The updated version of the Big Boxer engine made available in BMW Motorrad’s BMW R 18 Series builds on the innovations used in the production of the brand’s concept motorcycles and concept bikes like the Concept R 18 and the Concept R 18 /2.

There are a few notable design details that contribute to the Big Boxer’s capabilities. The designers have retained workable design elements that have distinguished the engine’s predecessors like the laterally-controlled valves.
The engine’s success in extraordinary pulling power is made possible due to the OHV valve drive together with individually-housed engine and transmission. This forward-thinking approach also delivers on running smoothness, enhanced performance and boost in torque production.
Other engineering tweaks used to produce the latest Big Boxer engine, include an air/oil cooling system, relatively large-sized ribbed cylinders and cylinder heads, as well as a crankshaft manufactured from quenched and tempered steel.
The Concept R 18 is arguably the best example of all modern-day BMW motorcycle productions that offers the ultimate translation from the well-loved BMW motorcycle classic models to contemporary models that define the modern era. The concept motorcycle recalls all the essential features, and thanks to the updated two-cylinder engine, the Big Boxer is able to offer technical superiority as well.
In driving motorcycle engineering advancements, the BMW Group has still managed to retain in its vision its commitment to sustainable value and product responsibility.
