Developed from the single-cylinder R20 of 1937/38, itself a development of BMW's best-selling R2, the R23 was produced between 1938 and 1940, 8,021 examples being sold. Powered by an overhead-valve engine producing 10hp, the R23 came with a four-speed gearbox and featured shaft drive like the larger models. Weight with a full tank of fuel was 135kg and the top speed around 95km/h.

This R23 is an older restoration and is a good runner.
