The K family spans four models that use the same base, but take each for a different specific use.
In the GTL intended for long-term trips for two riders, you can find an additional rear box with a generous backrest for the vehicle.
The GT version forgoes the box in favor of a lower center of gravity and a sportier riding experience.
The K1600B is BMW's interpretation of the American "bugger" motorcycles, those that are on the seam between touring and custom motorcycles with flowing lines and a low profile.
The Grand America is a sort of touring version of the B that adds a rear box and luxury accessories to a motorcycle designed for longer riding ranges.
