The BMW R1100RS was a sport-touring or standard motorcycle introduced by BMW in 1993 as a replacement for the BMW R100RS, continuing production until 2001 when it was replaced by the BMW R1150RS.

In 1998, the German motorcycle manufacturer introduced the BMW R1100RS 75th Anniversary, a special edition version of the base R1100RS, created by the House of Munich to celebrate 75 years of building and designing motorcycles.

Compared to the standard R1100RS model, the special edition motorcycle featured a special paint job and several features and accessories formerly offered as optional equipment.

In the visual department, the bike was fitted with standard features, such as a full fairing, a small windscreen, a two-piece dual seat with a passenger grab handle, a two-into-one exhaust system, side-mounted panniers, a top box, and three-spoke lightweight aluminum wheels.

In the performance department, the 1998 BMW R1100RS 75th Anniversary had installed a 1,085cc four-stroke twin-cylinder air-cooled boxer engine underneath its fuel tank, boasting 90 hp at 7,250 rpm and 95 Nm (70 lb-ft) torque at 5,500 rpm.

The power generated by the engine was converted into motion by a five-speed manual transmission with a dry single-plate clutch and a final shaft drive, spinning the rear wheel to a top speed of 219 kph (136 mph).
