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. 

This classic position behind the cylinders is not only typical of BMW; it also enables a relaxed and active riding position for optimum vehicle control.
