Experience the sound of the R 18

We have counted on the boxer since 1923  – by conviction. The 1802 ccm two-cylinder boxer engine of the R 18 is the boxer with the most displacement that we have ever built. It delivers its maximum torque of 158 Nm at 3000 min-1. From 2000 bis 4000 min-1, it always delivers over 150 Nm, meaning a consistently high torque with the typical running characteristics of a boxer. At 4750 min-1, the Big Boxer delivers 67 kW (91 hp). Thereby combining its core tradition with modern technology. For pure emotion on the road.
