An Ape Hanger developed in a high design especially for the BMW R 18. A well made Ape Hanger always follows the front fork and deviates – if at all – only minimally from its contour. The length of the front fork and the height of the Ape Hanger also follow balanced proportions.
The at times absurd shapes of Ape Hangers, which are sometimes astounding but are good for nothing other than for show, negatively impact the handling and riding safety to the highest degree – this is true on the highway, but especially on winding country roads or in cities. That’s why here we’re presenting our version of the stylish Ape Hanger, which supports perfectly proportioned, secure handling and provides a pleasant upright seating position. The handlebar ends are ergonomically positioned. This means you always have control of your R 18, while riding and also while manoeuvring. The distinctive handlebar made of inch-thick, high-quality chrome-plated precision steel pipe gives the Big Boxer a brand new, unique look. It fits that the lines for the instruments and indicators can be moved into the handlebar pipes out of sight, thus making them invisible to the eye. The openings required for this are already provided. The original handlebar end weights can be screwed into the ends of the handlebar. The internal threads are already provided.
Alongside the handlebar itself, the delivery includes longer steel flex lines for the clutch and brakes, the cable extension for the indicators as well as the necessary assembly material.
In order to mount the handlebar, the brake and clutch lines must be switched and then vented. Additionally, in order for the grips to be rotation locked, a specialist must drill holes first. We therefore recommend that the assembly only be performed by trained specialist personnel, or even better, by a workshop.
