All new 2022 BMW R 18 Magnifica from Radikal Chopper  First look specifications and facts. A special custom work on the R 18 was presented at the Top Marques exhibition in Monaco.

Handmade and made with materials such as bronze, aluminum and wood, the BMW R 18 Magnifica was inspired by Raffaello Polchi, owner of Officine Riunite Milanesi, who commissioned Andrea Radaelli of Radikal Chopper.

As Andrea says, “the motorcycle must be my creation, I do not want to modify existing elements, as many others have done so well”.

His source of inspiration is the pre-war motorcycles and especially the BMW R 37, ie objects that “have a unique charm that today’s motorcycles can not reproduce” .

This logic includes the use of wood, which entered the Magnifica to give it a “living” accessory, an aura reminiscent of the wooden handlebars of pre-war bike, expressed here with a large piece of mahogany in the tail.

The work done on this custom BMW R 18 did not go through modern design software, but mainly through the design in Radaelli’s hand and his ability and imagination in construction. Almost nothing on the Magnifica is on the shelves of the trade, as most of them were made by hand by Radikal Chopper, even the billet front suspension, brake discs and brake calipers – except for the rims.

Mechanically we will not find changes in the R 18, its electronics are completely factory, as well as its thermal part (engine), while there is absolutely no change in geometry: dimensions, wheels and suspensions are exactly the same as in the mass production model.

What has changed dramatically in the Radikal Chopper workshop, however, is the weight, as the Magnifica weighs around 250 kg, which is almost 100 less than the 345 of the stock model!
