New BMW R 18

Come and meet the New BMW R18 First Edition, the first BMW Motorrad Custom.

At BMW Oliva Motor Girona we have had the pleasure of having the New BMW R18 First Edition for the first time at the first national exhibition at our dealership in Salt.

In addition, we will also have the model exclusively on the 20th, 21st and 22nd at our Les Gavarres dealership, at BMW Oliva Motor Tarragona.

This model fully follows the tradition of historic BMW motorcycles as an exceptional cruiser with historical roots, both in technical and design terms. It borrows technological and visual aspects from famous models like the BMW R 5 to refocus attention on the essentials of the motorcycle: purist technology without unnecessary frills and the boxer engine as the epicenter of driving pleasure, all accompanied by “good vibes ”.

It is the most powerful BMW boxer engine of all time and the centerpiece of the new BMW R 18 is a new 2-cylinder boxer engine: the “Big Boxer”. Both its impressive looks and technology reflect a continuation of traditional air-cooled boxer engines, which have provided an inspiring driving experience since BMW Motorrad began production in 1923. The most powerful 2-cylinder boxer engine ever used in production series motorcycles has a displacement of 1,802 cc. Maximum power is 67 kW (91 hp) at 4,750 rpm. At speeds between 2,000 and 4,000 rpm, torque in excess of 150 Nm is always available, and this elemental pulling force is combined with a resounding, resonant sound.
