The R90 S was a 900 cc sports bike manufactured by BMW between 1973 and 1976. The large and aggressive stance, the “bikini” fairing and tail design gave this bike, and all BMW's models, a new look and new image. With a power output of 67 hp, the bike could reach a top speed of 200 km/h, with a 0-100 km/h time of just 4.8 seconds. The R90 S was powered by an air-cooled OHV engine with two valves per cylinder, married to a five-speed transmission with shaft final drive. This version was a series one, which featured an unusual dual-colour black smoke and silver paint-job with gold adhesive stripes.
