BMW Motorrad has been in the motorcycle manufacturing business for a century and has mastered the art of delivering top motorcycles that are must-haves for every motorcycle lover. Like every other BMW Motorcycle, the R 18 follows the tradition of the motorcycle giant in providing a premium quality ride experience. Here are ten reasons you will love the 2022 R 18.
The BMW R 18 lineup was already impressive, but the addition of the new Transcontinental model takes the choice and capability offering to a new level. The lineup now includes the standard BMW R 18, BMW R 18 Classic, BMW R 18 B (Bagger), and the new BMW R 18 Transcontinental.
The R 18 sports a classic retro look while still delivering modern technology.
The exhaust releases a fine roar at the start and continuous engagement of the engine, leaving the rider to enjoy the classic but refined motorcycle sound while cruising.
The main aim of a cruising motorcycle is the ride experience, and BMW, having identified this, BMW prioritized ride experience over performance and speed.
Risers sometimes spend more time on the wheel of cruise motorcycles than any other type hence the need for an interesting cockpit view. It’s normal to get bored of staring at the same thing for an extended period, but for the R 18, you never get bored of the choice of design implemented there.
Shifting the six-speed transmission couldn’t have been better. The gearbox delivers a solid, immediate shift on engagement with an accompanying sound that does not get in the way of the ride.
The design, parts, and engravement solidly appeal to the American public. This was not a mistake but a deliberate effort at cornering a significant share of the American cruise motorcycle market.
BMW Heritage dedicates some selected new motorcycles to icons it has built in the past. The R 18 is built on the R 5 heritage, being one of the first sets of BMW cruisers suitable for touring.
This is undoubtedly a great feature on the R 18, especially for motorcycle enthusiasts who prefer a personal touch. The R 18 is built to accommodate and adapt to different configurations or serve as the base for a custom motorcycle job.
BMW has been using the boxer twin engine for almost a century, and the new R 18 follows the same tradition with a larger engine. The R 18 uses the largest boxer twin engine yet, resulting in a massive 1,802cc, and delivers 91 hp and 116 lb.-ft of low-down torque.
