In 1991 BMW introduced the R100R. This model was essentially the first boxer after the K-series that had been revised both technically and optically. It featured the new parelever system, a wider rear tyre and spoke wheels. It also had the still very popular retro-style rocker covers. In addition, the R100R was equipped with a "Sekundär Luft System": a catalytic converter that reduced pollutants from the exhausts. While BMW was already developing the new generation of four-valves-per-cylinder boxer twins, these old-style twin-cylinders represented just about the ultimate development of the traditional boxer and, due to its huge success, a total of 20,589 items have been produced.
A slight variation on the R100R was the Mystic which was introduced in 1993. Although very much the same as the original R100R, it did have a somewhat simplified appearance and featured a brand new two-in-one exhaust system, leaving the paralever system more exposed. As only 3,700 have been produced, this model is somewhat hard to come by these days.
