Description

TRAVELLING TOGETHER

There is a German proverb along the lines of “anyone who travels with ambitions never travels alone.” This is especially true when you are travelling with someone else. The BMW K 1600 GTL represents both these elements. It offers performance touring that leaves no wishes unfulfilled. Its powerful six-cylinder engine now delivers even more dynamism and superior character: thanks to the comfortably designed vehicle geometry, you can enjoy every kilometre. The cockpit has also been redesigned. it has been entirely geared towards interaction with you so you can enjoy every tour even more consciously and intensively. Because travelling together starts here – truly in the spirit of #RideAndShare.

HIGHTSLIGHTS OF THE K 1600 GTL

Sometimes it’s the small things that make a trip unforgettable. That’s why the K 1600 GTL is exclusive down to the last detail: be it the armrest for your companion, the sophisticated liners for cases and topcase or the numerous chrome parts that make your bike look perfect. You yourself can rely on the best light conditions you could have hoped for thanks to the full LED headlight with adaptive headlight. Turn night into day – and enjoy riding around the clock in ideal light conditions: for exclusive comfort and greater safety.

Colours are only light – but a very special kind of light

Whichever colour you choose: the K 1600 GTL emphasises its prestige claim. After all, the fact you are travelling at the top end of the spectrum should not just become evident from comfort and performance.

Exclusive – exclusively for you

At the end of the day, staying true to yourself and your approach is the most important thing – even when you’re travelling. Turn the K 1600 GTL into your very own bike with our optional equipment and Original BMW Motorrad Accessories. The comfort package already provides you with additional LED headlights and engine protection bars as well as Keyless Ride, central locking system and anti-theft alarm. The package is rounded off by shift assistant Pro, enabling gearshifts without having to actuate the clutch.

The name says it all

The K 1600 GTL is as complete and accomplished as you could picture it in your wildest dreams. However, just like it is possible to add a few kilometres to every trip, we can always add more to the bike. We have put together two bikes for you to inspire you: the “endurance runner” and the “exclusive” variants. Be inspired and discover even more comfort and personal highlights.


Athletic, dynamic and superior, the K 1600 GTL represents exclusive and comfortable travelling. However, our design standards go even further: being connected to each other, reading maps, reaching your destination as a team along the most beautiful routes. The 10.25" TFT colour display of the K 1600 GTL is the perfect companion for this purpose. Its full-screen mode offers a fully interactive map view for navigation with the BMW Motorrad Connected app: for cockpit navigation like you have never experienced it before. In split screen mode, on the other hand, you can rely on several functions at the same time, and you are able to control them in a straight-forward way using the multi-controller.

LEDENDARY SIX-CYLINDER IN-LINE ENGINE

How do legends come about and how do they travel around the world? With the K 1600 GTL’s six-cylinder engine, the answer is clear: by travelling. Its superior character and performance are legendary, yet tangible. And thanks to the revised engine control unit, output and torque are now even more powerful. The motorcycle already develops the 160 hp rated output 1,000 rpm earlier, at 6,750 rpm. Engine drag torque control (dynamic engine brake control) and Dynamic ESA ensure stability plus safety and are perfectly adapted to the now even more emotionally designed riding modes: for even more focussed performance touring.
