The two models were technically unveiled by different divisions of BMW.

BMW unveiled the i Vision AMBY, which is a high-speed electric bicycle.

The company’s motorcycle division, BMW Motorrad, unveiled the Vision AMBY. That little “i” makes a big difference.

Of all the ways one can think of unwinding and putting a hectic work week behind, a motorcycle ride is the ultimate de-stress pill. At least that is what works for us, so when we had the chance to head out on a 500km road trip with two purpose-built touring machines, we grabbed the opportunity with both hands.

The motorcycles in question present their own unique flavour of sport touring. The Kawasaki Versys 1000 is a proven Japanese machine, with an inline-four engine shared with the venerable Kawasaki Ninja 1000 SX. On the other side, we have the BMW F

2022 BMW R 18 B

Sauerkraut, bratwurst, red cabbage, Bavarian beer, German engineering. If it is German, I like it. My mother came to America in her 20s from Bavaria, met my father, and the rest was history. For my entire life, I was fed a steady diet of everything German. I grew up in love with German cars and later motorcycles.

Last week BMW unveiled two new touring machines, the new R 18 B and R 18 Transcontinental, based on the 1,802cc horizontally opposed Big Boxer twin that we’ve previously seen in the R 18 and R 18 Classic.

The Transcontinental and B models see a steeper rake and shortened wheelbase compared to the R 18 and R 18 classic, as well as a larger gas tank and

The New BMW R 18 Transcontinental Is A Luxurious Grand American Tourer

admin

What is it that constitutes a grand American touring motorcycle? Simply being a cruiser motorcycle just won’t cut it. In fact, BMW already has a version of the K1600 that’s even called the Grand America. But that just won’t cut it. It’s the essence of being wild and free and simply soaking in the landscape until the horizon comes knocking. There’s a certain kind of highway utopia that only the rumble of a big-bore twin-cylinder can assuage. It’s like a massage for the soul. Think Peter Fonda in Easy Rider and then deny that wanting to emulate the outlaw life
