BMW R18 conversion by HORNIG + Remus Soundcheck
With the R18, BMW Motorrad is entering new terrain concerning the cruiser area of the US market and yet the traditional brand has refocused on the design characteristics of its own history. The "Big Boxer", which has a volume of 1802 cubic centimeters, was especially developed for this new motorcycle. However, it continues the legacy of the air-cooled boxer engines. The heart of the BMW R18 impresses with its peak output of 67 kW (91 hp) at 4750 rotations and particularly with 150 Nm of torque being continuously available over the whole speed range of 2.000 to 4.000 rpm.

When you are on the road with the R18, it is important to protect you and your motorcycle from damage in the best possible way. Due to the black colour scheme of the crash bars, the visual appearance is also taken into account. A small mirror brings you a great deal of safety on tour, because our blind angle mirror eliminates this accident risk. The alarm brake disc lock ensures that you can let the cruiser out of your sight without having a guilty conscience. Thanks to our tank bags and rear- or tail bags, you no longer need to worry about lack of storage space. A relaxed seating position is, of course, of vital importance, especially on longer motorcycle trips. That is why you are welcome to make use of our service to customise your BMW R18 seat. You can also restock your wear- and spare parts, either engine oils or brake fluid. In order to be able to properly fit these wear- and spare parts to the BMW R18, you should have the right tools to hand, for example a small or large socket wrench set. To ensure that you can see through your touring windshield even in the rain, we recommend the National Cycle RainZip rain repellent. Paint care is important so that you can enjoy the coating for a long time. Therefore, use our cleaners and polishes. With Garmin and TomTom navigation devices, you can find your way around optimally even on unknown routes. Whether to entertain with music or to talk to your fellow travellers; no matter what you choose: The Interphone intercom can do both. With our stickers or rim stripes, you can emphasise the uniqueness of your BMW R18. But you and your motorcycle should not only attract attention and be seen visually. Of course, this is also a safety factor on the road, where the additional LED- and halogen lights will serve you faithfully.
