The R 18 Transcontinental offers you exclusive and luxurious traveling. 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 define your R 18 Transcontinental according to what you will discover on every trip: yourself. Simply put: classic #SoulFuel.
Convenient, luxurious and consistent: the Power Reserve display of the R 18 Transcontinental shows how much power you still have available.
The optional, powerful 180 watt amp powers a total of six speakers: for maximum sound quality and absolute audio pleasure.
Four traditional, analog round instruments combine with one modern 10.25” TFT display: from the fuel level indicator to the navigation system and your playlist, it provides you with all the relevant information at a glance.
With the new available ACC, your bike maintains your desired speed, via a radar sensor, and distance from the vehicle in front of you.
The particularly comfortable passenger seat features heating as standard and offers outstanding stability. The backrest has been seamlessly integrated into the adjacent topcase.
Plenty of space for plenty of information. From map navigation to vehicle data and your playlist: easily keep an eye on everything thanks to the 10.25” TFT display.
The front fairing that has been installed on the forks provides you with ideal protection from the elements in conjunction with the tall windscreen. The two LED additional headlights remain true to the original style and perfectly integrate into the R 18 Transcontinental’s lines to lend it an unmistakable look.
Wind deflectors and the tall windscreen make sure that wind will not bother you too much.
You already realize why the Big Boxer is called exactly that when you start it up. You can feel the vast displacement on every mile along the way. With its typical boxer power development you can rely on at minimum 111 lb-ft between 2,000 and 4,000 rpm. The impressive torque and responsiveness provide fully fledged pleasure in the long term – relaxed, but never boring. And the exposed, nickel-plated cardan shaft demonstrates just how much history we have packed into these 1802 cc. What now? Time to write your own history.
You can comfortably eat up the miles on the R 18 Transcontinental: Dynamic Cruise Control (DCC) and optional Active Cruise Control independently control the speed and the distance to the vehicle ahead. Furthermore three Ride Modes, Automatic Stability Control (ASC) and dynamic engine brake control (MSR) aid control. The optional Reverse Assist, Hill Start Control and the central locking system for cases and topcase provide even more convenience.
