Our R 18 models
Much more than just motorcycles
We make our clothing with the same passion we dedicate to making our bikes. And with the same focus on quality: for minimalist and classic looks that don’t show off their high levels of functionality and protection, additionally giving you complete freedom of movement in your everyday life.
Taking “Nordic” style to the next level
When the new BMW R 18 first was shown for the public last year, it hit the two-wheeled world with a loud bang. This was simply something else. A big boxer that made you think twice about what it is you really enjoy and yearn for when it comes to motorcycles. The R 18 is heritage, aspiration and a huge leap towards a segment where BMW Motorrad belongs. The new 1800 cc boxer engine is the perfect platform suited for a series of modern, laid-back cruiser bikes.
