Take a relaxed cruise anytime.
If you’re hungry for asphalt and for new horizons, then the Bagger is the motorcycle for your journey. With its six cylinders, it delivers impressive power and extraordinary running smoothness. Let the journey begin. You and the bike become one with the road in the Bagger silhouette: the chopped windscreen and the striking rear ensure an unmistakable appearance. Behind its good looks is a great deal of innovative technology and a high level of comfort. So get going with the K 1600 B.
Unmistakably Bagger. Unmistakably different.
This bagger is made for gliding along. Brimming with presence, the sloping line of the silhouette makes the K 1600 B low and streamlined. The Black Storm Metallic color, combined with the various black tones, gives the Bagger its shape and makes 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 character and overall image. And with the standard tubular handlebars, the Bagger can be easily steered towards the horizon.
No distance is too far.
The 1600 6-cylinder in-line engine ensures the desired dynamics with smooth power delivery that is unmatched. Its maximum torque of 129 lb-ft (175 Nm) and 160 hp (118 kW) develop an incomparable and effortless thrust. At 1500 rpm, 70% of torque is already achieved. This means even the smallest movement of your wrist results in impressive acceleration. After arriving at your destination, the Reverse Assist option ensures effortless maneuvering. By choosing Keyless Ride you add another technical highlight that perfectly rounds off the overall package.
Endless riding pleasure.
The standard dynamic ESA (Electronic Suspension Adjustment) provides optimum handling and riding dynamics. In addition, the "CRUISE" setting ensures soft damping comfort. The optional floorboards offer a relaxed foot-forward riding position. With additional options like the audio system with Satellite Radio and Bluetooth, Hill Start Control (HSC), Shift Assist Pro, Central Locking/Alarm, and additional storage compartments, you can improve your riding experience in a fully customized way. With a relaxed posture and an unmistakable presence, you are guaranteed to draw looks from your fellow riders.
