R 18 Classic Highlights

Inspired by a Legend.

The R 18 Classic masterfully transposes the iconic style of bygone times to the present day, retaining a purist design that is clearly influenced by the classics. It’s no coincidence that elements such as the double-loop frame, pear-drop tank, and exposed driveshaft hark back to the legendary BMW R 5 of 1936. Together with the double-sided swingarm and cantilever suspension strut, the R 18 Classic simultaneously pays tribute to the classic, and transports it into the modern age

Highlight 1

Our Most Powerful Boxer Engine of All Time.

The R 18 Classic’s “Big Boxer” Engine – BMW’s most powerful boxer engine ever – draws inspiration from the traditional boxer engines that were synonymous with BMW motorcycles from the early 20th century. The twin-cylinder 1802 cc engine boasts an impressive output of 91 hp at 4750 rpm and delivers 150 Nm of torque at all times – for unprecedented pulling power.

Highlight 2

Make the bike your own.

The flexible overall concept of the R 18 Classic and its extensive range of accessories give you all the freedom you need when designing your own bike. This gives you the opportunity to create a bike according to your own tastes.
