The BMW K 1600 B is the bagger version of the K 1600 GTL.
The bike sports the traditional bagger design language with its low, stretched-out look and sweeping rear section. The bike loses the top-box and sports a short, electronically adjustable windscreen to complement its bagger design. The large fairing has been revised for better wind and weather protection. It gets all-black components, unlike its chrome-loaded rivals.
At the heart of the BMW K 1600 B is the 1649cc in-line six cylinder engine that produces 158bhp and 175Nm and is mated to a six-speed gearbox with reverse gear and a final shaft drive. It also gets a quickshifter as an optional accessory. The bike gets three power modes- Road, Cruise and Rain along with ABS Pro, Dynamic Traction Control (DTC), heated grips and seat heating.
It rides on BMW’s Duolever suspension system up front and the Paralever suspension at the rear with a monoshock. The K1600 B weighs 336kg and gets a 26.5 litre fuel tank along with 37-litre panniers to boost its touring capabilities.
The BMW K1600B competes against the Harley-Davidson Road King and the Indian Chief Vintage and is priced at Rs 29 lakhs (ex-showroom).
