for any challenge: Since 1980, the GS has stood for limitless adventure and curiosity, both on and off the road. 40 years ago, we presented the R 80 G/S for the first time as the conceptual pioneer of touring enduros, which laid the foundation for a decades-long success story.&nbsp;We are celebrating this anniversary with the special editions of our versatile GS models. The 40 Years GS editions are each a homage to the #SpiritOfGS. They boast state-of-the-art technology, but their design is inspired by the legendary R 100 GS and reminds us of the origins of the GS.</p>
