After ninety years in business and first-to-market motorcycle innovations like the one-piece 'tunnel' crankcase, hydraulically dampened front forks and full fairings, as well as that trademark boxer engine, BMW Motorrad is celebrating its nonagenarian status with a video: You can follow the ride on BMW motorcycles from 1923 to now in just 90 seconds.

Okay, so there's more than a video – some anniversary-themed bikes and a new retro boxer model celebrating the R 32 "airhead' from 1923 also commemorate the occasion. But you can start with the video, and that's below.

      So where's the "retro" boxer model? I'm real curious what direction they will take with that.

      The HP4 is a beast. Far more impressive than what they put out on 4 wheels.

      This was more like 60 years in 90 seconds -- considering the bikes they showed.
