BMW R18 Classic Launched at 24 Lakh; Gets BMW’s Biggest BOXER Engine

BMW R18 Classic price is about Rs 1.50 Lakh more than the R18 First Edition. It is a more touring friendly model in this range…

BMW has built on its long cruiser platform with the launch of another variant on the R18 platform. After the R18 and R18 First Edition that were introduced here in September last year, the German has announced the R18 Classic – which becomes the third model in this lineup.

The R18 Classic is a more touring-spec model that carries forward the same 1802 cc Boxer engine which produces 91 hp at 4750 rpm and peak torque of 158 Nm that is available right from 3000 rpm. As much as 150 Nm is sent from 2000 to 4000 rpm.

In terms of differences, the Classic sports a larger windshield for enhanced wind protection along with a rear passenger seat (it is not present on the other two models). It also gets two additional LED headlamps and saddle bags. The big change is the move from 19 inch front tyre to a 16 incher that is wider.
