A BIT OF HISTORY:
Back in 1981, at $6345, the BMW R100RT was the most expensive line production motorcycle in the world-only the
Harley-Davidson FLH Classic, at $5529, was even close. The Harley World is a universe unto itself and was
therefore exempt, at least in the minds of its supporters, from the odious comparisons of the competitive
marketplace. The Electra Glide was the Electra Glide. and if you liked the way you looked on it, well they only
came from one place; here is what you paid, and that's all there was to it.
The BMW -- all BMWs -- have a foot in the door of the same exclusive clubhouse, but what keeps them
from getting in all the way is their time-honored emphasis on function. It has never been enough for a
BMW to simply be German, and a BMW; it has to do well all those things that superior motorcycles do at
all, and add the dimensions of resale value, longevity, manufacturing quality, uniqueness and a kind of
passive haughtiness that makes it reasonable to hold one in the same esteem that, earned or not,
surrounds the Mercedes-Benz.
The 1981 RT could best be described as a full-house touring version of the RS, which was a semi-touring
version of the S, which was a sporting version of the pipe rack Rl00T, which was a bunged-out version of the
R80/7, which was a slightly overbored and subtly refined update on the discontinued 750cc model.
