BMW Motorrad USA just announced a stellar addition to the R 18 family with the 2022 R 18 B “Bagger” which delivers attractive styling, new infotainment experiences with superb short-distance cruising and long-distance touring comfort whether riding solo or two-up with baggage. The German Bagger does without a top case and offers a low windshield, a slimmer seat, and a matt black metallic engine finish.
