9780760344125: The Art of BMW: 90 Years of Motorcycle Excellence

The Art of BMW: 90 Years of Motorcycle Excellence presents stunning studio portraiture of the rolling sculpture that BMW has been creating for the past 90 years. Each bike portrait is accompanied by a concise, authoritative profile of the machine. All the classic bikes are here—pre-World War II BMWs like the R5 that defined performance in that era; the military R12 that carried the Wehrmacht as it blitzkrieged its way across Europe; the R75M that accompanied Rommel’s Panzers in North Africa; the Earles-forked R69S that offered the perfect platform for mounting a Steib sidecar; the R90S café racer; the K1 “flying brick”; and the GS (Gelände Sport) series that launched a dual-sport revolution. All the bike families are covered—the side-valve machines from the early years, the early overhead-valve performance bikes, the postwar Airheads and Oilheads, the four-cylinder and six-cylinder touring bikes, the early pushrod singles, the modern overhead-cam singles, the latest parallel twins, and inline-four cylinder sport bikes. From the first model, the R32 that launched BMW's motorcycle dynasty, to the latest (and fastest) model, the World Super Bike dominating S1000RR, this book captures nearly a century of motorcycling excellence.

From the Inside Flap:

 

Ever since Max Friz first mounted his innovative M2B32 opposed-twin engine in a motorcycle frame in 1923, the history of BMW motorcycles has been defined by a constant and relentless quest for perfection. In the 95 years that have followed, the company has created the most innovative and technologically advanced motorcycles produced anywhere on earth. BMW has earned a reputation for not doing things the way everyone else does, but its motorcycles aren’t different simply for the sake of being different. Each distinctive feature represents a brilliant and elegant solution to a real problem, leading BMW to be the first company to introduce many of the features that were later adopted by other manufacturers. But there’s more to a BMW motorcycle than innovation and technology—there’s also art. And as beautiful as the bikes are in their totality, they may be even more so when broken down into their individual details. This book captures the elegance of these amazing machines, both in their details and in the sum of their parts, through the masterful photography of Henry von Wartenberg and writing of author Peter Gantriis. The Art of BMW: Ninety Years of Motorcycling Excellence features the Peter Nettesheim collection, one of the world’s premier collections of BMW motorcycles. These wonderfully restored pieces exemplify the design and engineering prowess that have defined the BMW motorcycle tradition for almost a century. Photographer bio: Henry von Wartenberg was born in Mar del Plata, Argentina, in 1967 and has been a professional photographer since 1990. He worked as a photojournalist for Gente magazine for nine years before opening his own office near Buenos Aires in 1999. He has worked for many companies and publishers in Argentina and overseas, including Geographic Adventure magazine. With his publishing firm, Triple Ve Editores, he has also published several books of his photography: Red Deer-Stag Hunting in ArgentinaMotos Clasicas en Argentina, The Best of Argentine Polo, and Buenos Aires in Stone and Bronze. Henry lives in Tigre, Argentina, with his wife and two daughters. You can visit his website at www.henryvonwartenberg.com. Author bio: Peter Gantriis is founder and president of RPM Research LLC, a market research and consulting firm that works with the world’s leading automotive and powersports manufacturers. Peter earned an MBA from the University of Minnesota. He is an avid motorcycle enthusiast and lives in Mahtomedi, Minnesota.

 

From the Back Cover:

For 95 years, BMW has been building some of the world’s best motorcycles—an accomplishment that The Art of BMW: Ninety Years of Motorcycling Excellence celebrates with exquisite studio photographs along with a concise history of the legendary company and its classic motorcycles. From the company’s first model, the R32, to the bikes that catapulted it out of the ruins of World War II, through today’s race-winning superbikes and award-winning six-cylinder touring motorcycles—these are the bikes that have made BMW great.

Descrizione libro Motorbooks International. Hardback. Condizione libro: new. BRAND NEW, The Art of BMW: 90 Years of Motorcycle Excellence, Peter Gantriis, Henry von Wartenberg, Fred Jakobs, The Art of BMW is the ultimate visual guide to almost a century of motorcycle excellence from BMW. The Art of BMW: 90 Years of Motorcycle Excellence captures the essence of craft, performance and innovation that has marked out the German manufacturer's output since day one. Fully illustrated with Henry Von Wartenburg's stunning studio portraiture, and accompanied by concise, authoritative profiles of each machine, The Art of BMW takes stock of the rolling sculpture produced by one of the world's leading motorcycle manufacturers in the year of their 90th anniversary. All the classic bikes are here, from machines like the R5 that defined performance in the pre-World War II era, to the array of military machines that carried the Wehrmacht across Europe and North Africa; from the R90S cafe racer to the K1 "flying brick" and the GS (Gelande Sport) series that launched a dual-sport revolution. Included are examples of the major technical developments in different bike families that have contributed to BMW's renown: the early side-valve machines and overhead-valve performance bikes; the postwar Airheads and Oilheads; four-cylinder and six-cylinder touring bikes; pushrod singles; parallel twins; inline-four cylinder sport bikes and a host of others. From the model that launched BMW's motorcycle dynasty, the R32, to the latest (and fastest) model, the World Super Bike dominating S1000RR, this book captures nearly a century of motorcycling excellence.
