Home / Motorcycles /Tour / K 1600 GRAND AMERICA





The open road awaits, but even that's not enough for you... You always want to take it further, expand your journey to the horizon - and beyond. With the Grand America, you can relax and enjoy the ride for miles on end.

This full dresser offers the utmost riding pleasure and comfort for carefree cruising as a fully-equipped luxury touring bike. The legendary 6-cylinder in-line engine triumphs all with an unparalleled running smoothness and impressive power development.

The high windshield, distinctive rear and easy-to-use topcase and backrest is complemented by innovative technology and an abundance of space. The Grand America makes the horizon seem boundless - and yet so close.

Shaped by freedom.

There's no denying it: With the iconic sloping line and the steel silencer parallel to the road, this Bagger luxury touring bike appears to become one with the road. The irresistible front and the striking rear with LED indicators and brakes integrated into the cases makes it stand out from the crowd. The powerful black 6-cylinder design leaves no room for doubt: You're enjoying your freedom to the max. This is down to the standard black tubular handlebars which are always within reach. The high-quality plates on the machine's tank proves its purpose - as well as yours: K 1600 Grand America.

Big dreams? No problem.

It's your tour, your dream. Pave your own way with the 6-cylinder in-line engine and its 1649 ccm capacity. For a dynamic experience and superb running smoothness. The maximum torque of 175 Nm and 118 kW (160 HP) develop an incomparable and effortless thrust. You already have a total of 70% of the torque available at 1,500 rpm. You can feel the power even with the smallest turn of the wrist - followed by powerful, relaxed gliding. The reverse assistant ensure effortless manoeuvring when you take a break from riding. You can even continue relaxing for the rest of the ride. Because thanks to Keyless Ride, you can hit the road again quickly and effortlessly.

On and on.

Comfortable cruising with an abundance of space: with the Grand America, you'll never want the journey to end. The standard Dynamic ESA embodies the best possible handling and riding dynamics - the "DYNAMIC" mode allows you to glide even smoother. Rest your legs on the standard footboard - laid-back, typical "American way of ride". The pillion seat height was reduced by 7 cm for even more accessibility, especially when mounting and dismounting the bike - and the foot pegs were also moved down. Furthermore, the standard engine protection bar and the audio system with navigation preparation are guaranteed to impress. The journey continues. Make yourself even more comfortable with the armrest accessory, available on request.
