BMW Celebrates 90th with New Boxer ModelWhat’s the gift supposed to be for a 90th anniversary, kryptonite perhaps? How about a stunning retro-modern café-racer with a boxer engine and shaft drive? Well that’s the plan from Munich. 2013 marks nine decades of BMW Motorrad, and, with this upcoming anniversary model, perhaps the swan song for the iconic air-cooled boxer motor (as the GS and other models are transitioning to liquid cooling). Though details are scarce, we do know that the new bike is meant to commemorate the 1923 BMW R 32, which was the origin of the BMW air cooled, boxer powered, shaft driven species. The new bimmer is most likely based on a concept bike first unveiled at the Milan International Motorcycle Show in 2008. Expect it to arrive on our shores in the fall of this year.
