Autofabrica’s Type 18

The Type 18 is a project which is an official collaboration with BMW Motorrad, based using the famous R nine T Autofabrica has set out to create an avant-garde motorcycle which pushes the boundaries of design.

Heavily influenced by BMW’s history in aviation we decided to celebrate the famous boxer engine which is BMW’s. With a heavy mix of traditional aluminium coachwork and 3D printing behind the elegant hand made pieces meant they could push their engineering, fit and finish and design to another level.
