BMW K 1600 B

BMW Motorrad has announced pricing and product highlights for its much-anticipated K 1600 B, the bagger developed specifically with “American riders and great open American roads in mind.” The 2018 K 1600 B will have an MSRP of $19,995.00 (plus a $495.00 destination fee).

Largely based on the technology used in the BMW six-cylinder tourer K 1600 GT and GTL, the K 1600 B features a spectacular backward sloping linear design with a specifically engineered rear section to reflect the characteristics of a grand American tourer. This makes the bagger appear low-lying and slender, and thanks to the new rear frame, significantly reduces the height of the passenger seat.

As with the K 1600 GT/GTL, the Bagger’s 1,649cc in-line six-cylinder engine produces 160 hp and 129 pound feet of torque. The bike comes standard with three riding modes (Rain, Road, and Dynamic), Dynamic Traction Control, cornering-optimized integral ABS Pro, heated seats and hand grips, power adjustable windshield, cruise control, multifunction display with on-board computer, and Dynamic Electronic Suspension Adjustment (D-ESAR) with Road and Cruise damping modes. Gear Shift Assist Pro, Reverse Assist, Hill Start Control, adaptive headlight, floorboards and more, are all available as options.

Buyers can enhance the K 1600 B with optional packages, including:

  • Safety Package: adaptive headlight, tire pressure monitor (TPM), and Hill Start Control
  • Comfort Package: Gear Shift Assist Pro, central locking system, anti-theft alarm, Keyless Ride, and LED auxiliary lights
  • Touring Package: reverse assist, GPS preparation, and audio system with radio, Sirius XM, and Bluetooth
