Big Boxer Coming to the BMW Motorrad R 18 Lineup

2020 BMW Concept R 18 Big Boxer

It was only last year that the BMW R 18 Concept debuted. Already, it’s become the pinnacle of passion and creativity. Now, it’s time to take a peek at what’s coming to the R 18 Series for sale near Corona, CA at BMW Motorcycles of Riverside.

Redesigned Classic for Today’s Driver

When the R 18 was introduced, the BMW Motorrad Heritage lineup got better. This high-capacity two-cylinder boxer engine is the best ever made. That’s why it has earned the name, Big Boxer. The OHV drive combines with a separate engine housing and transmission to offer the same features from the original boxer. With this 802 cc engine, you will notice a 107.1 mm bore and a 100 mm stroke. Altogether, it produces 91 horsepower plus 158 Nm of torque, making it the bike to own near Ontario, CA.

In addition, this Boxer is oil- and air-cooled, with large ribbed cylinders. Above all, it’s exceptionally lightweight and uses a vertically split engine housing that is made from aluminum. The biggest difference over the other air-cooled BMW two-valve boxer engines is that the crankshaft comes forged from quenched and tempered steel. Plus, it contains a main bearing in the center that helps to handle more cylinder volume.

This Big Boxer also contains four valves, dual ignition, an intake manifold injection and a modern combustion chamber, while still using the classic OHV setup. BMW has been using this configuration for seventy years, further proving why it continues to lead the pack. Today is a great day to buy a new bike in Riverside, CA.
