BMW – R 18 Transcontinental

Traveling Broadens the Mind

The R 18 Transcontinental looks like it could just eat up the miles.

The large front fender and the striking front end with both auxiliary headlights form the starting point for the elegant streamlined design.

The 6.3 gallon tank, wind deflectors, floorboards and the topcase with backrest for the passenger complete the clearly defined look.
