The BMW K 1600 GT

Wanderlust on two wheels

This is what the world looks like from the saddle of the K 1600 GT: on the move, gaining impressions, experiencing new things while on a relaxed, yet dynamic and pleasing ride. Its 6-cylinder in-line engine is already considered an icon with its power delivery and running smoothness, and now it offers you even more dynamics and touring comfort. Thanks to wind and weather protection equipment, this bike is always ready for long distance touring when you are. When riding the K 1600 GT, you leave quite an impression regardless of whether you are at a standstill or on the move.

Dynamics for the eye as well.

The dynamics and comfort characteristics of the K 1600 GT are also reflected in the design: The Duolever front suspension, the xenon headlight with optional Adaptive Headlights, the powerful 6-cylinder engine and the frame make this high quality motorcycle a true standout. The front and side views are athletic and sharp to 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.
