In terms of styling, the motorcycle looks gigantic and a mean machine. The BMW R18 Magnifica is claimed to have mahogany wood, brass, and aluminium elements across the body along with a custom-built frame and billet aluminium wheels. The designer claimed to have taken inspiration from old-school motorcycles from the 1920s, the 30s and 40s for executing the final design of the R18 Magnifica. The motorcycle major claims that this one-off project comes with an incredible charm that many modern motorcycles cannot replicate.
