BMW R 18 2020

The BMW R 18 is a beautifully made motorbike. Everything about it is genuine. The big boxer will delight friends of the BMW brand, but also friends of extroverted mechanical motorbike technology. In driving mode, the engine is pleasant to dose and thus fits well with the accessible handling. The equipment options are almost limitless. In terms of driving dynamics, chassis and electronics package, BMW is not breaking any new ground. It is a well-made classic beautiful cruiser. The seating position heats up the tempers. During the test ride, however, the journalists coped well with it. It tends to be a little more difficult to sit on the bike with long legs.
