Some call the bikes retro, vintage or classics. We call them Heritage. A glance at the iconic design and the unmistakable boxer engine shows that it’s about design, handling, minimalist design. It’s a way of life. And if you want to go even further: our Heritage models are the perfect basis for customising.
The R 18 family
Boasting 1,802 cc, the most powerful boxer engine ever built by BMW Motorrad is an unmissable centrepiece. The double cradle frame, telescopic forks, teardrop-shaped tank or even the double lines are iconic design features rooted in our history.

The R 12 family
Legends live longer. The R 12 models bring an unmistakable look to the road with their minimalist design language and unique roadster style. They are powered by a next stage of evolution of the Boxer engine. Otherwise, hardly a screw was left in its thread during development. The backbone designed for customising with a classic tubular spaceframe has been completely redeveloped. Can you hear the call? Express your inimitability.

Much more than just motorcycles
We make our clothing with the same passion we dedicate to making our bikes. And with the same focus on quality: for minimalist and classic looks that don’t show off their high levels of functionality and protection, additionally giving you complete freedom of movement in your everyday life.
BMW R 18 The Wal
Customiser Shinya Kimura created an unmistakable, one-off R 18 and named it The Wal. In his workshop, he combined expert craftsmanship with Japanese aesthetics and the brute force of the 1,802 cc big boxer engine.
