Only 6 dealers in Australia had the chance to participate in the R 18 Roadshow, luckily for us the team from Rolfe Classic BMW Motorrad was one of them and they invited us to a sneak peak.
The all new R 18 a cruiser full of character, boasting the largest and most eye-catching boxer engine BMW has ever built.
The flyline is elongated and low. The double-cradle steel frame covers the powerful engine that underlines the impressive presence of the bike.
The 1802 ccm two-cylinder boxer engine of the R 18 is the boxer with the most displacement that BMW has ever built. It delivers its maximum torque of 158 Nm at 3000 min-1. From 2000 bis 4000 min-1, it always delivers over 150 Nm, meaning a consistently high torque with the typical running characteristics of a boxer. At 4750 min-1, the Big Boxer delivers 67 kW (91 hp).
