    1974 BMW R 90S 1974 BMW R 90S On pure performance. BMW's R90S was not the fastest superbike of the mid-1970s. Nor was it the quickest around a racetrack: at least, not often. But for a rider with a long distance to travel on straight roads and twisty ones, there was nothing on two wheels that would prove faster or more comfortable than the uniquely well-equipped flat twin.
    1974 BMW R90S 1974 BMW R90S The BMW's distinctive smoked paint scheme was perfectly in keeping with its image as a very refined and expensive sports-tourer. In many respects, the R90S was the best all-round superbike of its day. Certainly, no other production machine could match its combination of I25mph (2()lkm/h) top speed, relaxed high-speed cruising ability, fine handling, reliability and impeccable finish.
