BMW (acronym for Bayerische Motoren Werke) is a German manufacturer of cars and motorcycles, headquartered in Monaco of Bavaria. BMW Motorrad is the name with which in 2007 was formed a business unit headed by a division of BMW, destined to follow explicitly the motorcycle market. The names of the newer models mostly follow a categorization of easy interpretation: beyond the type of engine, this is an indication of the displacement and a combination of letters that makes infer the type of use.
