"Its predecessor, the BMW R 50 S, was already becoming outdated when BMW introduced the new top model, the BMW R 69 S, in 1960. The R
69 S’s 595 ccm3, air-cooled, 2-cylinder boxer engine produced 42 HP and, according to the BMW
manual, enabled its proud owner to reach
top speeds of 175 kilometres per hour when the rider was recumbent and 160 kilometres per hour when they were sitting upright. This
made the R 69 S one of the fastest street motorcycles of the sixties. As the first motorcycle in BMW’s motorcycle history, the R 69 S
could also be ordered in an elegant ivory colour at the customer’s request. Introduced in 1960 at a price of 4,030 German marks, over
11,000 units of the R 69 S had been sold before it ceased production in 1969."
