AS BM expanded the range to include the introduction of 2 900cc models (R90 and R90S) for 1974 so the reputation grew as being the first ‘superbikes’ – we’re not entirely sure we agree with the press that gave BMW that label, as Kawasaki and Honda already had the Z1 900 and CB750 in the market place.
Regardless, it vaulted BMW from maker of robust and boring tourers to maker of a superbike contender.
In Superbike racing the R90S won the USA title with clever engineering making the R90S competitive.
This twin spark plug R90 is a rare find in this original condition – start touring now on a classic or use her for club rides?
We also have a full fairing, panniers and top box included with this bike if you want her decked out in full touring gear.
Only 29,979 miles showing.
