    Can we appreciate him for taking that 1.8 litre engine without dropping it down. Even interceptor is too heavy for me😵

    Such a beautiful bike it definitely is.... Liking how BMW took the risk to have open shaft to Rear wheel.... That is gonna give a lot of attention the massive air turbulence it will make i can only imagine

    Just one question! Spoked rims, do they mean tubed tyres? At 350kg I don’t think anyone would dare to push this beast with a punctured tyre!

    It kinda looks ugly.. Doesn't even feel like a BMW product. The engine bulge is a huge negative.

    Great review. Now I want this bike very badly, even though I understand that it's impossible for me to afford one! 😝

    The R18 is quite the bike, but a bit too expensive?!

    I don't get it why can't the cruisers look modern. For eg. have digital instrument control, good led lights etc.

    That torque is so much that it will obliterate many cruisers and with that power in such 2k rpm is just wow. And air cooled blend with oil cooling 😐. Oh my my.

    I doubt 5.03 statement. It's not better than Harley. For its price you'll get much better Harley in touring chassis. It's 33 rake angle is it's death nail. Harley has stopped breakout dur to that

  • vigneshbalasubramani
