The new BMW R 18.

Soul is all that matters.

The new R 18 invokes our history and the iconic hallmarks of our brand which we have worked very hard on. The result: a cruiser that is full of character boasting a boxer engine with the most displacement that we have ever built as well as timeless design features, such as the white double striping on the R 18 First Edition.

R 18

The basic version of the R 18 in Black storm metallic insists on purity.

A cruiser at first glance.

The flyline is elongated and low. The double-cradle steel frame covers the powerful, sculpted engine that underlines the impressive presence of the bike. Riders also have a number of custom equipment options: the R 18 is scaled back to its core to allow for full customisation.

Experience the sound of the R 18

We have counted on the boxer since 1923  – by conviction. The 1802 ccm two-cylinder boxer engine of the R 18 is the boxer with the most displacement that we have ever built. It delivers its maximum torque of 158 Nm at 3000 min-1. From 2000 bis 4000 min-1, it always delivers over 150 Nm, meaning a consistently high torque with the typical running characteristics of a boxer. At 4750 min-1, the Big Boxer delivers 67 kW (91 hp). Thereby combining its core tradition with modern technology. For pure emotion on the road.
