The Design of the K 1600 B

Unmistakeably Bagger. Unmistakeably different.

As it should be for a Bagger, it is brimming with presence and is made for gliding along. The sloping line of the silhouette makes the K 1600 B flat and streamlined. The "Blackstorm Metallic" colour in combination with the various black tones give the Bagger its shape and make it appear imposing and confident at the same time. The chopped windscreen and the striking rear section with LED indicators and brake lights integrated into the cases define the style. The black 6-cylinder completes the strong-charactered overall image. And with the standard tubular handlebars, the Bagger can be easily steered towards the horizon.

  • "Intelligent emergency call": the quick response in case of an accident and in emergency situations thanks to the ECALL system from BMW Motorrad.

    The good feeling is always along for the ride.

    BMW Motorrad is the first manufacturer to provide the "intelligent emergency call" ex works: a system fitted firmly on the handlebar, which in case of emergency can independently and automatically trigger the rescue chain and in so doing facilitate faster aid from the emergency services. The "intelligent emergency call" automatically becomes active following a light to heavy accident. But the rider can also manually trigger an emergency call at the push of a button, if for instance he/she has observed an accident. After activating the system, either automatically or manually, the GPS data of the location and the direction of travel of the motorcycle is sent via mobile phone connection to a BMW call centre. From here, the rescue chain is activated. For fast, precise help. And a great feeling on every tour.

  • Dynamic ESA: unevenness ironed flat.

    For the best road contact.

    The standard Dynamic ESA once again significantly increases the first-class riding comfort of the K 1600 GTL. It ensures the best traction, safety and the highest level of comfort: dynamic ESA controls the suspension depending on the driving condition and riding manoeuvres by automatically adjusting to the detected conditions. In doing so, it ensures significantly improved contact between road and tyre, even when in a lean. Enabling riding characteristics which are always stable and an added boost in comfort and safety – especially on those long tours.

    More Dynamic ESA
  • Reverse assistant: effortlessly manoeuvring and getting out of parking spaces.

    Simply reverse.

    Steep paths and narrow space conditions at popular look-out points or parking spots are no issue with the convenient torque control assist (TCA). Leaving you with only a smile for parking and manoeuvring. Activate the reverse assist by putting the bike into neutral and activating the assist function using the button on the left handlebar. As soon as the R is shown on the display and started by pressing it, you can glide out of your parking space with ease and get going on to your next destination with ample momentum.
