Packed with more than 200 colour and black and white photographs and with text displayed in English and German, 90 Years BMW Motorrad is out now and contains more than 300 pages full of interesting tales from the archives that showcase the most popular machines alongside some enticing rarities.

Nine decades of illustrious BMW Motorrad history have been packed into this new book which tells the  story of the development of the BMW brand from its humble origins in the early years of the 20th century all the way to the present-day company that builds incredible technologically-advanced motorcycles.

Published by teNeues, 90 Years BMW Motorrad tells the reader about many of the machines that have shaped the brand’s history, but also about the people behind them, whose drive and ambition to be the best saw many passionate employees take to the racetrack, autobahn or even desert to prove the reliability and potential of the latest products.

With a focus on connecting the past and the present through impressive stories and images, this hardback book celebrates the brand’s 90th anniversary as an insightful retrospective, with exclusive access to the BMW Classic archives and stories of the pioneers who have used BMW power to race, tour and explore throughout the world.

As each decade is explored, the book explains how the brand has incorporated leading technology into some of the most remarkable designs ever produced. The book has a foreword by legendary two and four wheel racer, John Surtees and is available now.
