BMW R 18 The Wal by Shinya Kimura
<p>Fuel tanks and jerseys, helmets and tools, calligraphy and photography: the workshop – or rather the wonderful and orderly chaos – of Shinya Kimura, one of the most sought-after customisers in the world (and one of the most interesting ones!), is packed with mementos and astonishing items of all kinds. No more than two or three motorcycles leave his holy halls each year. During his modification projects, he always focuses on only one bike at a time to be fully invested in the project. The flow and harmony as well as the Wabi-Sabi of Japanese aesthetics play a crucial role in this. The patina and the genuine character of the – mostly – old motorcycles are just as important to him as the essence of the future rider. After all, it’s the rider who completes the project. So it’s all the more exciting that this time Shinya has a brand-new R 18 in his workshop and the rider concerned is no less than he himself.</p>

<p>Roland Sands is known for his daring designs with sports racing influences. He combines styles and knows no limits.

Sportier and more dynamic than ever.
Continuous growth thanks to a consistent and new model policy.
<p>Several new models and technical innovations are driving the growth at BMW Motorrad: the new K-Series now comes with a transversely mounted engine, and the newly developed F-Series fuels the mid-range segment. At the end of the decade, BMW Motorrad will introduce one of the most important new releases on the market - the S 1000 RR marks the first time that the brand has entered the world of superbikes.  </p>
Pioneer, trendsetter.
Bold products get BMW on a roll.
<p>The new four-valve boxer with electronic engine management and the first BMW single-cylinder motorcycle since 1966 come on the market in the 1990s. In addition, in the spring of 1991, BMW Motorrad became the world's first motorcycle manufacturer to offer a regulated three-way catalytic converter for motorcycles.  </p>
New technology, new segment.
BMW Motorrad continues to drive the innovation.
<p>The motorcycle manufacturer surprises with pioneering innovations and the new segment of travel enduro. After the revolutionary single-arm swing from 1980, the BMW Paralever system is introduced in 1987 in the R 100 GS.  </p>
Protection against wind and weather.
Aerodynamics leads to a new model class.
<p>A new era is being introduced: Cockpit and full fairings make driving on the motorcycle more comfortable. There are sporty motorbikes. In particular, the R 90 S is a popular design classic - not least because of its elaborate two-tone paintwork.  </p>
Up turn.
The two-wheeler boom leads from Munich to Berlin.
<p>In Berlin-Spandau, where aircraft engines were built up to 1945 and subsequently tool machine facilities were installed, the BMW motorcycles are given their new home and Berlin air in their tyres. In keeping with the new motorcycle boom, BMW manufactures a completely newly developed series with the /5 models.  </p>
Back on top.
BMW enters the international stage with top models and legendary victories.
<p>The 1950s are marked by sporting successes. BMW achieves remarkable top speeds with a series-manufactured machine. Furthermore the drivers of motorcycle teams win world championship titles.  </p>
On with pioneering spirit.
Production starts again with the R 24.
<p>After the turmoil of the war, BMW manages a new start with motorcycle production. First they build the R 24 a single-cylinder motorcycle limited to 250 cc. </p>
Of records and races - and even more records.
New designs lead to the sporting success of BMW motorcycles.
<p>In the 1930s, the engineers not only considered performance development, but also introduced, for example, the hydraulically damped telescopic fork and the elaborately designed OHV boxer engine - with unique consequences and successes. </p>
The foundations.
Max Friz designs the R32.
<p>At the Berlin Motor Show in September 1923, the starting signal was given for the construction of BMW motorcycles: The R 32 is the first BMW motorcycle, developed by Max Friz. The world-renowned boxer engine will be the manufacturers main characteristic. </p>
A new generation of twin-cylinder boxer engines.
Almost 100 years old - and it's only just reaching its prime.
<p>The new twin-cylinder boxer engine fascinates in its diversity from the very first moment. Its character is unmistakeable – in every engine speed range. It offers you increased performance and smooth running at low speeds. The BMW ShiftCam variable camshaft control ensures more powerful torque development over the entire engine speed range, providing greater control in every riding situation. Giving you power whenever you need it. More cubic capacity, more power – with higher efficiency. The strong performance with fewer gear changes gives you sovereignty. A masterpiece of engineering prowess. </p>

