First Cruiser Bike From BMW Stable Is Out.

The BMW R 18 is the first cruiser motorcycle from the German brand in 16 years. The styling of the BMW cruiser bike is inspired from the BMW R 5 and it looks absolutely gorgeous. While it might look retro and beautiful on the outside, the R 18 gets modern equipment. 

Powering the bike is a massive 1,802cc boxer engine producing 90PS and an earth moving 158Nm of torque. The bike features a 6-speed transmission that has been linked to a shaft drive system, which is iconic to the German brand. Since the cruiser weighs 345kg (wet weight), BMW has also added a reverse gear for easier parking. 

The BMW R 18 will be brought to India as a CBU by end of 2020 should the COVID-19 situation be brought under control by then. Prices will start at around Rs 22 lakh (ex-showroom).
