Engine & drivetrain
Character is an important factor in motorcycle engines and riders should be able to sense this when riding – like with the superior kick two-cylinder opposed-twin engines have provided since time immemorial. Alternatively BMW Motorrad four-cylinders offer a smooth high-performance power train with a virtually limitless speed bandwidth and power across the entire range. Or else there is the superior, powerful six-cylinder engine – a benchmark for design and operational smoothness when it comes to motorcycle design. At the same time an engine is most enjoyable when the owner has little to do because it combines high running performances with low maintenance and reliability ensuring trouble-free operation over many years.