They boast state-of-the-art technology, but their design is inspired by the legendary R 100 GS and reminds us of the origins of the GS.</p>
Total passion
R 18 Spirit of Passion by Kingston Custom
<p>&quot;This won’t be just any old, stunning PR bike. It will be one with a soul, a spirit.” In just a few words Dirk Oehlerking makes clear what he – and his modified R 18 – stand for. Kingston Custom bikes are always something very special. They have names such as White Phantom or Good Ghost. And that’s not the only reason they put the fear of God into some and make the hair on enthusiasts’ necks stand on end. Even Dirk himself is gripped by total passion each time he does as much as think about his projects. However, there was something else involved in the R 18 “mega project”: a responsibility like never before.</p>
Seat Height Overview
<p>With individual adjustment solutions for almost every model, BMW Motorrad supports a custom fit between rider and motorcycle. This promotes standing stability and therefore confident, secure handling at traffic lights or when manoeuvering. BMW Motorrad offer a wide variety of different options to alter the position and height of our seats. This means you will always find a motorcycle that fits you. Below you will find an in-depth breakdown of all of our seat heights by model. </p>
Made for the city
The BMW Definition CE 04 is seamlessly integrated into your life.
<p>Quickly get from A to B. From work to your friend’s place, from a café to the city. Flexible, spontaneous, always networked: driver, smartphone and the Definition CE 04. Its drive is completely emission-free, the design completely rethought. With the BMW Motorrad Definition CE 04, we are consistently continuing what we started in our first electric maxi-scooter BMW C evolution and the concept bike Concept Link – maximising mobility and pleasure. Electric and emission-free, networked, permanently #PluggedToLife.</p>
Our new paint colours.
Update to the existing range of colours from BMW Motorrad.
<p>We regularly freshen up the standard colours on numerous models. Option 719 colours are especially surprising, with effective colour combinations that make your bike look even more unique.</p> <p>Here is an overview of the highlights.</p>
Like greased lightning.
Nick Huber is a speed demon.
<p>His babies are BMW classic bikes. He always finds the time to cruise. He stops off at a small restaurant, parks his bike in front of the window and eats a burger while longingly gazing at his companion. But Nick also likes it fast and has enjoyed the thrill of speed on many a motorcycle. His friends don't call him &quot;Blitzen&quot; for no reason. &quot;I'm a speed demon&quot; he admits. </p>
No old fogey.
Kelsey Coppetti loves the wind and freedom of riding.
<p>It started with the realisation. Kelsey was still living in San Francisco when she noticed that more and more women were riding motorcycles. Gone is the time when only men cruised through the city on two wheels. Why hadn't she of all people bought a bike yet? The thought of buying a motorcycle wouldn't leave her alone. </p>
Mum shares her story.
Jennifer McCann gets a kick out of riding.
<p>Jennifer had had enough. Always taking the back seat on a motorbike is not her style. She is a woman of action. She does things her way. A few years ago, she spontaneously learned to drive so that she could ride her own bike any time she felt like taking off. She wants time for herself – completely alone. To pull over wherever she fancies. To escape from phones, technology and work. </p>
Always on the road.
Hing Yeung rides 12 bikes.
<p>On your marks, get set for adventure, go: If Hing had his way, he'd always be on the road. Travel, travel and more travel. On one of his 12 motorcycles. It's no surprise: Hing is at home everywhere, always open to the world. Born in Hong Kong and raised in the Netherlands, he now lives and works in Long Beach, California. </p>
The man of many miles.
Brian Tinkler rides a lot.
<p>Posers. Brian doesn't have much time for those kinds of bikers. &quot;Too much affectation if you ask me&quot;, says the 60-year-old retiree from southern California. He doesn't show off his riding skills, and he doesn't need to boast about his abilities. Brian doesn't talk about riding at all. He just does it. &quot;The ride is all that matters&quot;, he says. Preferably a fast ride. </p>
Concept R 18 /2 makes EICMA debut.
Second BMW Motorrad cruiser concept unveiled.
<p>Just six months ago, BMW Motorrad took the custom scene by storm with the world premiere of the Concept R 18 at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este. Now, a second design study featuring the awe-inspiring 1800cc flat-twin engine has been successfully presented in Milan at the international EICMA motorcycle exhibition.</p>
Concept R 18 roars into life.
BMW Motorrad custom concept unveiled at Villa d’Este.
<p>It’s the world premiere that the custom scene has been eagerly awaiting – a BMW Motorrad custom concept featuring a new prototype flat-twin engine – the highest capacity boxer motorcycle ever produced. Simply christened ‘Concept R 18’, this pure, stripped-down, raked-out bike gives more than a hint of what’s coming our way in the cruiser segment.</p>

BMW R 18 The Wal by Shinya Kimura
<p>Fuel tanks and jerseys, helmets and tools, calligraphy and photography: the workshop – or rather the wonderful and orderly chaos – of Shinya Kimura, one of the most sought-after customisers in the world (and one of the most interesting ones!), is packed with mementos and astonishing items of all kinds. No more than two or three motorcycles leave his holy halls each year. During his modification projects, he always focuses on only one bike at a time to be fully invested in the project. The flow and harmony as well as the Wabi-Sabi of Japanese aesthetics play a crucial role in this. The patina and the genuine character of the – mostly – old motorcycles are just as important to him as the essence of the future rider. After all, it’s the rider who completes the project. So it’s all the more exciting that this time Shinya has a brand-new R 18 in his workshop and the rider concerned is no less than he himself.</p>
