K 1600 B
CASUAL LUXURY IN BAGGER STYLEBook Test Drive
THE BMW K 1600 B
From visual to practical
There’s a certain coolness that is obvious right away and then there is the coolness you simply radiate from the inside out. Quite simply because you have the confidence in yourself and the elements around you. It’s no different with this version of the K 1600 B: the particularly high-quality Option 719 Classic forged wheel and the casual, short windscreen immediately catch the eye, whereas floor lighting and the intelligent ECALL emergency call give you more of a feeling of safety. The liner and impact protection for the touring cases also give you that comforting feeling of having done everything right.
Your appearance counts
Relaxed cruising in total luxury, always keeping the horizon in sight: this is the world of the K 1600 B. Every moment, every impression counts in this vast expanse. And above all, it’s about the impression you leave behind.
Inspired by the impression of modern, big cities, Style Exclusive in Manhattan metallic matt showcases the dynamics of the K 1600 B particularly impressively and excitingly: with highlights including the front-wheel cover in body colour and the engine spoiler in Night black matt.
In its basic version, the clear-cut lines of the K 1600 B really come into their own. From the front-wheel cover to the engine spoiler and cases, the outline is a homogeneous unit in elegant black.
Option 719 Midnight
Quite literally unique. Option 719 Midnight’s highlight is the Meteoric dust II metallic paintwork. Its challenging water transfer paintwork represents an entire galaxy. This is where each K 1600 B becomes a truly unique piece of kit.
Powerful, luxurious and charismatic.
The BMW K 1600 Bagger and K 1600 Grand America cruise effortlessly into the heart of touring fans with perfect streamlining, impressive power delivery and a lot of comfort equipment. Even the design of the machines is a work of art.
With a strikingly sloping silhouette, both bikes ride ahead confidently. Stylish windscreens and a striking rear area with LED indicators and brake lights integrated in the cases underline this look. The six- cylinder four-stroke in-line engine according to Euro 5 makes relaxed cruising with unique running smoothness an incomparable experience. With 118 kW (160 hp) and a maximum torque of 1800 Nm, it also transforms both bikes into racing machines that sprint from zero to 100 in 3.4 seconds. Both riding styles are perfectly brought onto the asphalt by the electronically controlled Dynamic ESA with automatic riding position compensation with the ROAD and CRUISE riding modes.

The elongated, typical bagger outline with its low rear section combines an elegant, casual character with a powerful presence.

It demonstrates a completely new design idiom: clear-cut and functional. The 10.25" TFT colour display now even features a hardened and anti-reflective cover lens for optimum readability. The K 1600 B leaves everything to you when it comes to experiencing the trip, yet nothing happens by chance.
