By A Knockout: 2003 BMW R1100S Boxer Cup Replika

Staid and steady BMW sought to shed their stodgy image by featuring their new R1100S in a one-make pro-race series. Part race of champions, part senior legends tour, the the BMW Boxer Cup produced some remarkable racing as a support series for major events (such as GP racing events). With skilled and experienced pilots aboard identical motorcycles, competition was close and fierce; full of the grinding of cylinder heads and madman feats of late braking. If you can find any of these older races on the GoogleTube they are well worth a watch. The outcome of these races was a slow change of image for BMW, and was celebrated by the R1100S Boxer Cup Replika.

Primarily consisting of paint and graphics, the base of the Boxer Cup bike is the standard R1100S. Subtle changes were made fitting of the track-day nature of the machine, including upgraded Ohlins suspension, braking improvements courtesy of braided lines, and Laser under-the-seat exhaust. Handling was improved by raising the rear of the bike to quicken steering and increase ground clearance. As the cylinder heads are typically the first hard parts to touch down during spirited riding, carbon fiber valve covers and special cylinder head sliders were fitted. The belly pan is race spec and designed to hold oil should the engine decide to shed itself of its life blood. This was all topped off by Randy Mamola’s signature on the fairing, making the bike look like it is ready to high side while sitting on the side stand. There is a reportedly different engine management chip installed after the first dealer service, but there is no power difference claimed for this model.

From the seller:
This is an incredible 2003 BMW R1100S BoxerCup Replica Motorcycle !!!!!
This 2003 BMW R1100S BoxerCup Replica Motorcycle is LIKE NEW !!!!

THE HISTORY
The 2003 R1100S BoxerCup Replica Motorcycle has only 2,343 miles on it… that’s nothing for a BMW !!! The VIN is WB10432A93ZB52967. It was built in October 2002. We are proud to offer this R1100S BoxerCup Replica Motorcycle for sale here on eBay.

THE CONDITION
The overall exterior condition of the motorcycle is like new. The paint is extremely deep and very glossy. The seating shows no wear. The panels are in good shape. The motorcycle starts right up and rides fine. The Metzler tires on this BMW have a ton of tread life left. This motorcycle has a few extra carbon fiber addons. The motorcycle just had a complete service and a new battery installed. The pitbull stand, original model, and presentation kit with COA are all included.

Today’s example is a 2003 model (these were 2003 – 2005 models), has very low miles and looks to be about as perfect as you could hope. It also appears to come with all of the extra accoutrements, such as the scale model and certificate of authenticity. That is a real plus for the collector. This looks to be a No Reserve auction, which could be a bonus depending on where the interest falls. With bidding slowly climbing over the $5k mark at time of writing and a fair few number of watchers, it could be fun to see where this one goes. Check out all of the details on this gorgeous bike here, and Good Luck!!

  • The suspension on Boxer Cups is not Ohlins and 2003/2004 models did not have Laser exhaust. That exhaust was available only on the 2005, last year the BCR was offered in the States. These are incredible bikes for sure. What they lack in the speed department, they more than make up in handling, looks and ergos. The bike here doesn’t have ABS which in my book is a plus. The system is very finicky and expensive to repair. Heated grips were part of the ABS package and is a personal preference although the non-heated grips are smaller diameter. The big bonus here is the Ilmberger CF hugger and pit bull spools. If you want one buy it now. The values on these, as well as regular r11s have bottomed out and stabilized.

    Missed my 2004 BCR so much that I snapped it back up when it hit the market.
