BMW Motorrad History
It started with the event, which took place January 2, 1917: the day 33-year-old graduate engineer Max Fritz started his job at BMW. Shortly before he quit his old job, selling of opinion with his boss Paul Daimler in Stuttgart. As it turned out, it was on hand BMW. In fact, after the ban on the construction of aircraft and aircraft engines of the Treaty of Versailles on June 28, 1919 the very existence BMW has been put into question. Then Max Fritz, meanwhile became chief designer for BMW, with his head went into work on motorcycles. Already in December 1922, just four weeks after receipt of order, Fritz was ready drawing of the BMW to the original value. His heart was a new drive concept - the BMW boxer engine coupled to the driveshaft. Max Fritz Schwab ingeniously managed to create a harmonious concept motorcycle, bringing together well-known components, and placing them in new ways. The two cylinder boxer engine was not installed longitudinally, like most other manufacturers, and across the direction of travel, which contributed to their better cooling ram air. The box was docked to the motor and the drive is carried out directly from the longitudinally extending crankshaft. Instead of the usual chain drive at the first BMW direct transfer of torque to the rear wheels provide the driveshaft. These three components are the basic concept of BMW motorcycles proved themselves over for more than 75 years and is still used in today's opposing models.
