Buyer’s Guide Model Detail

Buyer's Guide > K1600B
Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
Cut-down touring bikes are what the public wants, and that's what BMW delivers with the K1600B.  It's not exactly a bagger in the traditional sense, but it's close enough. It's based on the K1600 GTL, but some modifications to the frame, and of course, revised bodywork and luggage. Despite its stripped-down appearance, it's still loaded with features you'd find on a luxury touring bike: electrically adjustable windscreen, and plenty more are available if you're willing to spring for one of the accessory packages. You can see the CMG review here.
