Dr. Jekill & Mr. Hyde has created a street legal, electronically adjustable exhaust that lets you hear and feel the iconic punch of the 1800cc boxer engine and discover the real soul and sound of the BMW R18. As much as we already love the Boxer-engine, it is our firm belief that our exhaust system can strongly highlight the unique and distinguished BMW sound. While developing The Beat, our sound engineers always had the distinct Boxer engine sound as a guidence to shape the sound of this new exhaust. Creating a deep rumble with only a deep bass with no treble, yet close to the classic and widely known punch of the Boxer engine.
Like every other BMW exhaust system The Beat is equipped with three sound modes. By a simple push of a button on the handlebars a valve inside the muffler closes, opens or opens halfway, which gives the rider the possibility to easily adjust the sound to the moment.
Everything you want to know about The Beat can be found on our dedicated landing page: information, soundclips, videos and more. And while you are at it; start configuring and pre-order your brand new exhaust for the BMW R18. Make every beat count!
