The R 18 Classic is a modern cruiser with a nostalgic sense of BMW design. It reminds one of the beginnings of the first cruisers suitable for touring. It also invokes timeless marks of our motorcycle history. The heart of the machine is obviously the boxer with the most displacement we have ever built. It stands for relaxing tours and pure enjoyment.
A cruiser inspired by icons
Streamlined silhouette, high-quality details: The R 18 Classic attracts all eyes to it.
THE HIGHLIGHTS AT A GLANCE
The drop-shaped tank is an icon from our history and emphasises – as does the elongated end silencer – the typical streamlined fly line of the R 18 Classic. Its double-cradle steel frame envelopes the enormous sculptured engine that turns every kilometre into an experience.
