How do you put a price on prestige and quality? If someone built a pushrod, twin-cylinder motor cycle with an Engine: whose basic design was decades old, and marketed it at a price many hundreds of pounds higher than its rivals, would it sell? All logic says that it shouldn’t, but that is exactly what the BMW motor cycle company does for a living and a very good living it makes too. BMW’s secret is that its bikes have proved their quality and dependability over the Year: s. In absolute terms, the company doesn’t make a great many bikes and their exclusivity, quality and high price has given BMW the kind of image that is usually associated with Rolls-Royce, caviar and the executive jet set.
