Ooops, now that’s embarrassing, we stand corrected…

Bimmer vs Beamer vs Beemer

To put it simply, BMW automobiles are called Bimmers. BMW motorcycles are called Beemers (or Beamers).

The term Beemer was first used with motorcycles. The legend goes that when British bikes were popular and the company baa was a well-known manufacturer, riders would often refer to them as Beezers, sort of a way to say BSA as a word. BMW riders then co-opted the word Beemer, as a way of saying BMW as a word. Since BMW manufactured motorcycles well before their automobiles became popular, whenever the word Beemer was said, it was in reference to their motorcycles.

For an unknown reason, when BMW automobiles came about, people started referring to them as Bimmers. Although it doesn’t make much sense why the originators didn’t just call all BMW products Beemers, the names were unofficially designated back in the 40’s and 50’s, and it doesn’t seem right to argue with half a century of tradition.
