4.0 out of 5 stars Remember this is not a history book!
The photos are excellent in terms of clarity and detail. The accompanying text is useful in terms of information concerning each model included in the book and also in terms of the development of BMW as a company (for those who are not already members of the BMW Appreciation Society). Given that the book only covers the models within one person's private collection...

3.0 out of 5 stars Good photos, poor text
Nice photos (but example of R90s disappointing) but text is poor- all about marketing BMWs and pretty dull too. Nothing about the 'art'. I was expecting something much more cultural/ design based.

4.0 out of 5 stars Remember this is not a history book!, 3 Jun 2013

This review is from: The Art of BMW: 90 Years of Motorcycle Excellence (Hardcover)
The photos are excellent in terms of clarity and detail. The accompanying text is useful in terms of information concerning each model included in the book and also in terms of the development of BMW as a company (for those who are not already members of the BMW Appreciation Society). Given that the book only covers the models within one person's private collection (albeit one heck of a collection!) it should not be bought on the basis of thinking it represents a definitive history of BMW motorcycles - buy it, dip into it when the fancy takes you, skip the models that you may not personally find interesting, and enjoy it for what it is.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well written and beautifully produced, 8 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Art of BMW: 90 Years of Motorcycle Excellence (Hardcover)
If you are a BMW Motorrad owner or enthusiast then this lovely book should be on your coffee table. Beautifully illustrated and with detailed text and historical background, the only disappointment was that some models of particular historical note are missed out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Why I like 'The Art of BMW' by Mr Alsatian., 21 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Art of BMW: 90 Years of Motorcycle Excellence (Hardcover)
This is a lovely book to dip into at leisure, you can always find a new piece of information each time. Very well photographed,, its a delight to own books like this, and a solid reason why electronic books will never take over!

Bought this for my dad's birthday to celebrate his new BMW, had a look through it myself. The photographs are beautiful, and the accompanying text is interesting. Enjoyable read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect gift, 27 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Art of BMW: 90 Years of Motorcycle Excellence (Hardcover)
It was a Christmas Gift and recipient, a BMW owner/rider was obviously delighted - especially when he found his bike was one of those featured. I rated it 5 stars because it fitted the bill exactly for one of the most difficult to buy for people on my gift list.
