A couple decades before Bob Lutz became a well-known name in the US Auto Industry, he was cutting his teeth at BMW's automotive division in German. On weekends he toured Europe on his motorcycle. The Japanese motorcycles invasion had basically shuttered the English motorcycle manufactures and made BMW the motorcycle of pipe smoking professors. Lutz got with a couple other riders in BMW's management came up with a plan to move BMW motorcycles into the modern era. The R90S was the plan. BMW used high compression pistons, Del Orto carbs, and a free flow exhaust to coax an impressive 67 hp out of the 90S' 898 cc four-stroke twin. The power made the bike good for 200 kph but more importantly the engine had exceptional touring smoothness. Performance was so good a pair of R90Ss finished 1st and 2nd in the Superbike class at Daytona in 1976 with 90S rider Reg Pridmore winning the 1976 championship. BMW R90S design is credited to German Industrial designer Hans Furth. The R90s was the first of two iconic motorcycle designs credited to Furth, the second being the mold braking Suzuki Katana. Featuring low bars with a bikini fairing and 90S molded into the rear ducktail, the 90S bike looked the part of a café racer while riding like a world class sports bike. Our R90S is part of our personal collection. The model was only made in two colors. Our's is the more popular Smoke Black with Silver highlighted with gold pinstripes. It was thoroughly refurbished and is in excellent condition. Mechanically it is also in excellent condition. These BMWs are rarely available and almost never seen in this condition. They are readily recognized and appreciated by motorcycle aficionados. This is a bike you will be glad you bought. $19,500
