Introduced in 1991 the R100R was BMW’s first purposely retro styled bike, the air cooled boxer twin engine had been in production so long it gained classic status almost by accident so it seemed sense to house it a retro looking bike. Production ran until 1996 by this time the more radical R1200C was on the drawing board as virtually every motorcycle manufacturer was now looking back as the way forward. Not much has changed.
This three owner from new example had been with the previous owner since 1996 and has only covered a genuine 6,000 miles backed up with eighteen old MoT’s. The current test valid until March 2017, it is supplied with all the factory books, service book, original tool kit and various bills for maintenance and service work. This example remains in generally good cosmetic order and had just received a full service, fitted with the optional extra of ‘City Case’ panniers this is a useable and not often seen ‘classic’.
