“From 1952-1954, the R68 was BMW’s first post-war sports model Based on the touring R67/2 it was tuned to compete with Britain’s faster twins with bigger valves, more cam, compression, carb size, advance, a special exhaust and a stronger crankshaft. Promoted as ‘The 100-mph Motorcycle’ BMW’s R68 only trailed the Vincent for cross-country speed”
