You already realise why the Big Boxer is called exactly that when you start it up. You can feel the vast displacement on every metre along the way. With its typical boxer power development, you can rely on a minimum of 150 Nm between 2,000 and 4,000 rpm. The impressive torque and unspoilt responsiveness guarantee fully-fledged pleasure in the long term – relaxed, but never boring. And the exposed, nickel-plated Cardan shaft demonstrates just how much history we have packed into these 1802 ccs. What now? Time to write your own history.
