Grand touring bikes offer the ultimate riding experience when you are hitting the highway, with special equipment for smooth running and long-range comfort. The BMW K 1600 GT combines one of the brand’s most popular engines with a broad range of standard features, resulting in a bike that handles the long haul with ease and looks good doing it.
The BMW K 1600 GT features BMW Motorrad’s legendary 1,649 cc inline six-cylinder engine. Generating a satisfying 160 horsepower and 129 lb-ft of torque, this liquid-cooled four-stroke engine is tuned for incredibly smooth acceleration and power delivery. It’s exceptionally balanced, delivering both excitement and efficiency: fuel efficiency is set at 41 mpg using the World Motorcycle Test Cycle and tested with premium unleaded gasoline.
The BMW K 1600 GT features standard ABS Pro, which helps ensure safe braking even when the bike is leaning. Dynamic Electronic Suspension Adjustment monitors road conditions and driving style, reacting to changes by controlling the damping action. The result of this technology is a bike that is comfortable and stable even when leaning into turns.
The BMW K 1600 GT is available with a wide variety of optional features aimed at enhancing your on-road experience. The Reverse Assist system makes backing out of parking spaces a safer and more effortless matter. Additionally, the Adaptive Headlight illuminates the road around turns at night by using a servo motor to rotate the headlight to make up for the rider’s banking angle. These features provide added peace of mind and confidence when riding.
A true grand touring bike would be incomplete without available luggage compartments. The K 1600 GT is offered with an optional topcase, tank bag and touring cases, each matching the K 1600 GT’s sporty design and high standard of quality.
The BMW K 1600 GT brings together BMW Motorrad’s strongest qualities: its engine design, its advanced systems and its desirable features. The result is a bike perfect for adventure and ready for the road.
