 BMW Motorrad Malaysia will introduce the latest powerhouse in its iconic Heritage line-up, the BMW R 18 Roctane, at the BMW Premium Selection (BPS) showcase, happening from 1st to 3rd March at the Bukit Jalil National Stadium. As the fifth edition to the R 18 family, the BMW R 18 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. 

Sashi Ambihaipahan, Head of Corporate Communications and Sustainability at BMW Group Malaysia said, “Rolling in as a stylish symbol of SoulFuel in its own right, we are thrilled to preview the New BMW R 18 Roctane for our hot-rod touring enthusiasts in Malaysia. The Roctane edition, paired with our formidable ‘Big Boxer’ engine, demonstrates our continued mission to always Make Life A Ride; offering superior riding experiences, whether on a relaxing solo cruise or a thrilling group ride. This, coupled with exclusive programmes for the BMW Premium Selection (BPS) showcase this weekend, further delivers on our promise to provide customers with the Premium Ownership Experience across our entire portfolio of premium vehicles.”

The New BMW R 18 Roctane draws inspiration from iconic BMW models like the BMW R 5, prioritising the fundamental elements of motorcycling: pure, no-frills technology centred around the boxer engine, which has long been the heart of BMW Motorrad’s riding joy. This combination sets out to create a truly unique and emotionally resonant riding experience, accentuated by meticulously crafted design elements, including a sleek rear section designed for optimal aerodynamics.

The chassis of the New BMW R 18 Roctane is built upon a double-loop tubular steel frame, a hallmark of BMW Motorrad’s design tradition, where every weld and connection speaks to the dedication to quality. Akin to the legendary BMW R 5, the rear swinging arm envelops the rear axle drive in a timeless fashion, further connecting the bagger to its illustrious heritage. The New BMW R 18 Roctane 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, showcasing every element being crafted to ensure comfort and control on the asphalt. The New BMW R 18 Roctane arrives in Mineral Grey Metallic as well as Manhattan Metallic Matt – two distinct colourways that celebrate its rebellious character.  

At the heart of the New BMW R 18 Roctane sits the traditional air-cooled two-cylinder four-stroke boxer engine, the largest boxer engine of the proud Heritage line-up, also called the ‘big boxer’. With a commanding engine capacity of 1,802 cc, it also stands as the most powerful 2-cylinder boxer engine ever produced in BMW Motorrad’s proud Heritage line-up, delivering an output of 67 kW (91HP) at 4,750 rpm and a peak torque of 150 Nm.

Riding assistance features for the New BMW R 18 Roctane come in the form of Automatic Stability Control (ASC), along with three standard riding modes – Rock, Roll and Rain, for a fully personalised riding experience. Optional features for the bagger include the new Adaptive Headlight, that activates separate LED elements in the main headlight, allowing for better road illumination, especially when cornering, as well as Hill Start Control to facilitate effortless manoeuvring and starting, Headlight Pro, Reverse Gear Aid, Daytime Riding Light, Cruise Control,  and Fuel Filler Cap Lockable.

The estimated pricing for the New BMW R 18 Roctane is:

The New BMW R 18 Roctane RM 160,000 [Estimated]
