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 Argentina"Motos 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.
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.Alle Produktbeschreibungen

Short-lived for sure but a very cool looking cruiser in my opinion. Maybe not well loved but this is called the "art" of bmw, no? Very cool book nonetheless and a must for any beemer owner.
The book won't cover absolutely every bike or sub group the company has made, but it does a great job of getting a great amount of the most popular and inspired vehicles BMW put two wheels on. It's not overly filled with info on each page, but doesn't lack in that department. It can be appreciated for either the pictures, the information, or both. My dad usually just puts the gifts he gets into "the collection" but this one is always out on a coffee table or the kitchen table. I've even caught my mom, who's more into gardening, browsing the book a little bit recently.
At around $30, this is a great gift idea for someone you know might appreciate it.
