While the gs and other BMW motorcycles enjoy a large and loyal following, two-wheel enthusiasts are less familiar with the German vehicle maker’s nonmotorized bikes. The BMW M Bike, which debuted in June, is the latest product of the company’s occasional efforts in the realm of performance bicycles, a tradition that dates to the 1950s. The new bike features an aluminum frame coated with matte anthracite, a form of hard coal that lends an understated silken sheen to the cycle. A front suspension from Wisconsin-based Manitou provides a smooth ride, while a gear system from Japanese manufacturer Shimano offers 27 gears for a broad range of pedal control. Priced at approximately $1,800, the M Bike is available through BMW’s online store and select BMW dealerships.
