A no-nonsense, straightforward guide to buying a BMW airhead


 

BMW OHV airhead Boxer twins are quite simply great all-round motorcycles. We've owned a few, broke a few, fixed a few and we've ridden thousands of miles on them. Yes, they can go wrong, but not often; not if they're sorted. The thing is, it's not always easy telling the purring pussy cats from the barking dogs, which is why you need a buyer's guide to help show you what to watch out for.

 

The 450cc R45 is the underrated runt of the litter. It's a great commuter bike and modest touring mount that's understressed and capable of 85 - 90mph. The 1,000cc R100, meanwhile, will carry two people and bags of luggage effortlessly (and at high sustained speeds) across continents. In between are a range of models that comfortably fill in the gaps.

Peter Henshaw's guide doesn't cater for the GS models. But all the other OHV airheads are described here in considerable detail.

 

You can go ahead and take a chance on getting the right bike at the right price. Or you can go prepared. We've got these books in stock and ready to despatch.

 

Finally, note that we reviewed this publication back in May 2017, and we haven't changed our opinion of it. It's a fair and useful guide, albeit not without its faults. But you're better off with it than without it.
