With their Big Boxer engines, the R 18 B and the R 18 Transcontinental chime perfectly with the BMW Motorrad tradition and are instantly recognisable as members of the R 18 family. Both motorcycles feature a large front end, yet each bike boasts its own unique appearance. Both motorcycles are consistently geared towards customization, so you can express yourself to best effect.
Marshall sound system
As standard, the R 18 B and the R 18 Transcontinental feature a sound system developed in collaboration with British manufacturer Marshall, for a particularly intense sound experience. Enhance your listening experience even further with this optional ex-works equipment. The Marshall Gold Series Stage 1 and Marshall Gold Series Stage 2 offer up to four loudspeakers and two subwoofers with a total output of 280 watts for good vibrations that don't just come from the Big Boxer.
