The New 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.
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.
The finish on this R 18 B is Option 719 Galaxy Dust Metallic/Titan Silver 2 Metallic. It’s modern paint that lends the R 18 B a confident appearance.
There are three other color options for this model: Black Storm Metallic, “First Edition” – same Black but with white pinstripes, and finally Manhattan Metallic Matte.
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.
