BMW Motorrad Malaysia Introduces the All-New BMW S 1000 XR and Teases the Arrival of the All-New BMW R 18

Make Life a Ride with a new variant of the iconic adventure sports motorcycle and the anticipation of a new classic masterpiece arriving this October.

BMW Motorrad Malaysia today introduced the All-New BMW S 1000 XR – a gamechanger in the Adventure Sports motorcycle segment. The premium motorcycle maker also teased the arrival of its iconic big-boxer cruiser, the All- New BMW R 18 on the BMW Motorrad Malaysia online booking platform. Harald Hoelzl, Managing Director of BMW Group Malaysia said, “Every step BMW Motorrad takes is another step towards uncharted innovation.

BMW take pride in their sophisticated engineering precision to present the ultimate riding experience on both the road and the racetrack. The All-New BMW S 1000 XR raises the bar with its incredible agility and versatility, while opening up a whole new dimension in the Adventure Sport segment. The All-New BMW R 18, on the other hand, is in a league of its own. The new large capacity boxer cruiser combines many iconic hallmarks in the history of BMW Motorrad and modernises the ride with its uniquely bold character.” Owen Riley, Head of BMW Motorrad Malaysia said, “With a newly-developed engine and suspension, the All-New BMW S 1000 XR succeeds in long distance performance thanks to a 10kg reduction in weight.

The variant also features a sporty aggressiveness that is familiar with RR line of motorcycles from BMW. For the All-New BMW R 18, nothing would roar louder than its 1,802 cc two-cylinder boxer engine – which is the highest displacement boxer than BMW has ever built – sitting at the core of this cruiser. A much-anticipated engineering marvel in the premium motorcycle industry.”
