Both BMW and Audi are popular automobile companies. Both companies have their specific set of customers and offerings. In this article, we will simply try to see the general features of BMW bikes and Audi cars. We will try to see the strengths of both these automobiles.


BMW is an abbreviation for Bayerische Motoren Werke AG. The company has its headquarters in Germany and was founded back in the year 1916. The company is a luxury automaker and is considered as one of the best in this regard. BMW also has the privilege of being part of the Euro Stoxx 50 stock market index. BMW is also now the parent company of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. The company has two divisions. Motorcycles are produced by BMW Motorrad, and motorcars are produced by BMW Motorsport division.

BMW started manufacturing motorbikes in the 1920’s.


Comparing all the motorbikes would not be possible; here as a great example, I have taken the BMW S1000RR. Let’s take a look at some of the fantastic features of this bike:
–    Since the speed of the bike must be well controlled, the bike is equipped with electronic rider safety which protects the rider from any mishap. The weight of electronic rider safety is 2.5 kg which can be utilized effectively with DTC (dynamic traction control).
–    The bike has a discreet ABS with wonderful control intervals. The ABS is a lightweight which means that the bike is ideal for people who are fond of low-weight riding.
–    The bike is equipped with DTC which provides efficiency and reliability in terms of operating mode, speed, and lean angle.
–    The bike is equipped with mounted brake calipers. The feature helps the bike to get decelerate effectively. The brake rims are connected directly with the wheel rims, which not only look good but help in the reduction of unsprung mass.
–    The bike is equipped with bore/stroke ratio that provides stability during high speeds. The bike has a superlative engine which is one of its kind
–    The bike is equipped with slits that provide the rider with a relaxed head position. The slits also contribute towards an optimum air flow both for the bike as well as the rider. The overall design of the bike is well crafted and the look of the bike is simply awesome.
–    The seat position of the bike is sporty which means that riding this bike will provide you with perfect control as well as maximum enjoyment.


Audi is also a German manufacturer that is known for its engineering, distribution, production, and design of luxury vehicles. The company is the member of the Volkswagen Group and has its headquarters in Bavaria. There are 9 production facilities in the world which are known for producing Audi-branded vehicles.

Audi is one of the leading automotive manufacturers in the world.

Audi A4

In the case of Audi, I have taken the Audi A4 as a sample. Let’s see what this car has to offer:
–    The main feature for which the car is renowned is its road presence. The car is equipped with a radiator grill which has a single frame, containing the 4 easily recognisable overlapping rings which have helped to create Audi’s brand. The xenon headlamps further enhance the beauty of the car.
–    Additional width is provided to the car by solid wheel arches.
–    The cabin of this beautiful car is made up of leather. Apart from the cabin, the seats of the car are also well structured and are covered with leather too.
–    The Audi A4 is equipped with a 3.2 FSI Tiptronic Quattro engine. The engine has the ability to deliver the power of 265 PS @ 6500 rpm. The engine also has a torque of 330 Nm @ 3000 rpm.
–    The car has the ability to accelerate up to 100 km/h in 6.4 seconds.
–    The car has a wonderful balance and you can enjoy a smooth drive no matter what kind of terrain you are driving on.


Both Audi and BMW have their own strengths, as a purchaser, you need to decide which brand suits your personality. There are many models produced by both of them, and the above mentioned were discussed so that you may get some an idea about the offerings of both companies. There are many out there who think that it is not correct to compare a car and a bike. I also agree with this notion, however, this is not a rule of thumb and in some cases such as this, such a comparison can provide meaningful insights.
