BMW Motorrad USA has just released pricing and product highlights for its much-anticipated K1600B, the BMW bagger developed specifically with American riders and great open American roads in mind. The 2018 K1600B will have a manufacturer's suggested retail price of $19,995 (plus a $495.00 destination fee).

Largely based on the technology used in the BMW 6-cylinder tourer K1600GT and GTL, the K1600B features a backward sloping linear design with a specifically engineered rear section to reflect the characteristics of an American touring motorcycle. This not only makes the Bagger appear low-lying and slender; but also, thanks to the new rear frame, significantly reduces the height of the passenger seat.

As with the K1600 GT/GTL, the Bagger’s 1,649 cc inline six-cylinder engine produces 160 horsepower 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 K1600B 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
  • Touring Package: Reverse assist, GPS preparation, and audio system with radio, Sirius XM, and Bluetooth
