BMW R 18

Make Life a Ride with the new BMW R 18 ‘Big Boxer’.

The new BMW R 18 is motorcycling in its most authentic form; a stripped back bike, powerful torquey engine and an unmistakeable look.

The BMW R 18 is cruiser bike that is both sporty and modern. Low and long, raked out and understated, the R 18 is a thing of beauty from every angle. Its polished aluminium cylinder covers, subtle engine colouring, teardrop tank and fork, and exquisite pin-striping make the new BMW R 18 standout out from the crowd.

BMW R 18

The design of the new BMW R 18 is completely dominated by a new two-cylinder boxer engine, named the ‘Big Boxer’.

The air/oil cooled ‘Big Boxer’ is the highest-capacity twin-cylinder boxer engine ever used in motorcycle series production. The 1,802 cc engine, produces 91 hp at 4,750 rpm and the maximum torque figure of 158 Nm is available at 3,000 rpm. What is most impressive is that more than 150 Nm is available from 2,000 to 4,000 rpm ensuring enormous pulling power through its exposed shaft-drive.

The iconic BMW boxer engine and shaft-drive powertrain layout was first seen in the 1923 BMW R 32 and have both been an integral part of BMW motorcycle design ever since.

Leading the way in the Cruiser market

The two BMW R 18 model variations include the ‘bobber’ style which is a traditional naked cruiser, and the other ‘bagger’ style which features fixed luggage and large front fairing. Other specification highlights on the new BMW R 18 include an optional reverse gear that uses the starter motor assist when peddling the bike backwards from standstill. Like the rest of the BMW Heritage range, the R 18 engine uses a shaft final drive; in this iteration it is fully exposed on both models.
