WWII 1936 BMW Schneekrad
ER Classics Desktop 2022

Snowscooters: an early seventies invention that made Eskimos' lives easier? No, the need to get through snow and winter quickly had already been considered.

The makers of BMW thought about that. This BMW 'Schneekrad' can be seen as a loosely modified BMW R 12 (?). It appears that this appearance caused the enemy to run aground when they saw the thing coming.

BMW Motorrad is still proud of the fact that they make motorcycles for the army and other services. We read this on their facebook page:


“BMW Motorrad bikes make exceptional commuting tools and ideal workhorses for armed forces, regional service providers and emergency response teams. With years of experience in manufacturing motorcycles to suit work applications, demand for BMW Motorrad Authority motorcycles is booming. ”
