BMW R 18 Classic First Edition Features
The new R 18 Classic First Edition is very similar to the Standard variant of the motorcycle. However, to make it more touring friendly, BMW Motorrad has implemented a few changes. For example, it comes with a slightly redesigned pillion seat for enhanced comfort, a pair of leather-finished saddlebags to keep your luggage, and a smaller 16-in front wheel. There’s also a windshield to protect the rider from the wind blast, especially while cruising at high speeds which is like a walk in the park for this machine. BMW Motorrad has also slapped on extra LED auxiliary lights.
