The R 18 Classic extends the range towards touring

BMW’s next big boxer; the R18 Classic

Hot on the footsteps of the new R 18, the second model featuring BMW’s new ‘big boxer’ engine is the R 18 Classic. Harking back to the old days of touring cruiser models, the Classic features a large windscreen, passenger seat, saddle bags, additional LED headlights and 16-inch front wheel.


Regardless of the styling, the star of the show is that massive 1802cc two-cylinder boxer engine with peak output of 67kW (91hp) at 4750rpm. And it pulls: from 2000 to 4000rpm, over 150Nm of torque is available at all times.
