Manufactured from 1991 to 1995, the BMW R100R was the last air-cooled BMW model with a two-valve engine. Known for its smooth ride, reliability, and classic styling, the R100R had a 980cc engine that produced 60 horsepower and had a top speed of around 110 miles per hour. A unique feature of the R100R was the “Monolever” rear suspension system, which used a single-sided swingarm to reduce weight and improve handling. The R100R came standard with Akront tubeless wider profile rims that further added to the modern features that BMW outfitted this bike with.
With a comfortable seating position and a notoriously smooth transmission, the R100R is a go-to vintage motorcycle for the everyday rider.
