RAW POWER – PURE SOUL
Shot of a moving R 18 B backed by a hilly landscape.
The R 18 B brings together full Boxer power with BMW Motorrad touring history and the emotional character of the R 18 family. The large front end featuring a fork-mounted fairing and low windscreen demonstrate a strong character. The 1802 cc of the black Big Boxer leaves no room for speculation. Still, it’s not all about displacement. The R 18 B goes significantly further.
Looks: unmistakable bagger motorcycle.
The dropping fly line runs from the tall, striking front fairing to the teardrop-shaped 6.3 gallon tank and the stretched seat to the rear end featuring integrated side cases and tail lights. Typical for BMW Motorrad: consistent and straight-forward design. Typical for a bagger motorcycle: characteristic streamlining.
HIGHLIGHTS AT A GLANCE
Discover the highlights in detail. The R 18 B offers everything you would expect from a contemporary bagger, from traditional elements to modern motorcycling technology. And much more!
1802 cc – but no space for hot air.
There has never been this much displacement on a BMW. You can see it, hear it and feel it. Rely on over 111 lb-ft at any time between 2,000 to 4,000 rpm for powerful indulgence and a consistently high torque developed in a typical boxer way. At 4,750 rpm the mighty powertrain generates 91 hp. The exposed, nickel-plated Cardan shaft is based on a traditional design, representing one of many more highlights of these 1802 ccs.
Rock ‘n’ Roll ‘n’ Rain.
The R 18 B’s three Ride Modes offer you riding pleasure as standard, supplemented by Automatic Stability Control (ASC) and dynamic engine brake control (MSR). Available Reverse Assist and Hill Start Control make hill starts easier and add even more convenience. Plus the traditional headlight shape features cutting-edge LED lighting technology. The adaptive headlight is optionally available to provide you with almost complete illumination of the road when cornering while maintaining the high-beam headlight at a constant headlight range.
