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. ”
