Top 10 Vehicles Powered By Motorcycle Engines
Jan 30, 2015 - 12:04 PM - by Motorcycle.com

Quote:
The history of motorcycle engines powering other vehicles goes back a long way. Look at the original Morgan 3 Wheeler, for example. Almost a century ago, J.A.P. bike engines were plunked onto the front of a strange piece of machinery with two wheels in front and one in the back. It proved to be popular and a rather high-performing vehicle in its time. For this Top 10 list we take a look at other applications for motorcycle engines. As you can imagine with a list like this, there are a wide variety of vehicles. Some are production cars, while others are one-offs or boutique items. And yes, even though this is Motorcycle.com, I want to get behind the wheel of every single one of these! So, if you’re a rep from one of the below companies (or are simply a kind soul who owns one), give me a jingle and let’s make it happen!

Small-Displacement BMW Spied Testing
Jan 28, 2015 - 4:39 PM - by Motorcycle.com

BMW previously announced it was working with TVS to develop sub-500cc motorcycles in 2013. Stephan Schaller, head of BMW’s motorcycle operations, has confirmed a target date of 2015 for the small-displacement models, and the test mule suggests the company is hard at work to reach that goal, with the official introduction likely coming at EICMA in November.

Larry Romestant’s SpecialK BMWs
Jan 21, 2015 - 12:42 PM - by Motorcycle.com

Quote:
BMW, having earned its logo emblem from a stylized spinning airplane propeller, took off in another direction when in 1923 the German company debuted its first motorcycle, the R32, featuring the now famous 'Boxer' air-cooled opposed-Twin engine: In this first iteration, it displaced 486cc and churned out 8.5 horsepower. For decades the “airhead” became the cherished mainstay of the Bayerische Motoren Werke (a.k.a. Bavarian Motor Works) while enjoying a non-stop evolution. But then in 1983 BMW took off on a design tangent that created a love-hate reaction still inciting strong reactions, and passions, especially from the BMW purists.
