The R 18 Roctane is a synonym for pure nonchalance. Appearance: Bagger. Comfort: touring motorcycle. Personality: custom factory hot rod. It is driven by the powerful big boxer engine. Ride it and every country road turns into Route 66. Its style is unconventional: black and matt – that’s what joy can look like. At least for those who bring #SoulFuel to life. Bagger outline, dragster seat and mini ape-hanger demonstrate that this is not a bog-standard bike. Want even more rock 'n' roll? The bike ready for customising. All you need to do is own it!

Character: independent

This extroverted bike does not adapt. It stands out despite its dark colours. Or precisely because of them. The three versions emphasise its different facets. You like doing your own thing? Take it to another level with customising.

Black storm metallic

Rock 'n' roll ex works: black in black. It celebrates its rebellious character in Black storm metallic.

Mineral grey metallic matt

It doesn't get any cooler than this: the R 18 Roctane in optionally available Mineral grey metallic matt.

Manhattan metallic matt

Your bike, your rules

Even more extrovert? Even cooler? Lend it your unique character. For this purpose, we offer a wide range of optional accessories, such as the Filler Panels or the Machined series by Roland Sands Design. A single seat is available for lonely riders. It goes without saying that you can take customising even further. There are no limits to your ideas.

The first step is the easiest – the A2 variant of the R 18 Roctane.

The R 18 Roctane is also available with 35 kW (48 hp) to suit holders of a European A2 driving licence. Consequently, you can enjoy this bike when you are on the road with your European A2 driving licence. This means that you can make the most of the R 18 Roctane's intuitive handling from the very beginning. More information is available here.

Big boxer for long tours

A bike like a statement – an uncompromising ride. It goes without saying that this bike features the largest boxer engine we offer. Generating consistently high torque, it guarantees sheer riding pleasure on long journeys. You can rely on 150 Nm between 2,000 and 4,000 rpm. At 4,750 rpm, our big boxer delivers a whopping 67 kW (91 hp). The exposed, high-gloss, nickel-plated Cardan shaft makes power transmission impressively visible.
