BMW Motorrad USA announces details for K 1600 B Bagger
March 21, 2017: BMW Motorrad USA has announced the pricing and product highlights for its K 1600 B, the BMW bagger developed specifically with American riders and roads in mind. The 2018 K 1600 B will have an MSRP of $19,995 (plus a $495 destination fee).
Largely based on the technology used in the BMW 6-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 not only makes the Bagger appear low-lying and slender; but also significantly reduces the height of the passenger seat.
The Bagger’s 1,649 cc in-line six-cylinder engine produces 160 hp and 129 lb-ft 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.
Like other BMW motorcycle models, buyers can enhance the K 1600 B with option packages that include 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; and Touring Package (reverse assist, GPS preparation, and audio system with radio, Sirius XM, and Bluetooth).
