BMW started making motorcycles in the 1920s, and the German military quickly saw its value for communications and reconnaissance thanks to their high-speed and excellent maneuverability. All told, BMW would deliver some 36,000 R-12 motorcycles to the German military by the time they invaded the Soviet Union in 1941. Equipped with a 2-cylinder 745cc engine, the R12 could manage speeds up to 100 kilometers per hour and had a range of more than 250 kilometers. Many were fitted with a sidecar, allowing the motorcycle to handle up to three passengers. The sidecar could also be used as a mount for a 7.92mm machinegun, creating a mobile infantry support weapon. The R12 motorcycle proved to be a reliable vehicle that was popular with the German Wehrmacht. They would serve in every front of the war, from the frozen Russian steppe to the blazing Sahara desert.
