Shortly after venturing into car manufacture for the first time by acquiring the Dixi works at Eisenach, BMW introduced a major innovation to its motorcycle range in 1929. The transversely mounted 'flat-twin' engine was already a BMW trademark but for the first time it was installed in a pressed-steel frame, the first models to incorporate this landmark of motorcycle design being the 735cc R11 and R16. BMW's relatively vibration-free engine was already a byword for smoothness and refinement, and this, coupled to a three-speed shaft-drive transmission, made the overhead-valve R16 one of the finest large-capacity sports motorcycles of its day. Progressively improved, the R16 was built in five series up to 1934. This R16 displays a total of 25,828 kilometres on the odometer.

Diese R16 wird mit einem Tachostand von 25,828 km versteigert.
