It is basically a touring friendly version of the R 18 which comes kitted with a windshield, saddlebags and passenger seat plus an additional LED headlight. The bike rolls on a 16-inch front wheel and also comes with a standard electronic cruise control. To celebrate the launch of the new R 18 Classic, the company is also offering the bike in a 'First Edition' spec colour, with accessories including Mustang seats as well as a Vance & Hines exhaust system.

Mechanically, things remain unchanged. The 'Classic' variant retains the same 1800 cc Big Boxer engine which stands as the most powerful Boxer engine that BMW has ever produced. It has been rated to pump out 91hp at 4,750 rpm, and 150 Nm of torque is recorded between 2,000 rpm and 4,000 rpm.
