New BMW K 1600 GT

Get set for your travels in style with the new BMW K 1600 GT. A Gran Turismo motorcycle through and through, the K 1600 GT combines dynamic performance with superior comfort.

With a strong and striking presence on the road, the K 1600 GT is powerful, commanding and agile, and with its cast aluminium wheels, it is sleek and lightweight, too. The engine weighs in at just 103kg with a width of 555mm, so this is an agile and compact bike. The reduced width gives you additional banking freedom for outstanding handling, while the lower weight means more responsive acceleration and improved efficiency.

However, lightweight components do not mean there's been a compromise in strength: the bridge-type cast aluminium frame is sturdy and the load-bearing engine is ready to take your luggage. Available in Light White, Sakhir Orange Metallic or Black Storm Metallic, the K 1600 GT can be personalised to your taste.

The K 1600 GT benefits from a particularly slimline seat construction. The ergonomic location of footrests, seat top and handlebars creates a proactive seating position which also retains long-distance comfort. Both rider and pillion passenger enjoy a more relaxed knee angle, while the seat height is adjustable for increased comfort. Removable panniers make an excellent flexible addition to the K 1600 GT, and fit seamlessly into the design language of the bike when installed.

The K 1600 GT boasts a dual oil and water-cooled four-stroke six-cylinder engine, which produces a heart-pumping 160hp and an eye-watering maximum torque of 175Nm. This enables it to reach a top speed of well over 124mph, with torque available throughout the rev range. Featuring a hydraulically operated oil-lubricated clutch, gear changes are smooth and effortless. The gearbox is a constant mesh six-speed unit with helical gear teeth, which engage firmly and smoothly. In addition, the optional Shift Assistant Pro allows the rider to shift gear without using the clutch or throttle valve, while the "Dynamic" mode add-on can be selected to guarantee a fun, sporty ride.

The BMW K 1600 GT features ABS as standard on all models for improved safety when braking. BMW's ASC system is also available as an option for even more enhanced safety when braking or accelerating.
