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.
