2023 BMW R18 B Features

Active Cruise Control

With the available ACC, your bike maintains your desired speed, via a radar sensor, and distance from the vehicle in front of you.


The integrated side cases provide a capacity of over 7 gallons each. Their stylish shape has been integrated into the R 18 B’s streamlined outline: for an unmistakable bagger look. The perfectly coordinated liners made of a sophisticated leather and canvas material mix are available as part of the accessories range.


Four traditional, analog round instruments are included together with a modern 10.25” TFT display: from fuel level indicator to map navigation, you have all the information available at a glance.

Power Reserve

See what you can feel: the traditional, round instrument illustrates the power reserves you haven’t used yet.

TFT display

The 10.25” TFT color display offers you a range of legible information and maximum functionality.

Marshall Gold Series

Available gray cover grilles and golden Marshall lettering: these are the elements that conceal the refined sound quality from a total of four speakers powered by a 180 watt amp.

Boxer engine

We build it with conviction and plenty of passion. Power, endurance, reliability – simply put: a very special boxer experience.
