The BMW R1100R was a standard motorcycle produced by BMW in 1994 to replace the BMW R100R. It continued production until 1999 when it was replaced by the 2001 BMW R1150R. The model was produced in over 53,680 units at BMW's Spandau, Berlin factory.

In 1998, the German motorcycle manufacturer introduced the BMW R1100R 75th Anniversary, a special edition motorcycle created by the House of Munich to celebrate 75 years since the German maker designed and built motorcycles.

Compared to the base model, the special edition motorcycle came with a special color scheme, redesigned body elements, and various features and accessories previously offered as optional features.

The motorcycle's aesthetic department was complemented by standard fittings, like a round headlight with a chromed housing, instruments with chromed housings, a two-piece dual seat with a passenger grab handle, a two-into-one exhaust system, and wire-spoke wheels.

The 1998 BMW R1100R 75th Anniversary motorcycle packed a 1,085cc four-stroke air/oil-cooled twin-cylinder boxer engine with a fuel injection system feeding the pistons. It delivered an output power of 80 hp with maximum strength at 6,750 rpm and 98 Nm (72 lb-ft) torque at 5,250 rpm.

In the braking department, the bike's wheels were fitted with two 305 mm rotors squeezed by four-piston calipers on the front and a 276 mm disc operated by a dual-piston caliper.
