The BMW R 18 has grown two new models in the range, one of which is the new R 18 Transcontinental. A bike made for touring, the R 18 Transcontinental offers supreme comfort, power, and style.
A new front fairing that incorporates a tall windscreen and additional LED riding lights make it stand out from other models in the R 18 range. But like all other R 18 models, the heart of the Transcontinental is the 1802cc ‘Big Boxer’ engine.
The rear suspension is also new on the R 18 Transcontinental. It automatically adjusts to balance any weight placed at the rear from either pillion, luggage or both.

With a large, luxurious pillion seat, the R 18 Transcontinental has been designed with both rider and passenger comfort in mind.
To make touring even more refined, there’s Dynamic cruise control, heated grips, riding modes and heated seat all fitted as standard. Optional convenience features include hill start control, reverse gear and adaptive headlight.
Incorporated into the pillion seat is a 47-litre top box, which when combined with the two 27 litre side cases, makes for over 100 litres of storage space. Perfect for when doing multi-day long distance cruising. With BMW’s keyless ride system, all the storage can be secure locked and unlocked with a touch of a button.
Long rides should be comfortable and are made even easier with cruise control. Luckily the R 18 Transcontinental features dynamic cruise control as standard, and even offers reactive adaptive cruise control as an option.
