On February 16th and 17th the BMW Motorrad dealerships will offer all enthusiasts the opportunity to test the formidable characteristics of the new generation of the boxer engine, which reaches a new level of power and torque, but not only. Smooth running and smooth running, especially at low revs, have also been significantly optimized. The new engine also achieves improved emission and consumption values and convinces with its particularly engaging sound. To achieve this, BMW ShiftCam technology, a technique for variable valve timing and valve lift on the intake side, was used for the first time in BMW Motorrad engines.
The camshafts, for the intake phase, have also been configured in such a way as to have an asynchronous opening of the two intake valves, producing an enhanced vortex of the incoming fresh mixture and therefore a more efficient combustion. Other technical modifications to the engine include, among other things, the drive of the camshafts, now entrusted to a toothed chain, the optimization of the oil supply, double-jet injectors as well as a new exhaust system.
