The wait is finally over! SMC Asia Car Distributors Corporation, the exclusive distributor of BMW Motorrad in the Philippines, is set to launch the brand's biggest and baddest boxer to date, the R 18, this coming Saturday, December 12, 2020.
First revealed during last year’s Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, the R 18 boasts of a massive 1,800 cc boxer engine, which is the biggest horizontally-opposed engine BMW has ever produced in the last 137 years. The new model hopes to challenge American cruiser heavyweights, Harley-Davidson and Indian, with its blend unique engineering, customizability, and reliability.
While the new BMW R 18 could be considered an homage to the classic, purist, and no-frills BMW motorcycles of old, it is not without the latest technology that BMW has to offer, like riding modes, traction control, ABS, and even a reverse assist feature.
Catch the official unveiling at 8:00 PM Saturday, live from BMW Motorrad PH's official social media page.
