BMW Motorrad President Stephen Shaller announced at the EICMA international motorcycle show in Milan that the company would present a new air-cooled boxer model in 2013. It's intended to mark BMW Motorrad's 90th anniversary.

The R 32 the first BMW motorcycle in 1923 and it provided the genetic code for the company's boxer series for nine decades: an air-cooled, two-cylinder four-stroke boxer engine with longitudinally mounted crankshaft in a boxer format with shaft drive to the rear wheel.

Although built to 90 year old principles, the new motorcycle will express the genes of 90 years of BMW Motorrad combined with emotional styling and innovative technology. More details will be released before the model's launch.
