CONFIRMED: BMW R 18 With A Bat-Wing Fairing Is Next In Line

BMW Motorrad is planning to expand the R 18 range after launching the R 18 First Edition and The R 18 Classic.

The latest patents filed by the German marquee revealed that the R 18 is getting a touring makeover. Thus, becoming the third variant for the motorcycle.

Like the R 18 First Edition and the R 18 Classic, the new model is expected to retain the “Big Boxer” 1,802cc engine; however, it will receive other major updates and redesigned.

The motorcycle seems to have a thicker dual seat based on the image file, a bigger teardrop-shaped fuel tank to increase fuel-range and the obvious bat-wing fairing.

Looking at the dash, the new R 18 might come with a large TFT screen located below the two (suspected) analogue meter while at right and left panel is expected to include a speaker.

There is also a more noticeable front fender (mudguards) than the one found on the standard R 18.
