R18 Transcontinental has been introduced by BMW Motorrad in India. Priced at Rs. 31.50 lakh, the motorcycle (ex-showroom).
The BMW R18 cruiser is available in three different models: R18, R18 Classic, and the R18 Transcontinental, which has cast alloy wheels, a big handlebar-mounted fairing with a windscreen, wind deflectors, and a seat for the passenger.
The R18 Transcontinental was created to be a replica of the traditional American touring bike. It has a teardrop-shaped fuel tank with double pinstripes, circular mirrors, and an exposed gloss nickel-plated driveshaft. It is built on a twin cradle frame.
BMW’s 1,802cc 2-cylinder air/oil-cooled boxer engine is the engine that drives the R18 Transcontinental. It has a 6-speed transmission with an optional reverse gear that generates 90 BHP at 4,750 rpm and 158 Nm at 3,000 rpm.
Rain, Roll, and Rock are the three normal riding modes for the bike. In addition, the vehicle has a 10.25-inch TFT colour display, Active Cruise Control, Automated Stability Control, Dynamic Engine Brake Control, Hill Start Control, Keyless Ride, and adaptable LED headlights.
With travel-dependent damping and adjustable spring preload, the Transcontinental’s directly mounted cantilever suspension strut is equipped. It comes with a single disc brake in back and dual disc brakes up front.
