The new engine from BMW was lit on two concepts and a couple of custom. The power unit is the largest and most powerful boxer engine in the history of the German brand.

EICMA was intended as a venue for the presentation of the production version of the Bavarian cruiser, but the company continues to languish the audience in anticipation. In Milan, they showed the concept of the BMW R18 / 2 cruiser, whose appearance is as close as possible to the exterior of the “muscular” version of the factory motorcycle. They also talked about the characteristics of the engine, without exaggeration called Big Boxer.

The 1802-cc air-oil-cooled power unit with four valves per cylinder has a cylinder diameter of 107.1 millimeters and a piston stroke of 100 millimeters. He is the largest boxer engine among the serial in history.

The power unit develops a power of 91 horsepower at 4750 rpm and 158 Nm of torque at 3000 rpm, with more than 150 Nm available in the range of 2000-4000 rpm. As much as possible, this engine of colossal dimensions does not seem to be inferior to the size of a small engine, develops 5750 rpm.

 Together with the gearbox and intake system, the opposite weighs 110.8 kg.
