The new BMW K 1600 GTL motorcycle is the pinnacle of high quality and sheer comfort, boasting the legendary straight-six engine. Now standard equipped with the latest generation of Dynamic ESA and ABS Pro. Make your elegant entrance with the newly redesigned panels.

Travelling with the K 1600 GTL takes you to a new dimension – stylish, powerful, luxurious – a first class experience awaits you.

The design: perfection.

The K 1600 GTL design has received a first-class upgrade. The newly designed side panels, radiator grilles, tank trim and storage compartment help you make an even more elegant entrance. Enhancing details like the footrest has helped put the final touches on its exquisite look. Distinctive elements such as Duolever front wheel suspension, the highly visible straight-six engine, the innovative Xenon headlight and the chassis remain pioneers of style. Together with the redesigned front section, including mirror and windscreen, a uniquely elegant and dynamic sculpted alignment has been achieved.

This luxurious, comprehensive package does not only boast a first-class design, it is also an enticingly engaging ride for the roads ahead.

Superior 6-cylinder engine.

A first-class engine: the legendary straight-six engine offers an unparalleled smooth ride and the most outstanding riding performance in the luxury tour sector. Its 118 kW (160 PS) output and maximum torque of 175 Nm at 5250 rpm supplies the perfect dynamic thrust forward. And 70% of the torque is already achieved at 1500 rpm.

A new dimension.

The standard equipped Dynamic ESA adds a new dimension to your riding experience. Within milliseconds, the highly-sensitive sensor box detects riding conditions and regulates the damper in the suspension. This guarantees the ideal damper settings in any riding situation. Even at an incline, levels of damping comfort that were previously unimaginable have now been achieved, resulting in an extremely steady ride.

Just climb on and relax.

The K 1600 GTL also offers unprecedented comfort. Its enticing features include an enormous amount of space and excellent accessibility. Carefully thought-out and easily accessible storage space solutions focus on the comfort of the rider, making the K 1600 GTL an uncompromising choice in touring quality. Riding with a partner on a long journey is a true pleasure thanks to a variety of detailed solutions such as central locking, seat heating, an electrically adjustable windscreen and a range of seat heights.

Various riding modes and dynamic traction control ensure increased comfort. Added to this is the Multi Controller: an essential operating concept which allows riders to navigate through the on-board menu conveniently, without removing their hands from the handlebars or their eyes from the road. Nothing can stop you on your relaxed ride on the K 1600 GTL toward new horizons. The bike with never-ending features – a series of luxurious equipment.
