Benefits compared to which other BMW engine? The original 1100 oilhead was a big step up in sophistication from the airheads.

The R1100xx were 5 speeds, the 1150 started the 6 speed era (aside from the R1100S).
The 1150 oilhead was in production for a long time....then came the R1200 'hex head'.
IBA #11735 . 1968-present
