The internal code “719” at BMW Motorrad always stood for high-quality special equipment. Now BMW Motorrad has revealed the Option 719 accessories for the BMW R18 and R18 Classic. The brand has also announced that the accessories will be available from September 2021. The new Option 719 accessories further enhance the possibilities of customizing the R 18 and R 18 Classic according to the customer’s preferences.

BMW Motorrad R 18 and R 18 Classic

In September 2020, BMW Motorrad launched the R 18, strengthening the brand’s Heritage Cruiser portfolio. In February 2021, the brand introduced the R 18 Classic iteration that features a large windshield, and a pillion seat LED auxiliary lamps, a 16-inch front wheel and saddlebags. The R 18 Classic reverberates with the classic American cruisers and tourer, but both models are rooted in the tradition of historic BMW motorcycles.

The covers are made from aluminium sheet and feature a brushed, colourless anodized surface. The headcovers draw inspiration from the air vents nostalgic of the “streamliners” from the 1920s and 1930s era. The highlight badge is made from solid copper and plated in chrome, and a white finish with the “719” number finished in the vintage enamel.
