BMW Motorrad R nine T and K 1600 B

Bike India - - IGNITION -

BMW MOTORRAD HAVE LAUNCHED THEIR COOL MOD­ERN RETRO BIKE, THE R NineT Racer, the base vari­ant in the line-up, and the K 1600 B, a mas­sive tour­ing ma­chine. The Racer sports a price tag of Rs 17.30 lakh, with the K 1600 B cost­ing Rs 29 lakh, both prices ex-show­room.

The R nineT Racer is styled to rep­re­sent the Café Racer era and it does a great job. The bike is powered by the sig­na­ture Boxer-twin en­gine that the rest of the line-up uses, pro­duc­ing 110 PS and 116 Nm, and is mated to a six-speed gear­box with shaft fi­nal drive. The bike comes with con­ven­tional tele­scopic front fork, a steel fuel tank, two-into-one ex­haust, and a sin­glesided swingarm.

Next up is the K 1600 B, the mas­sive tour­ing ma­chine that was aimed at the Amer­i­can mar­ket. It fea­tures the 1,649-cc, straight-six en­gine that pro­duces 160 PS and 175 Nm, mated to a six-speed gear­box with a shaft fi­nal drive. The bike is styled quite sharply for a tour­ing-fo­cused ma­chine, giv­ing it an al­most cus­tom look. It comes loaded with fea­tures, no­tably the hard-case pan­niers, wide han­dle­bars, ad­justable wind­screen, and those com­fort­able seats.

Both the bikes are avail­able with a num­ber of op­tional ac­ces­sories that al­low you to per­son­alise your bike.
