The BMW R 18 is now available in the country.
SMC Asia Car Distributors Corp., official distributor of BMW automobiles and motorcycles, said that with the local launch of the R 18, BMW Motorrad has entered the cruiser segment.
The first ever R18 in First Edition trim stands entirely in the tradition of historical BMW motorcycles, both technically and in design, BMW Motorrad said in a press statement.
“The R 18 borrows from famous models such as the BMW R 5, shifting focus back onto the motorcycle essentials: purist, no-frills technology and the boxer engine as the epicenter of riding pleasure.”
The R 18 is powered by a 1802cc two-cylinder boxer engine rated at 91 horsepower and 150 Newton-meters of torque.
It has three riding modes – Rain, Roll and Rock – so as to adapt to different rider preferences.
This BMW Motorrad Philippines’ newest member is priced at Php 1,955,000. It also comes with the BMW 5-Year Warranty, which covers up to 5 years or 500,000 kilometers, whichever comes first.
