2021 BMW R 18 Classic

The touring-friendly R18 Classic is the brand’s latest addition to its Heritage offerings. It is a nostalgic touring bike that echoes the origin of the great touring cruiser models from the House of Munich. The majority of the elements remain unchanged from the standard R18 like LED lighting systems, a tear-drop-shaped fuel tank, and the hardtail-esque rear section. The added ones are LED fog lights, a large windshield, a removable passenger seat, saddlebags, and a 16-inch front wheel, altogether contributing to the distinguishing appearance of the touring version.

Powering the R18 Classic is a 1,802-cc air-cooled boxer twin engine churning out a maximum power of 91 PS at 4750 rpm and a peak torque of 158 Nm from 2,000 to 4,000 rpm. The gearbox uses a six-speed transmission and a final driveshaft to send power to the rear wheel. The top speed of the bike is rated at 180 kmph. 

Other features include reverse gear, selectable riding modes (Rock, Roll, and Rain), steering stabiliser, ABS, electronic cruise control, automatic stability control, and so on. Black Storm Metallic colour is the only colour choice on offer.

The two superbikes are now available at all authorised BMW Motorrad showrooms across the country.
