Surprised not to see a section on here for the R 18.
No Sir, but it sure is nice looking. Now if it had another 50hp, maybe. But at 942 pounds at 91hp, it seems a bit weak.TravlinLite ,is this your bike?
I said as much on the other site, and so far I have been proven right. Sales have been poor at best.I agree, needs more HP. I think it might be kinda like the R1200C, Harley guys didn't like it and most Beemer guys didn't either.
Did you ride one?About the only thing you can demo if you do not arrive very early. They are always available. JSNS
The current GS has more torque too, depending on your measuring system. But weighs a LOT less. 11 ft pounds of torque can't make up for almost 300 pounds of extra weight.It has a lot more torque (116 vs 92) and that will make up for our plus size passenger and stuff
105.5 pound force-feet (143.0 N⋅m) @ 6,250 rpm
942LBS wow thats ts over 300lbs heavier than the heaviest bike i have ever owned my 1978 xs100 yamaha, and 250lbs heavier than the heaviest bike i ever rode a 2007 yamaha v max.No Sir, but it sure is nice looking. Now if it had another 50hp, maybe. But at 942 pounds at 91hp, it seems a bit weak.
After looking at your Avatar I got a chuckle out your post.There is no room for an R18 forum, The bike is too big
I was close with .9% financing and the deals going on right now but I had to turn away.After reading through the posts it appears everyone has an opinion about the r18's weight and power yet no one has actually ridden one. I've purchased two bikes in the past eight months so how about one of youse guys taking a bullet for the forum - buy the r18 and post your real life impressions here!!
