Since its presentation at the Brussels Motor Show in 1955, the R 69 immediately won the favor of the public, despite its high price, for its strong propensity for long-range touring, tackled at unknown averages for the time.
At BMW it was considered the turning point, especially for the innovative Earles fork that gave the beautiful R69 priceless comfort.
The transmission was the very strong cardan joint, with a sliding type joint that would remain unchanged until 1987, when the double joint was introduced.
The high-quality R69 could be combined with the classic Steib sidecar manufactured in Nuremberg, an option very popular in Northern European markets. Production of the very expensive R69 ended in 1960 with 2965 units produced, most of which destined for the US market.
