AGMC, the official importer of BMW Group vehicles for Dubai, Sharjah, and the Northern Emirates, is excited to announce the arrival of the new BMW Motorrad R18 across all AGMC showrooms.
Like no other BMW motorcycle before it, this model invokes the history and the iconic hallmarks of BMW Motorrad, with an elevated approach in terms of technology and design. Reinforcing this position, the motorcycle is powered by BMW’s most formidable engine and adorned in an elaborately crafted double-loop steel tube frame.
Characterised by its ability to take on any terrain, whether through the city roads or over desert dunes, BMW’s Motorrad R18 is unbeatably versatile. Equipped with the most powerful BMW 2-cylinder boxer engine of all time, the Motorrad R18’s unique roar echoes through the streets.
The 2-cylinder engine’s impressive appearance and technology reflect a continuation of the traditional air-cooled boxer engines that have offered an inspiring riding experience since BMW Motorrad began production in 1923. With new air/oil coolers and a significant increase of torque at lower speeds, the innovative technology of the engine provides a distinct riding performance and sovereignty – with less energy consumption.
A showstopper, the R 18, boasts the classic double striped and chromed design features of the celebrated BMW motorcycles that came before it. Defined by its outstanding manufacturing quality, the meticulous attention to detail is evident in unapparent features such as the welded joints between the steel tubes and the cast or forged parts.
While its design is alluring, the functionality of the model is impeccable, ergonomically designed the new BMW R 18 features an elongated and low slung flyline and a laid-back positioning of the footrests, which enables a relaxed and active riding position for optimum vehicle control.
With an unorthodox approach to versatility in this segment, the new R 18 offers three standard riding modes “Rain”, “Roll” and “Rock” which enable the model to adapt to individual rider preferences. The standard trim also includes ASC (Automatic Stability Control, disengageable), which ensures a high level of riding safety.
In addition, the new R 18 is equipped as standard with engine drag torque control (MSR). Among other options, a reverse assist makes manoeuvring convenient, while the Hill Start Control function facilitates uphill starts.
Ayhan Olcer, CEO of AGMC, says: “We are incredibly pleased to welcome the arrival of the new R18 across our showrooms. A spirited original, the R18, stunts a contemporary look with the classic accents. Ready to tackle any terrain that comes in its path, the motorcycle provides an invigorating driving experience. As the market demand for BMW Motorrad grows within the UAE, we are sure this motorcycle will prove to be an excellent addition to our vast collection of BMW Group brands.”
