BMW has been producing motorcycles for nearly 100 years, believe it or not. It debuted its first two-wheeled R32 motorcycle at the Berlin Motor Show
Suzuki Katana, and Yamaha’s first V-twin engines. Even the most ardent fans may have difficulty recalling the Futuro among the motorcycle industry’s titans.
