During the 1930s BMW was very much a pioneer of motoring innovation as it is today.
In 1935, BMW produced an industry first with hydraulically damped telescopic forks on a motorcycle. By 1938 it had put a plunger spring frame on a production bike. The following year 1939, BMW riders took first and second place at the Isle of Man Senior TT.

After World War II, BMW's factory near Munich was largely intact but the allies did not allow the manufacturer to resume motorcycle production. However, by 1947 these restrictions had eased, allowing motorcycles up to 250cc in capacity to be built. BMW introduced the R24 in 1948, powered by a 250cc overhead valve engine with a 4 speed gearbox and the legendary BMW shaft drive.

The R25 arrived Less than 18 months later and featured a welded steel twin-loop tubular frame and a plunger-style rear suspension with a claimed 12HP at 5600 rpm.

Our 1953 example is of the improved R25/2 version introduced during 1951. This model incorporated a stronger crankshaft and minor revisions to the front mudguard stays and seat springing. During the period from 1951-53 BMW produced over 38,000 R25/2 machines which gained a reputation for their reliability and quality. For the past seven years it has resided in the South of France with its ex-pat British owner. It is one of two motorcycles we have taken in part-exchange against a pre-war car. Having had little use in the past few years this delightful restored example is now being carefully recommissioned ready for its new owner.
