The new BMW R 18 - Iconic style of days gone by skilfully staged with modern technology and authentic materials
"The new R 18 is the modern interpretation of a cruiser that continues the BMW Motorrad tradition, confidently taking the iconic style of times gone by and skilfully transferring it to the present day. From the overall impression down to the smallest detail, a purist design lives on that was shaped by classics of the BMW R 5. The typical proportions with sloping lines as well as the clear and reduced design language, combined with functional and style-defining elements such as the double-loop frame, open-running propshaft or black paintwork with double lamination (optional equipment ex works) are not reminiscent of the legendary boxers of the early years by chance. And at the center of it all is the heart: the boxer engine. Unmistakably BMW, a homage to classic engine construction, a sculpture in metal. The classic bodywork of the R 18 is also made of metal - just as befits an authentic cruiser. Accordingly, the 16-liter fuel tank in its teardrop shape derived from the R 5, the front and rear fenders, the side panels below the seat, the fork sleeves and the housings of the headlight and round instrument are made of sheet steel. These peripheries, also known as the "paint set," shape the character and overall appearance of the new R 18, as does the monumental boxer engine. The deliberate design of the body as individual components reinforces the classic look while leaving room for conversion, customizing and modification."
