BMW R 18 M, R 18 Aurora Revealed in Partnership With Italian Customizers

On the BMW R 18 M, modifications have been carried out on the chassis of the bike, its suspension set-up, bodywork, and accessories.

With the unveiling of the new R 18 M and R 18 Aurora at the Verona Motor Bike Expo, BMW Motorrad has expanded its famous R 18 lineup. These motorcycles are the result of a collaboration between BMW Motorrad Italy, its dealer network, and a few Italian custom motorcycle builders.

The M emblem is used to justify the sporty appeal of the BMW R 18 M, which was devised by Italian magazine LowRide and built by American Dreams. The motorcycle has a sleek appearance with few exaggerations, and it also incorporates elements from the BMW R 18 classic designs.

While the motorcycle’s mechanicals and electronics have remained intact, the chassis, suspension setup, bodywork, and accessories have all undergone significant changes.

The body weight has been lightened while there the riding position has also been changed. “Significantly lightened, the bike should also be easy to handle due to its riding position, which is more compact and forward loaded, without exaggeration,” said Giuseppe Roncen, director of LowRide.

The bike’s small exhaust pipe, which bears the ER Exhaust Revolution logo, was meant to make it look more compact and allow for larger lean angles. The exposed nickel-plated shaft is also given more importance by the small exhaust pipes.

The BMW R 18 Aurora was designed by Garage 221 and is inspired by 1970s cruisers.

Some of the distinct elements of the bike include wraparound fenders which highlight the central area of the bike. The saddle of the bike was borrowed in its entirety from a BMW 1200 C of 2005, the Batwing supports were made using the supports for indicators of a BMW R 100 of 1982 and a part of the rear frame of a BMW K 75 of 1991.

For the body color, the code of a 1983 BMW RT 100 was taken as a reference, customizing the graphics in its shades and intensity.
