A few months after the first photos of the upcoming R 18 found their way to the Internet, BMW Motorrad finally presented the finished product.
These are two models: R 18 Transcontinental and R 18 B.
R 18 Transcontinental and R 18 B raise the R 18 line to vii level. Both models are ideal for long journeys thanks to the large front armor and high-rise windshield.
According to the Bavarians, The Transcontinental offers the classic elements of an American motorcycle, while the B model is designed as a riding machine and is ideal for touring rides and cruises.
Both are powered by a 1,802 cc Big Boxer engine, which has 91 hp at 4,750 rpm and 158 Nm of maximum torque at 3,000 rpm.
The heart of Asia is a steel tubular frame, designed in accordance with the legacy of the cult R 5.

49-millimeter telescopic fork
Lightweight alloy wheels
BMW Motorrad ABS
