Although the Concept R18 cruiser has been unveiled at the Concorso D’Eleganza Villa D’Este, and BMW has presented the Concept R18 /2 model at the Custombike-Show last year, the patents show the design of what could be the R18 cruiser in production form. The bike could be launched as a 2021 model.

The Concept R18 air-cooled 1,802 cc engine is making 91 hp at 4,750 rpm and 158 Nm of torque at 3,000 rpm. It will be interesting to see if the power figures of the production R18 will remain the same.
