In 1974, BMW logically replaced the /5 series with the /6, which lasted until 1976. There were no huge differences, the new series still featured the mighty flat-twin engine and the same kind of look. After the success of the R75/5, BMW still had to innovate in order to please the riders. To this end, BMW implemented a front disc brake instead of the drum, and two distinct counters for the speed and the RPMs.
With its 749cc engine, the R75/6 confirmed BMW’s ability to combine comfort and power. The flat-twin developed 50hp and could make the 462 lb bike reach a top speed of 110mph. The bike was said to be very reassuring and well balanced, and therefore as good in twisties as on freeways. Read the inspiring story of Bill Kniegge and his R75/6 on Motorcycle Classics.
