    Meh.

    But, I hope it sells well so as to subsidize BMW's sport-touring and adventure-touring offerings. I'm betting buyers will be surprised at the cost of their first 18k service.

    I think many will be surprised at the number sold, many cruisers (Harley) might go for it, especially once ridden!

    I'm sure its a fine bike but it just doesn't do anything for me.

    I like the looks as well as the Harley Bagger and better than the Honda Bagger.
    BMW did a better job than their first try at a cruiser.

    No big surprise to anyone who owned a K1300

    Roger that, but a definite surprise to the H-D or Japanese cruiser owner expected to make up "conquest sales" on the new product...

    What has happened to BMW? IMO, that thing is the worse looking motorcycle BMW has ever built.
    PS: I hope they can't sell ANY. I wouldn't park next to one.

    Aw come on Gail, use your imagination. After several hundreds of dollars in aftermarket chrome, some leather fringe and straight pipes, and you'll love it.

    IF any of them get ridden that many miles. That is a lot of summer weekend trips to the bar and back....

    I'm not interested in buying a Bagger, but I'm glad BMW gives us several choices.

    Looks comfortable Perhaps this is BMW's way of providing a touring bike with what appears to be a comfortable seat height.



    http://www.cycleworld.com/2017-bmw-k1600b-first-look

    Just in- Seat height-

    The K 1600 B's frame is lowered per bagger tradition. The back end has been slammed compared to the GT, with the rear seat height being 2.75 inches lower.
