The new BMW R 18 mega-cruiser is BMW’s first foray into the cruiser market in a good few years, and has a newly developed 2-cylinder boxer engine with a displacement of 1,802 cc, peak power of 91hp, and over 150 Nm of torque.
The styling is based on the 1936 R5, and uses telescopic fork with fork sleeves, cantilever suspension strut, wire-spoked wheels, disc brakes, mid-mounted foot-pegs, three riding modes (including the cool-named ‘Rock’ and ‘Roll’), reverse assist, and Hillstart Control, and a huge number of tasteful accessories.
It’s going to cost from £18,995, and you can get more info from your local BMW dealer or www.bmw-motorrad.co.uk
