Harley-Davidson or  Indian  – that is about it with models from each being the only comparable for the R 18 B and R 18 Transcontinental. The Kawasaki Vaquero sits in its own bubble.

WHAT BMW SAYS: The R 18 B brings together full power with BMW Motorrad touring history and the emotional character of the R 18 family. The large front end featuring trim panels on the handlebars and the low windscreen already demonstrate a strong character. The 1802 cc of the black Big Boxer also leave no room for speculation. Still, it’s not all about displacement. The R 18 B goes significantly further. It’s made for customizing.

The R 18 Transcontinental offers you exclusive and luxurious travelling. As a member of the R 18 family it represents BMW Motorrad’s tradition and is deeply rooted in the here and now: its unmistakable front end with the tall windscreen and the mighty Big Boxer promise a comfortable, powerful ride for miles. The automatic load compensation feature accurately adapts the chassis to the load applicable to the motorcycle. And thanks to it being prepared for customizing you can exactly define your R 18 Transcontinental according to what you will discover on every trip: yourself.
