History of BMW

Country of Origin: Germany

BMW began as an aircraft engine manufacturer in the early 20th century and through World War I. BMW manufactured its first motorcycle in 1923, the R32, which featured a flat-twin boxer engine. BMW Motorrad still uses the flat-twin boxer design, but now manufactures motorcycles with a variety of engine configurations.
