Unmistakably Bagger. Unmistakably 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.

Highlights in Detail

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.

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.
