THE BMW R 18 Classic

ICONIC. NOSTALGIC. SOULFUEL

The R 18 Classic is a modern cruiser with a nostalgic sense of BMW design. It reminds one of the beginnings, of the first cruisers suitable for touring. It also invokes timeless marks of our motorcycle history. The heart of the machine is obviously the boxer with the most displacement we have ever built. It stands for relaxing tours and pure enjoyment.

The first step is the easiest – the A2 variant of the R 18 Classic


The R 18 Classic is also available in an A2-compliant variant with 35 kW (48 PS). This variant can be throttled, meaning your machine supports you when you hold your A2 driver’s license. You can enjoy the intuitive handling of the R 18 Classic from the very beginning.

An early, high torque ensures the powerful cruiser torque: The 1802 ccm twin-cylinder boxer engine of the R 18 Classic is the boxer with the most displacement we have ever built. An engine you can see, hear, and feel: It delivers its maximum torque of 158 Nm at 3.000 min-1. From 2.000 to 4.000 min-1, it always delivers over 150 Nm, meaning a consistently high torque with the typical running characteristics of a boxer. At 4.750 min-1, the Big Boxer delivers 67 kW (91 hp). Start every tour with some zip. 

 

The drop-shaped tank is an icon from our history and emphasises – as does the elongated end silencer – the typical streamlined flyline of the R 18 Classic. Its double cradle steel frame envelopes the enormous sculptured engine that turns every kilometre into an experience.
