The German motorcycle of BMW manufacture - R-12 - was produced from 1935 to 1942. During that period more than 36000 BMW R-12 were manufactured in both military and civilian variants. The sports variant of R-12 reached a speed record of 279.5 km/h which was held for 14 years! Because of high reliability and significantly lower cost in comparison with other army motorcycles (such as the BMW R-75 and KS-750), the BMW R-12 became the most mass produced motorcycle in the German army. The R-12 was used for delivery of ammunition and hot food, evacuation of wounded men to the rear, delivery of messages, and reconnaissance.
