BMW Celebrates Its 90th Anniversary With Classic Bikes
BMW Motorrad will celebrate 90 years of motorcycle manufacturing in 2013, and in order to mark the special occasion the company is issuing three limited edition bikes. The motorcycles will be the R1200GS Adventure, R1200R and the R1200RT, which have all been among the most popular and acclaimed BMW offerings, Auto Evolution reports.

Rumors have been swirling about the bikes for months following the release of spy photos of one of the models, Motorcycle.com reports. Several fans believed the company would debut the machines at one of the international motorcycle shows it attended, but instead BMW chose to release limited information about the anniversary models.

While most of the details about the anniversary bikes have yet to be announced, the teaser images and information point to a roadster that uses the classic engine BMW made its name with – not the newer version on other 2013 models. More information about the anniversary motorcycles is expected to be released in the coming months.

The manufacturer first began creating motorcycles in 1923, when it made the R32, a 486cc Boxer Twin bike, Motorcycle.com reports. BMW may have started as an aircraft engine maker, but it has transformed itself into one of the premier producers of bikes, motorcycle accessories and automobiles.
