The K 1600 GT-based bagger gets a new rear section for a lower, more stretched-out look and updated side bags that are claimed to have a deeper body. The B’s spec sheet suggests that the seat is non-adjustable (as it is on the GT), but BMW does say that the seat height is significantly lower, especially for the passenger (the rear end is a claimed 2.75 inches lower).
