THE BMW R 18 CLASSIC

ICONIC. NOSTALGIC. SOULFUEL.

The R 18 Classic is a modern cruiser with a nostalgic sense of BMW design. It reminds one of the first BMW cruisers suitable for touring. It also invokes timeless marks of our motorcycle history. The heart of the machine is obviously the boxer engine with the most displacement we have ever built. It is designed for relaxing tours and pure enjoyment. Consistently developed history – simply put: #SoulFuel.

From 2,000 to 4,000rpm , it delivers over 100 lb-ft , which translates to a consistently high torque delivery and the typical running characteristics of a boxer.
