The "slash seven" development was an evolutionary change of the BMW 247 engine from the previous "slash six" and initially constituted the R 100 RS (51 kW / 70 PS), R 100 S (only 48 kW / 65 PS), R 100 (44 kW / 60 PS), R 75/7 (37 kW / 50 PS) and R 60/7 (30 kW / 40 hp).

The R 100 RS was the first motorcycle with standard frame fixed full fairing. This innovation was a departure from previous touring fairings, giving birth to the modern Sport touring motorcycle.
