Calling this motorcycle completely new is unlikely to work, since it borrowed a significant part of the base model BMW R18, which is just appearing in dealerships.
The main differences lie in the components of the type of windscreen, travel cases, led optics and the passenger seat. The Germans also installed a new exhaust system and a new 16-inch front wheel. As standard, the BMW R18 Classic is equipped with cruise control.
In General, the BMW R18 Classic looks like a more luxury touring version of the BMW R18. the Bavarians simply took up the active expansion of the R18 model range.
When to expect a BMW R18 Classic, it is difficult to say. Given the delays in deliveries of the BMW R18, we can assume some problems with this.
