BMW Motorrad USA K 1600 BThe 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:

o New rear frame (2.8” lower).

o Restyled, lower passenger seat: improved comfort/accessibility.

o Streamlined cases w/ light bars/folding mudguard.

o Horizontal chrome mufflers.

  • Optional vs. standard storage compartments (more leg room; optional footrests).
  • Modified handlebars, chopped windshield, wind deflectors stretched back.

Standard Features:

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.

Packages:

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.

Factory Options:

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).

  • Travis Donald

    Thanks for the info. I was hoping​ the 310GS price would be in here. Canada has had the price up for a while.

  • JMDGT

    I may be wrong but I think the bagger will sell for them. I’d like the 310 better at 4 grand. Maybe a little more if it proves better than the others in this class.

    • Sayyed Bashir

      Yeah, BMW, like everyone else, trying to capture the Harley Street Glide market. The Harley faithful will not buy it, nor will BMW riders.

      • JMDGT

        Bagger guys might buy it. It is a nice machine at a competitive price.

        • Sayyed Bashir

          I am glad you said “might” buy it. What bagger guys are there other than Harley riders?

          • JMDGT

            The world does not revolve around Harley. Metric cruiser guys might like it.

      • Paragon Lost

        I was actually considering it. I’ve got a Road Glide Special right now but now that I’m down here in the south the heat is a bear on a air cooled bike like that. I’m just not happy at all with the one color scheme and a color that I’m really tired of, black.

      • Many folks on the K1600 forum have already expressed interest ranging from “TAKE MY MONEY NOW!” to “Looks good, can’t wait to see it in-person.”

        • Sayyed Bashir

          I’ll believe it when I see it on the road.

      • Rvaughn101

        I ride a 2015 Street Glide now. I’m going to sell it to buy this bike. Can’t wait.

  • Bmwclay

    Baggers are about torque down low, not HP up high. Honda found out the hard way, FB6, etc. So will BMW.

    • The bike puts out 107 lbs/ft. @ only 2,500 rpm. That’s more than the MAX torque of any stock H-D (which I assume you’re using as the basis for comparison for a bagger) and within 4 lbs/ft of the max of any catalog-upgraded H-D absent a swap of engine internals.

  • Paragon Lost

    I’m annoyed that the new bike is only being offered in black. I was hoping for a few color options. I’m tired of black bikes.
