Superior 6-cylinder engine.

The legendary six-cylinder in-line, first class engine offers an unparalleled smooth ride and the most outstanding riding performance in the luxury tour sector. Its 160 hp output and 129 lb-ft of torque at 5,250 rpm supplies the perfect dynamic thrust. This machine is also capable of achieving 70% of torque at 1,500 rpm.

A new dimension.

The standard equipped Dynamic ESA adds a new dimension to your riding experience. Within milliseconds, the highly-sensitive module 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.

Have a seat 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 appealing features such as central locking, heated seats, an electrically adjustable windscreen and a range of seat heights. The multi-controller concept is essential, allowing riders to switch functions comfortably without removing their hands from the handlebars or their eyes from the road.
