The BMW R 18 Classic is based on double cradle frame. It has a teardrop shaped fuel tank with double pinstripes and an exposed driveshaft reminiscent of the boxer from 1936. The bike features a circular instrument cluster and LED headlights with sickle shaped LED daytime running lights.

I don't think forward mounted controls can be added to this. Obviously one would use this cruiser for long distance touring. The seating posture somehow does not seem comfortable for an extended period of time. You can just stretch your legs over the crash guard for a bit.
