2022 BMW R 18 and R 18 Classic

BMW 2022 Model Announcement
2022 BMW R 18

Expected Availability: Q4 2021

Base MSRP: TBA

Equipment Changes: Reverse assistance and black drivetrain.

Color Schemes: Galaxy Dust Metallic/Titanium Silver 2 Metallic has been added as optional color scheme (see Upgrade Packages), and the First Edition scheme is no longer available.

Updated Upgrade Packages:
Option 719 Design Package AERO – The Option 719 Design Package AERO includes cylinder head covers, front engine cover and left and right intake snorkel covers in aluminum with a brushed, anodized finish. The cylinder head covers feature finely wrought air vents reminiscent of the “streamliners” of the 1920s and 1930s. The highlight is a badge on the front and side covers: This is made of solid copper which is chrome-plated and partially finished in white. The white paint enclosing the number sequence “719” is reminiscent of historical emblems that were typically lined with enamel during that era.

Option 719 seat – The Option 719 seat is an exclusive alternative to the standard seat found on the R 18 and R 18 Classic. In addition to the standard seat height, it offers diamond-shaped quilted embossing and an embroidered BMW logo and the 719 emblem on the side.

Option 719 Paint finish Galaxy Dust metallic/ Titanium Silver 2 metallic – Galaxy Dust metallic is a finish that changes in color spectrum from violet to turquoise blue, depending on the light. In addition, the color pigment creates a unique visual effect when exposed to sunlight. This special finish is combined with a Titanium Silver 2 metallic mirror on the fuel tank. The transition between the two-color surfaces consists of a hand-applied smoke effect familiar from the legendary R 90 S. In addition, the mirror surface is surrounded by a classic white double pin stripe.

Option 719 Wheels AERO and ICON – The two Option 719 wheels – AERO and ICON in matt silver and matt black, respectively, provide a refined and sophisticated look to the R 18 and R 18 Classic. The cast alloy wheels feature a six-spoke design. The milled ribs of the spokes are a real eye-catcher. The milled areas give the aluminum a contrast to the painted surfaces – hence the name Contrast Cut.

New 2022 BMW M 1000 RR

The new M RR uses the S 1000 RR’s water-cooled four-cylinder in-line engine with BMW ShiftCam technology for varying valve timing and valve lift that has been modified comprehensively. With a claimed peak power of 212 HP and maximum torque of 113 Nm, the M RR engine has undergone extensive technical optimization. Including new 2-ring forged pistons from Mahle, adapted combustion chambers, increased compression, longer and lighter titanium connecting rods from Pankl, slimmer and lighter rocker arms, fully machined intake ports with new duct geometry, as well as a titanium exhaust system.

In addition to a race specified engine, body styling has been heavily influenced by the track. M winglets and high windscreen promise later braking and earlier accelerating with more stability in the corners thanks to the aerodynamic downforce without increasing drag.

Other notable features include two adjustable characteristic throttle curves for optimum response characteristics, threefold adjustable engine braking, quickhifter, incorporated pit lane speed-limiter, hill start assistance, race inspired chassis design and geometry, optimized wheel load distribution and extended adjustability of the swinging arm pivot point. In addition the 6.5-inch TFT display with exclusive M logo animation and OBD interface that can be used with activation code for the M GPS data logger and M GPS laptrigger.
