There's something about a big, heavyweight cruiser, with dollops of gleaming chrome, an all-metal body, a rumbling twin-cylinder engine, and the open road. It's the stuff of motorcycle dreams. That's precisely what BMW tried to emulate with the BMW R 18; to take a shot at the heavyweight cruiser market, which has long been dominated by iconic American brands like Harley-Davidson and Indian Motorcycle. With the big, 1800 cc boxer-twin engine sticking out of the sides, the period-correct classic lines and the overall styling, the motorcycle oozes raw sex appeal. Needless to say, it is a gorgeous piece of machinery to say the least and it also won the two-wheeler design of the year at the 2021 carandbike awards.
