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.
This K 1600 B is quite literally unique. Option 719 Midnight’s highlight is the Meteoric Dust II Metallic paintwork. Its challenging water transfer paint represents an entire galaxy. This is where each K 1600 B becomes a truly unique piece of art.
There are two other available colors in this model: Manhattan Metallic Matte (Style Exclusive) and Black Storm Metallic.
With the K 1600, you can always do a little more. Not only in terms of mileage. Thanks to extensive optional equipment and Original BMW Motorrad Accessories, you can turn the bagger into exactly the bike you want. Optionally benefit from the Comfort Package and Tour Package. The comfort package features Keyless Ride and Shift Assist Pro – for even more relaxed cruising. The Tour Package, for example, impresses with the audio system 2.0 or comfortable footboards. We have put together two equipment variants to inspire you.
DESIGN CODE – TYPICALLY BAGGER
The K 1600 B is proof that you can swim against the tide if things are streamlined. The elongated, typical bagger outline with its low rear section combines an elegant, casual character with a powerful presence. The entire bike has been fully geared towards you and your perfect tour: from things that are immediately obvious, such as the footboards, to the equipment you can only experience once you have taken a seat, such as the cockpit. It demonstrates a completely new design idiom: clear-cut and functional. The 10.25″ TFT color 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.
SUPERIOR SIX-CYLINDER IN-LINE ENGINE
Can you measure a casual character in numbers? You can with the K 1600 B: thanks to its revamped engine control unit, it now develops the 160 hp nominal power an impressive 1,000 rpm earlier than before, while the increased maximum torque of 132.7 lbs-ft is already available at 5,250 rpm: for even more intensity, superior tractive force and a more powerful appearance. For every straight line, every overtaking maneuver, every bend – or just for you. In keeping with this, the Ride Modes have now been designed to be even more emotional, with the engine drag torque control (dynamic engine brake control) and Dynamic ESA providing the necessary stability. And all of this is as casual to handle as it sounds.
