To be perfectly honest, we did not know that BMW makes a myriad of products that aren’t high-end vehicles. It turns out that the German manufacturer has an entire line of apparel and accessories.
BMW also happens to sell a number of non-motorized bicycles. Our go to choice would be the 2012 BMW Mountain Bike Enduro, which is actually a massive overhaul of BMW’s 2011 version. They gave it a fully updated design and material upgrades. The Enduro comes with an all-aluminum frame for lightness and rigidity and Fox forks for suspension. Shimano XT and Deore XT components make up the gears and shifting, respectively. It also comes with Crank Bros. wheels, and all of this weighs about 32 pounds. We will note that different components would have made the bike lighter, but Shimano and Deore do make quality products that inevitably add some heft.
Enduro bikes come in matte black with neon green highlights. Of course, like any BMW product, you’re going to pay for their luxury: the Enduro comes in at just over $4500.
