About the BMW brand
BMW can trace its roots back to 1916, when they began producing airplane engines. This short-lived production was halted at the end of World War I due to the Versailles Armistice Treaty. Once restrictions of the treaty were lifted, the company began to manufacture motorcycles, and soon after, automobiles. BMW briefly returned to airplane engine production during World War II, but after reconstruction continued making the automobiles and motorcycles that they are known for today.
