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 make it look even more elegant. Enhancing details like the footrests 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 line management has been achieved. The three premium paint finishes add character that’s exclusive to your bike. 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.

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 (118 kW) output and maximum torque of 129 lb-ft at 5,250 rpm supplies the perfect dynamic thrust forward. This machine is also capable of achieving 70% of torque at 1,500 rpm. 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 provides the ideal damper settings under various riding conditions. Even when leaning into turns, levels of damping comfort that were previously unimaginable have now been achieved, resulting in an extremely steady ride. The K 1600 GTL now comes standard with a total of three riding modes and Dynamic Traction Control (DTC). Switch between the Rain, Road and Dynamic riding modes at the simple touch of a button. Select Dynamic mode, for example, for fast and active riding performance. An obstacle that suddenly appears can cause any rider to brake on reflex. The standard ABS Pro guarantees safe braking even when cornering, and helps riders to maintain control of the motorcycle in unexpected situations. 


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. 


Refined luxury.

More luxury, more safety, more comfort, more elegance. Thanks to the comprehensive selection of optional equipment and accessories, there are multiple ways to configure your ideal ride. With standard features like Reverse Assist, it’s easier to maneuver and park in reverse, even on inclines. High-quality chrome components feature unmistakable luxury. The high power sports silencer from Akrapovič provides a refined experience for this performance touring motorcycle, even for sport riding. The adaptive headlight and optional ECALL system ("intelligent emergency call") increases the security of this BMW bike and is a world first in motorcycle engineering. Optional Hill Start Control adds even more security, making your next ride into the mountains an effortless success. The optional keyless ride feature and central locking at a touch of a button add to the GTL’s appeal. The Shift Assist Pro option offers even more enjoyable and dynamic up- and downshifting, as it eliminates the need to pull in the clutch lever. Luggage solutions like the standard topcase and touring cases provide you with ample storage room, so you don't have to leave anything behind on your big tour. Just climb on, relax and enjoy the ride: that's luxury travel with the K 1600 GTL.
