The All-New MY 2018 K 1600 B

MSRP – $19,995 (As announced during Daytona Bike Week in March)

Largely based on the K 1600 GT and GTL, the K 1600 B was developed specifically with American riders and great open American roads in mind. It features a spectacular backward sloping linear design with a specifically engineered rear section to reflect the characteristics of a grand American tourer. This not only makes the bagger appear low-lying and slender, but a new rear frame also contributes to this aesthetic by significantly reducing the height of the passenger seat.

  • Inspired by the Concept 101
  • 1649 cc, 6-cylinder engine: 160 hp /129 lb-ft.
  • Reduced to the essentials with a focus on styling, an elongated, streamlined profile, and potential for customization.

Comparison between BMW K 1600 B vs. GT/GTL:

  • K 1600 B rear bodywork is completely redesigned:
    • New rear frame (2.8” lower).
    • Restyled, lower passenger seat: improved comfort/accessibility.
    • Streamlined cases w/ light bars/folding mudguard.
    • Horizontal chrome mufflers.
  • Optional vs. standard storage compartments (more leg room; optional footrests).
  • Modified handlebars, chopped windshield, wind deflectors stretched back.

With the exception of a center stand, the Bagger comes with the same standard equipment as the K 1600 GT:

  • 3 riding modes (Rain, Road, and Dynamic).
  • Dynamic Traction Control (DTC).
  • Cornering-optimized integral ABS Pro.
  • Heated seats and hand grips.
  • Power adjustable windshield.
  • Cruise control.
  • Multifunction display with on-board computer.
  • Dynamic Electronic Suspension Adjustment (D-ESA) with “Road” and “Cruise” damping modes.
  • LED rear light and xenon headlight with dynamic leveling.

The packages for the bagger are almost identical to the K 1600 GT. The only exception is the Touring Package, which is not yet available on the GT:

  • Touring Package ($1,850 MSRP): Reverse Assist and Audio System with Radio, Sirius, GPS Prep, Bluetooth and Radio Software. If ordered with Premium Package, the price of the Touring Package is $445 MSRP, as Premium Package already includes all of this equipment except Reverse Assist.
    • Luxury Plus Package ($1,410 MSRP): Keyless Ride, Gear Shift Assist Pro, Central Locking System, LED Auxiliary Lights, Anti-Theft Alarm.
    • Safety Plus Package ($735 MSRP): Adaptive Headlight, Hill Start Control, Tire Pressure Monitor (TPM).
    • Audio, Communication & GPS Prep Package ($1,405 MSRP): Audio System with Radio, Sirius, GPS Prep, Bluetooth and Radio Software.
    • Premium Package ($3,550 MSRP): includes three of the above packages.

    The single factory options that are available outside of packages for the bagger are similar to the K 1600 GT, but include a number of additional individual options listed below:

    • Storage Compartment ($200 MSRP) not available w/ Floorboards.
    • Keyless Ride ($350 MSRP).
    • Gear Shift Assist Pro, providing clutchless up/down shifts ($475 MSRP).
    • Floorboards ($200 MSRP) not available with Storage Compartment. Must be ordered with Engine Protection Bars.

    • Forged Handlebars ($200 MSRP).
    • LED Auxiliary Lights ($450 MSRP).
    • Anti-Theft Alarm ($395 MSRP).
    • Center Stand ($175 MSRP).
    • Engine Protection Bars ($200 MSRP).
    • Low Seat: 29.6” ($0) – Available soon.
