The First Ever R 18


The new R 18 invokes the history and the iconic hallmarks of the BMW brand. The result: a true BMW cruiser that is full of character,  surrounding the largest displacement  boxer engine we have ever built and timeless design features, such as the white double striping on the R 18 First Edition.

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 customization.

We have counted on the boxer since 1923 with conviction. The 1,802 cc two-cylinder boxer engine of the R 18 is the highest displacement boxer that BMW has ever built. It delivers a maximum torque of 116 lbs-ft at 3,000 rpm. At 4,750 rpm, the Big Boxer delivers 91 hp combining its core tradition with modern technology for pure emotion on the road.
