BMW R12 | Germany πŸ‡©πŸ‡ͺ, 1939.
In 1935, R12, one of the most mass motorcycles of the BMW brand, was born. Over the years of preparation for the Second World War, more than 36,000 (!) R12 motorcycles were produced in solo versions or with a sidecar, civil and military versions, models with one (18 hp) and two (20 hp) carburetors. The engine was very reliable, started without any troubles at any time of the year, had good torque and did not overheat.
In the BMW BlΓ€tter magazine (1935) about BMW R12: “In general, the design is extremely sturdy, so that the fork with its elasticity provides a sufficient level of safety. Suspension works fast, but the recoil is so much muffled that the motorcycle becomes “glued” to the ground so you can go without drifting on potholes at full speed. The machine also makes incredible turns.”.
