BMW’ve announced two new variants of their impressive R18 mega-cruiser, both of which fall into the bagger/touring category.
The new bikes have bigger than stock ‘batwing’ fairings (high windshield on the Transcontinental, and lower windshield on the B), a 10.25-inch TFT colour display with integrated map navigation and extensive connectivity, Dynamic Cruise Control (DCC), optional extra Active Cruise Control with integrated distance control for relaxed touring, a Marshall sound system with two-way speakers in the front of the fairing, three attractive colours in addition to black, and heated seats on the Transcontinental too.
Bikes are to be expected in retailers this month, and prices start at £21,500 for the B, and £23,300 for the Transcontinental. Get more info’ from your local BMW dealer or bmw-motorrad.co.uk
