In pics: BMW Motorrad digitally launches R 18 cruiser
The BMW R 18 cruiser was displayed as a concept at the EICMA 2019.
BMW Motorrad R 18 cruiser has been digitally launched via a live telecast at the brand's official Facebook page. The cruiser has been under development for quite sometime now.
The R 18 cruiser has bare basic looks with nothing more than an engine, frame, seat, suspension and wheels. It features minimum body panels, adding to its raw appeal.
The R 18 has a cradle-type chassis which houses a 1,800 cc, two-cylinder boxer engine. The engine features a 107 mm bore and 100 mm stroke. It is claimed to be the biggest motorcycle engine developed by BMW Motorrad.
A visual highlight of the R 18 includes the exposed chrome-plated universal shaft which connects its rear wheel and the drive.
