The BMW R 18 B

Raw power – pure soul

The R 18 B brings together full Boxer power with BMW Motorrad touring history and the emotional character of the R 18 family. The large front end featuring a fork-mounted fairing and low windscreen demonstrate a strong character. The 1802 cc of the black Big Boxer leaves no room for speculation. Still, it’s not all about displacement. The R 18 B goes significantly further. It’s made for customizing. Turn it into your unique bike and bring out the #SoulFuel.

R 18 B design

Looks: unmistakable bagger motorcycle

The dropping fly line runs from the tall, striking front fairing to the teardrop-shaped 6.3 gallon tank and the stretched seat to the rear end featuring integrated side cases and tail lights. Typical for BMW Motorrad: consistent and straight-forward design. Typical for a bagger motorcycle: characteristic streamlining.

R 18 B First Edition

The Black Storm Metallic paint with white double lines meets a special surface finish. Supplemented by high-grade stitching on the seat and “First Edition” lettering on both cases, the combination makes for an exclusive paint and chrome look.

1802 cc – but no space for hot air

There has never been this much displacement on a BMW. You can see it, hear it and feel it. Rely on over 111 lb-ft at any time between 2,000 to 4,000 rpm for powerful indulgence and a consistently high torque developed in a typical boxer way. At 4,750 rpm the mighty powertrain generates 91 hp. The exposed, nickel-plated cardan shaft is based on a traditional design, representing one of many more highlights of these 1802 cc.
