01. The New BMW R 18 Roctane

BMW Motorrad Malaysia has introduced the new BMW R18 Roctane at the BMW Premium Selection (BPS) showcase that took place at the Bukit Jalil National Stadium early this month.

As the fifth edition to the R18 family, the Roctane comes in as a fresh combination of time-honoured design elements with updated contemporary riding technology, culminating to provide a uniquely stylish touring experience.

Drawing inspiration from the legendary R5, the R18 Roctane is built upon a double-loop tubular steel frame, a hallmark of BMW Motorrad’s design tradition. Akin to the the R5, the rear swinging arm envelops the rear axle drive in a timeless fashion.

It also boasts well-balanced ergonomics with the presence of a ‘mid-mounted foot peg’ configuration and a two-level seat, as well as updated running boards, gearshift paddle, and high handlebars coated in sleek black.

The R18 Roctane is available Mineral Grey Metallic as well as Manhattan Metallic Matt – two distinct colourways that celebrate its rebellious character.

At the heart of the motorcycle sits the traditional air-cooled two-cylinder four-stroke boxer engine, the largest boxer engine of the Heritage line-up. With a capacity of 1,802 cc, it delivers 91 hp at 4,750 rpm and 150 Nm of torque, making it the most powerful two-cylinder boxer engine ever produced by BMW Motorrad.

Riding assistance features come in the form of Automatic Stability Control (ASC), along with three standard riding modes – Rock, Roll and Rain.

Optional features include the new Adaptive Headlight, Hill Start Control, Headlight Pro, Reverse Gear Aid, Daytime Riding Light, Cruise Control, and fuel filler cap lockable.

The estimated pricing for the R18 Roctane is RM160,000.
