BMW Motorrad has launched two new products at the 2017 India Bike Week. The two products are the R nineT Racer and the K 1600 B. The former has been launched at Rs 17.3 lakhs and the latter at Rs 29 lakhs, ex-showroom.


The R nineT is a retro-modern motorcycle that looks like a racer from the 1950s, in much the same vein as the Triumph Thruxton R. It is available in BMW Motorsport colours, which only adds to its appeal. It is powered by a 1170cc boxer twin-cylinder engine that generates 110bhp and 116Nm. The K 1600 B is based on the K 1600 GTL but with hard luggage as standard. The windshield on it is electrically adjustable - and there are a ton of options available as well. It is powered by a 1649cc inline six-cylinder engine that makes 158bhp and 175Nm.


The R nineT Racer competes with the Triumph Thruxton R, while the K 1600 B's competition is the Indian Roadmaster and the Harley-Davidson Road Glide Special.
