2022 BMW K 1600 B

The revised engine, new "Next Gen" ESA, and updated electronics make it even better

Style packages add customization options that include “The Casual One” that adds chrome bits and bobs that stand out in stark relief against the dark bodywork. “The Cool One” adds a short screen and touring tweaks.

The base-model, blackout K 1600 B is labeled “The Straightforward One,” and there's “The Exclusive One” in Manhattan Metallic Matt.

If you really want to set yourself apart from the pack, the Option 719 “Midnight” package is dubbed “The Elegant One.”

The Midnight carries a water-transfer over the base coat with a two-component clear finish –all hand done – that represents an entire galaxy for a truly unique finish that makes each unit a unique work of art.

Power for the K 1600 B comes from a newly-revised in-line six-cylinder engine with a whopping 160 horsepower at 6,750 rpm.

Yeah, the horsepower isn't increased, but it comes on 1k sooner for a significant improvement over the previous generation.

Torque is now 133 lb-ft that still comes on fully at 5,250 rpm

for superior pulling power and even more powerful acceleration.

The real magic lies in the Dynamic Electronic Suspension Adjustment feature

that automatically adjusts the trinity of variables fore and aft and automatically compensates for changes in load.

Electronic wizardry is apparent in the 10.25-inch color TFT display where you monitor the mundane metrics, access electronic rider systems,

pull up other infotainment options, and pipe in your favorite jams through the new Audio System 2.0.

Rider amenities include adaptive cornering lights, dynamic traction control, ride modes,

engine-brake control, heated seat and grips, hill-start control, and reverse assist.

MSRP starts at $25.5k with available accessories and style packages to make it your own.
