Like most large-ca­pac­ity BMWs, the K 1600 B comes in with a long list of op­tions, which in some mar­kets are com­bined to cre­ate a fam­ily of mod­els. Stan­dard fea­tures in­clude xenon head­lights, heated grips and seat, cruise con­trol and the multi-con­troller ring. In the UK, the pop­u­lar op­tions of adap­tive headlight, day­time run­ning light, cen­tre-stand, hill start con­trol and tyre pres­sure mon­i­tor are added to cre­ated the K 1600 B SE.

Most B-bike buy­ers are also likely to want the au­dio sys­tem and re­verse gear op­tions, which are in­cluded to give the UK mar­ket’s top-spec model, the K 1600 B LE. The test bikes in­cluded all those op­tions plus foot­boards, crash-bars and the Com­fort Plus pack­age of key­less ig­ni­tion, gearshift as­sist pro, cen­tral lock­ing, LED fog lights and alarm. In to­tal, that added just over 25 per cent to the price of the base­model K 1600 B.
