Press Release 37|2021 - The Coronation of the R 18 Tank

The Coronation of the R 18 Tank

The shiny chrome tank railing from Wunderlich for the BMW R 18 enters the market with immaculate presence

The standard black tank of the R 18 already looks elegant and classic as it is. However, combined with the chrome fuel filler cap, tank trim, and the BMW logo, Wunderlich‘s tank rail puts the crown on the tank and serves as a proper coronation.

The BMW accessory specialists from Grafschaft emphasize the importance that the tank rail gleams not only in terms of aesthetics but also in terms of practical value. As always, this is what you can expect from Wunderlich.
The tank rail underlines the noble appearance of the R 18 in three ways; its stylish design, the carefully matched pipes in their respective dimensions, and the high-gloss chrome finish.  The shape of the tank railing follows the curvature of the tank and skillfully integrates the tank cap and the chrome tank cover on the saddle side.

It can transport various types of luggage (up to 5 kg in weight).

The three-point attachment to the frame on both sides of the steering head and the tank cover serves as a solid base. In addition, the tubular structure made of precision steel tubing with 16 and 12 mm diameters provides the necessary component rigidity. They are arranged in such a way that lashing straps can be securely attached.

Therefore, we recommend the chrome-plated tank railing for all R 18 riders who want to contrast the chrome and the deep, shiny black paint surface of their big boxer.


The same in black

Wunderlich also offers the tank rail in a glossy black version (Item-No.: 11880-002), ideal in combination with other black components and accessories.
