The new R 18 invokes the history and the iconic hallmarks of the BMW brand. The result: a true BMW cruiser that is full of character, surrounding the largest displacement boxer engine we have ever built and timeless design features, such as the white double striping on the R 18 First Edition.
We have counted on the boxer since 1923 with conviction. The 1,802 cc two-cylinder boxer engine of the R 18 is the highest displacement boxer that BMW has ever built. It delivers a maximum torque of 116 lbs-ft at 3,000 rpm. At 4,750 rpm, the Big Boxer delivers 91 hp combining its core tradition with modern technology for pure emotion on the road.
