In the world of motorbikes, it looks like it's only really BMW that has such a big range of cool bikes, able to cater for all walks of life. Sometimes it’s not all about speed and performance, it can also be about style and cruising, and that’s where the BMW R 18 range comes in. The automaker’s R 18 range is already full of cool bikes, and what you see here is the fifth to be released, and it goes by the cool name of the BMW R 18 Roctane, a touring cruiser in a custom bagger style. This R 18 harks back to the history and tradition of BMW Motorrad while combining state-of-the-art motorcycle technology with the design and charm of times gone by and the results are very easy on the eyes. Under the skin, the BMW R 18 Roctane takes tech and influence from the BMW R 5 and this puts focus back on the essentials of motorcycling: Purist, no-frills technology with the iconic boxer engine as the epicentre of pure riding pleasure. BMW has done a great job of blending classic design and contemporary technology creating an awesome overall concept with a great “streamlining design”. To make this particular R 18 even sweeter it features the most powerful BMW boxer engine of all time, and it’s finished in matt black metallic with high-gloss black covers, and the attached exhaust system and star counter nuts are in dark chrome.
Take a look at the YouTube video that showcases the latest addition to the BMW R18 range of cruisers and tourers, which is now the 5th one in the lineup. This super clean matt black, boxer-powered bike oozes cool and style and cool like no other. With over 1 800cc of capacity and 42 litres of luggage space, this is the kind of bike that can see you transversing the country in an epic road trip: The new BMW R 18 Roctane | CWMedia
