K 1600 GT

Wanderlust on two wheels.

Being on the move, gaining impressions, experiencing a great deal, relaxed and yet dynamic riding pleasure: this is what the world looks like from the saddle of the new K 1600 GT. Because it offers you even more dynamics and even more touring comfort: its 6-cylinder in-line engine is already considered an icon with its power delivery and running smoothness. Added to this are the absolute long distance suitability with wind and weather protection and equipment which makes you want to mount the machine right away. With the K 1600 GT, you not only see a great deal, you yourself are also a great sight to behold. Indeed, you leave quite an impression regardless of whether you are at a standstill or on the move.

Dynamics for the eye as well: the design.

Dynamics and comfort, these characteristics of the K 1600 GT are also reflected in the design: The Duolever front suspension, the xenon headlight with Adaptive Headlights, the powerful 6-cylinder engine and the frame make the high-quality overall image really stand out. The front and side view are athletically and sharply depicted and ensure a sporty, streamlined appearance. The 6-in-2 muffler reflects the potential of the 6-cylinder engine both visually and acoustically.
The remarkable appearance of the K 1600 GT is supported by the high-quality paint finish: from exclusively discreet to sportily dynamic. You decide what suits you.

First-class six-pack: the technology.

Technically at the highest level, the equipment fitted as standard on the K 1600 GT leaves nothing more to wish for: ABS Pro, which ensures safe braking even when leaning, the innovative xenon headlight and the multi-controller are just a few of the extras fitted. New to standard production: the dynamic ESA. The chassis recognises and controls the damping action and the angular rate sensor and control units in milliseconds. In doing so, it ensures the best damper settings in every driving situation. Even when leaning, a damping comfort which was not imaginable until now and a resulting constantly stable riding behaviour is achieved.

Legendary: the six-cylinder in-line engine. It makes every ride into pure enjoyment: with its unmatched running smoothness and power delivery, it reliably ensures the desired dynamics. Its 118 kW/160 hp and maximum torque of 175 Nm develop an incomparable and effortless thrust. In doing so, the smallest movement of the hand gives the K 1600 GT a good dose of controllability on tours: responding behaviour and handling from a thoroughbred.

Do you want some more? The optional equipment.

The numerous special accessories such as adaptive headlight, keyless ride or central locking at the touch of a button ensure even more comfort, safety and in turn a relaxed ride. BMW Motorrad is the first motorcycle manufacturer to offer the optional intelligent emergency call ex works, an additional plus in terms of safety. Thanks to the reverse assistant, manoeuvring and getting out of parking spaces is effortless even on steep terrain. The shift assistant Pro ensures even more comfortable and dynamic up-and down-shifting.

With the optional topcase, tank bag and touring cases to complement the generous standard stowage, there are several storing possibilities for everything you want to take with you. Regardless of whether it be on a long journey, a short trip or your daily route through town.

The K 1600 GT keeps its promise when it comes to its sporty appearance and highuality equipment: this is where dynamics and comfort complement each other to ensure pure riding pleasure.
