Available only in 1994 and 1995 in the US, the Mystic was a factory retro based on the BMW R100R. In a 1992 review, Bike magazine called it the best boxer. To make the R100R, BMW went with some old-school peanut valve covers and paired them with 40mm Bing carbs and their first usage of Japanese suspension. In many ways, it’s a street version of the R100GS.
According to The BMW Boxer Twins Bible by Ian Falloon, other changes for the Mystic included the red paint scheme, black frame, lower handlebars, restyled sidecovers/seat/tail section, shorter license plate bracket, a different angle for the muffler, and some chrome-plated pieces.
This example has approximately 37,000 miles and it comes with two different sets of bags – the regular BMW touring bags and the much rarer narrow “city” bags. It’s got a few new parts (tires, brake light, windscreen) and a custom seat. Find this R100R Mystic for sale here on ADVRider (registration required) in Atlanta, Georgia for $4,300.
