TOURING WITH A COOLNESS FACTOR
The R 18 Roctane is a synonym for pure nonchalance. Appearance: Bagger. Comfort: touring motorcycle. Personality: custom factory hot rod. It is driven by the powerful big boxer engine. Ride it and every country road turns into Route 66. Its style is unconventional: black and matt – that’s what joy can look like. At least for those who bring #SoulFuel to life. Bagger outline, dragster seat and midi ape-hanger demonstrate that this is not a bog-standard bike. Want even more rock 'n' roll? The bike ready for customising. All you need to do is own it!
More than a bike – your statement
The iconic front with round LED headlight and 21-inch cast aluminium wheel leads the way towards the horizon. You are casually gripping the midi ape-hanger and resting your feet on the standard footboards, while the dragster seat gives you perfect support on long tours. The elongated bagger outline flows straight to the stylish rear end featuring hard-shell cases. This bike is an eye-catcher. Unmistakable: the unique boxer sound from the striking, dark chrome rear silencer.
Your bike, your rules
Even more extrovert? Even cooler? Lend it your unique character. For this purpose, we offer a wide range of optional accessories, such as the Filler Panels or the Machined series by Roland Sands Design. A single seat is available for lonely riders. It goes without saying that you can take customising even further. There are no limits to your ideas.
Big boxer for long tours
A bike like a statement – an uncompromising ride. It goes without saying that this bike features the largest boxer engine we offer. Generating consistently high torque, it guarantees sheer riding pleasure on long journeys. You can rely on 150 Nm between 2,000 and 4,000 rpm. At 4,750 rpm, our big boxer delivers a whopping 67 kW (91 hp). The exposed, high-gloss, nickel-plated Cardan shaft makes power transmission impressively visible.
The first step is the easiest – the A2 variant of the R 18 Roctane.
The R 18 Roctane is also available with 35 kW (48 hp) to suit holders of a European A2 driving licence. Consequently, you can enjoy this bike when you are on the road with your European A2 driving licence. This means that you can make the most of the R 18 Roctane's intuitive handling from the very beginning. More information is available here.
EVERYTHING UNDER YOUR CONTROL
Numerous assistance systems make sure that you always have your bike under control. These include Automatic Stability Control (ASC), engine drag torque control (MSR) as well as optional Hill Start Control and a reverser.
