BMW Motorrad UK has created four exclusive models - the Iconic 100 Collection - to mark the centenary of BMW Group in 2016. Each is strictly limited to 100 motorcycles. 

The four special editions are based on the highest specification models in their respective ranges, made unique with paint schemes which evoke the models' predecessors and the long, rich heritage of BMW Motorrad and the BMW Group over the past century.

Each Iconic 100 Collection model is an exclusive opportunity to own a piece of history that offers all the benefits of the most modern and class-leading motorcycles in the 2016 BMW Motorrad range. Each of the four Iconic models will be individually numbered from 1 to 100.

Following their debut at the MCN London Motorcycle Show where the Iconic Collection were a huge hit, we expect them to sell out. Customers interested in owning one should contact their local BMW Motorrad Retailer to place an order.

  1. Smacks of having difficulty shifting machines out of the showroom so goto usual marketing tactic of "limited edition". It they sell well then extend the 100 run to 500, not so limited.

    1. Hi Phil, thanks for your comment. There are no plans to extend beyond the 100 Limited Edition production and these are currently some of our highest selling models. We've produced the Iconic 100 to celebrate 100 years of BMW and we're very proud of what we've created.

  2. All the old models have silver engines, yet the GS has Black ? Not very in keeping with the Iconic 100 years

  3. Great bikes but not sure the luxuary touch gels with the utilitarian image of the GS. A bit out of place at the silk road. ;-)

  4. I think they look brilliant a bit of style and something different never hurt anyone. You don't have to buy, its not compulsory!

  5. Not sure why people can't just have some positive things to say.

  6. And you have joined them, Jason.

    I'll say something positive, then.
    A Penny-Farthing bicycle would be a worse thing to spend me money on.

  7. Love to see this treatment on a F700 and 800GS as well

  8. Nice models. Love the red seat on the GS and the 3colour always suits these bikes. Migth upgrade my GS 2005 to this edition.

  9. hi!

    i want to buy this which seri number 76 . Can you qoute to my email tequilaluan@yahoo.com

  10. I got GS number 16. It's gorgeous. No, I will never take it off road or even get it wet if I can help it. I have other bikes for that.☺

  12. When will R1200RT LE Candy Burgundy Smoked color be available in the USA? The color is awesome.

  13. The Juice Box 3 Software for the BMW 135 is a popular upgrade over the factory software. This system is fully reversible and has several map settings depending on what BMW modifications you have on the car. used car dealerships near me
