1974 R90/6

1974 BMW R90/6


Replacements for the '/5' range, the BMW '/6' series arrived in October 1973. The newcomers were more sportily styled than the outgoing '/5's, boasting new side-panels and silencers, and totally restyled controls and instruments. Like their predecessors, the three '/6' flat twins shared an identical stroke; the 500cc model though, had been dropped in favour of the new 600cc R60/6, while at the top of the range was a new 900cc superbike: the BMW R90S. Apart from the updated styling, the presence of a disc front brake readily distinguished the '/6's, which also benefited from the new five-speed gearbox.
