BMW R 18 Roctane

Dynamic Cruising

The R 18 Roctane is a synonym for pure nonchalance. Appearance: Bagger. Comfort: touring motorcycle. Personality: custom factory hot rod. It is driven by the powerful big boxer engine. Ride it and every country road turns into Route 66. Its style is unconventional: black and matt – that’s what joy can look like. At least for those who bring #SoulFuel to life. Bagger outline, dragster seat and mini ape-hanger demonstrate that this is not a bog-standard bike. Want even more rock 'n' roll? The bike ready for customising. All you need to do is own it!

More than a bike – your statement

The iconic front with round LED headlight and 21-inch cast aluminium wheel leads the way towards the horizon. You are casually gripping the mini ape-hanger and resting your feet on the standard footboards, while the dragster seat gives you perfect support on long tours. The elongated bagger outline flows straight to the stylish rear end featuring hard-shell cases.  This bike is an eye-catcher. Unmistakable: the unique boxer sound from the striking, dark chrome rear silencer.
