The /5 was the first new BMW motorcycle design for nearly two decades, and the basic design would last for more than 25 years. Replacements for the /5 range, the BMW /6 series arrived in October 1973. The newcomers were more sportily styled than the outgoing 5s, boasting new side-panels and silencers, and totally restyled controls and instruments. Like their predecessors, the three /6 twins shared an identical stroke; the 500cc model though, had been dropped in favor of the new 600cc R60/6, while at the top of the range there was a new 900cc superbike: the R90S. Apart from the updated styling, the presence of a disc front brake readily distinguished the 6s, which also benefited from the new five-speed gearbox.
This R75/6 has been recently restored and is in absolute mint condition. It is offered with German registration papers.
NB: De "750cc" decals on the side-panels will be placed soon.
