 BMW Motorrad’s R18 Classic arrives at Rs 24 lakh

The much sought after BMW Motorrad’s R18 Classic is now available in India.

Before R18 Classic, we saw R18. Both these motorcycles get the 1802cc Boxer twin air/oil-cooled engine which makes 89.9bhp and 158Nm.

The new BMW R 18 Classic feature a laid-back positioning of the footrests – so-called “mid-mounted footpegs” in keeping with the BMW Motorrad philosophy.
