BMW Motorrad announces the Start of Season 2019 with an Open Weekend to test the new boxer engine with BMW ShiftCam technology, the latest exciting chapter in the history of the most iconic BMW Motorrad engine.

On February 16th and 17th the BMW Motorrad Dealers will offer the opportunity to all the fans 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. Even the quiet operation and smooth running, especially at low revs, have 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 was used for the first time in BMW Motorrad engines, a technique for timing and variable valve lift on the intake side.

The camshafts, for the suction 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 operation of the camshafts, now entrusted to a toothed chain, the optimization of the oil supply, dual-jet injectors and a new exhaust system.
