The new 2022 BMW R 18 B Touring Bike reflects the classic “bags” style, with a low-firing windscreen and a small, narrow two-seater, as well as a long, dynamically attractive downhill slope. The engine is coated with metal matte black, such as fork and fork sleeves, rearview mirrors, handlebar weights, and handlebar fittings. Instrument clusters and rings as well as cast alloy wheels, are all blacks.
2022 BMW R 18 B Touring Bike – Features and Specs
Pure Spirit – Raw Power
The R 18 B BMW Motorrad combines full boxer power with touring history and the unique role of the R 18 family. The Black Big Boxer’s 1802cc engine leaves little room for speculation. However, migration is not the only issue. R 18 B is mighty. It is designed for personalization. Turn it into one of your kind motorcycle and set #SoulFuel on fire.
The Bagger motorcycle looks recognizable.
The striking flight line extends from a long, eye-catching front firing to a teardrop-sized 6.3-gallon tank and extended seat to the rear end, which includes side casing and taillights. The design of the BMW Motorrad is permanent and straightforward. Non-motorcycle specific: unique smoothing.
Travel expands the intellect – and shapes things in our personality.
The 2022 BMW R 18 B Touring Bike seems to be able to eat trans-continental miles. The sleek, smooth design starts with an impressive front end with a sizeable front fender and dual auxiliary headlights.
Calmness creates strength – and every mile along the way.
When you start Big Boxer, you immediately understand why it is named. Every mile along the way, you can feel the massive displacement. You can expect at least 111 lb-ft of torque between 2,000 and 4,000 rpm with its typical boxer power program.
Original BMW Motorrad accessories and optional accessories
The new 2022 BMW R 18 B Touring Bike will have many choices, including ride and style collection accessories. Original BMW accessories can be installed by a BMW Motorrad dealer or client or redesigned later.
A wide range of components allows customization and individuality
The original BMW Motorrad Accessories collection includes alternatives to tailor the R18 B and R18 Transcontinental to customer preferences. Valve covers (cylinder head covers) and belt covers (engine housing covers), for example, are designed to be located outside the oil chamber making them very easy to replace.
Custom option 719 with historical source
Some optional extras, weird special requests, and a variety of features were allocated to the entry code “719” at the BMW Motorrad facility in Berlin decades ago. BMW Motorrad now offers a unique optional addition to the new 2022 BMW R 18 B Touring Bike and R18 Transcontinental called “Option 719” and a selection of original BMW Motorrad accessories.
Option 719 design packages include AERO sheet aluminum cylinder head cover, front cover, and intake snorkel cover with a brush and clear anodized finish. Cylinder head coverings include intricately designed air vents for “streamliners” from the 1920s and 1930s.
