Thrilling #racing with an international starting field on identical #BMW R nineT Racers.

Munich. The #BMW Motorrad #BoxerCup promoted by Wilbers goes into its second season this year. The #BoxerCup 2020 will primarily be held in conjunction with the International German Motorcycle Championship IDM and the #racing calendar currently comprises seven #racing weekends, each with two races. Like last year, the riders will battle it out on technically identical #BMW R nineT Racers, ensuring ideally balanced opportunities for a thrilling #racing spectacle.

BMW Motorrad and Wilbers have extended their cooperation in connection with the #BoxerCup. Like last year, the #BMW R nineT Racer bikes have been optimised for the race, with each bike featuring identical modifications including an optimised fork and a strut by Wilbers, carbon fibre cylinder head covers, engine spoiler and rear end by Ilmberger, titanium manifolds with mufflers by BOS, quick-release brake couplings by Stäubli, windshield and frame sliders by Wunderlich, #BMW Motorrad ABS with #racing software, handlebars and footrest systems and the option of a reverse shift pattern by Gilles Tooling, as well as Dunlop slicks and rain tyres. A new #BoxerCup partner is silencer manufacturer BOS, who is fitting every #racing Boxer with powerful-sounding silencers. The helmets are supplied by HJC. Thanks to the fact that the conditions are equal for all participants, nothing but riding skills, courage and a little luck decide who wins and who loses.

Last year the #BoxerCup already produced high-thrills #racing right through to the finish. The highlight of the season as a whole was definitely the final at Hockenheim. Points leader Chris “Fifty“ Hoefer arrived at the Motodrom in Baden with a comfortable margin of 31 points to clinch the title of “BoxerCup Champion 2019”.

To the delight of fans, several well-known guest starters appeared for the final race of the season, including former Grand Prix rider Jürgen Fuchs, ex-BoxerCup winner and superbike veteran Stephane Mertens and #BMW Motorrad spokesperson and 1992 German Supersports 600 champion Gerhard "Gegesch" Lindner, as well as Norbert Rebholz, #BMW Motorrad development engineer responsible for the #BMW R nineT series and – like Lindner – a former supersports rider.

This season the #BoxerCup has an international line-up from the word go, with riders from Germany, Switzerland, Belgium and the USA. As in the previous year, some well-known #racing riders will be joining in to provide additional highlights. The #BMW Motorrad #BoxerCup starts on 22 – 24 May at the Red Bull Ring in Austria.

Riders and teams can apply for a much-coveted starting place in 2020 right away. For the first time, Wilbers is offering not just a package including a ready-to-race R nineT Racer, equipment and fees, but also a Cup parts kit for
BMW Motorrad dealers and #BMW R nineT Racer owners. For further details of the #racing series and entries, please see www.BMW-boxer-cup.de .
