K 1600 GT
THE BMW K 1600 GT.
ICONIC TOURING COMFORT
The 6-cylinder in-line engine in the BMW K 1600 GT is iconic due to its serious power delivery and renowned running smoothness. The K 1600 GT combines this isonic engine with long-distance weather durability and a range of advanced equipment that sets you up perfectly for your next tour.
Leave an impression no matter where your journey takes you, and experience a level of unprecedented touring comfort.
Dynamics for the eye as well.
Dynamics and comfort, these characteristics of the K 1600 GT are also reflected in the design: the Duolever front suspension, the xenon headlight with adaptive headlight, the powerful 6-cylinder engine and the frame make the high-quality overall image really stand out. The completely new front and side view are athletically and sharply depicted and 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.
Legendary: the six-cylinder in-line engine. With this, every ride is a pleasure. With its unmatched running smoothness and power delivery, it reliably ensures the desired dynamics. Its 118 kW (160 HP) and maximum torque of 175 Nm develop an incomparable and effortless push force. In doing so, 70% of the torque is already available at 1,500 rpm. Meaning the smallest movement of the hand gives the K 1600 GT a good dose of controllability on tours: response characteristics and handling from a thoroughbred.
Extensive standard equipment.
Technically at the highest level, the equipment fitted as standard on the K 1600 GT leaves nothing more to wish for: ABS Pro, which ensures safe braking even when leaning, the innovative xenon headlight and the multi-controller are just a few of the extras fitted. New to standard production: the dynamic ESA. The chassis recognises and controls the damping action and the angular rate sensor and control units in milliseconds. In doing so, it ensures the best damper settings in every driving situation. Even when leaning, a damping comfort which was not even imaginable until now is achieved and as a result a constantly stable riding behaviour is achieved.
Do you want some more?
The numerous optional accessories such as adaptive headlight, keyless ride or central locking ensure even more comfort, safety and in turn a relaxed ride at the touch of a button. Thanks to the torque control assist, manoeuvring and getting out of parking spaces is effortless even on steep terrain. The shift assistant pro ensures even more comfortable and dynamic shifting.

Reverse assistant: effortlessly manoeuvring and getting out of parking spaces.
Steep paths and narrow space conditions at popular look-out points or parking spots are no issue with the convenient torque control assist (TCA). Leaving you with only a smile for parking and manoeuvring. Activate the reverse assist by putting the bike into neutral and activating the assist function using the button on the left handlebar. As soon as the R is shown on the display and started by pressing it, you can glide out of your parking space with ease and get going on to your next destination with ample momentum.
Dynamic ESA: unevenness ironed flat.
For the best road contact.
The standard Dynamic ESA once again significantly increases the first-class riding comfort of the K 1600 GT. It ensures ideal traction, safety and the highest level of comfort: spring travel sensors at the front and back record in particular the vertical movement of the wheel alignment. Based on the data, the dynamic ESA regulates the damping action depending on the driving conditions and riding manoeuvres automatically to match the determined circumstances. In doing so, it ensures significantly improved contact between road and tyre, even when in a lean. Enabling riding characteristics which are always stable and an added boost in comfort and safety - especially on those long tours.
The standard setting "Road" - takes you comfortably over all unevenness. With the "dynamic" setting, a generally firmer damping action is selected: for sporty dynamic riding.
Xenon headlight: puts everything into the right light.
More light. More safety.
The standard xenon headlights are double as bright and consume 30% less power than conventional halogen headlamps. They ensure consistent illumination of the road surface - particularly at night and with poor visibility. At the same time, they make you easier to be seen as well. A cylindrical bulb shield on the reflector prevents the light bulb from dazzling other road users.
The light follows the wheel. Adaptive Headlight.
The adaptive headlight, which is available as an optional accessory, optimally illuminates the road when negotiating bends. A servo motor in the main headlight compensates for the motorcycle's banking angle when cornering, orienting the light at the optimum angle for the road. For the rider, this represents an enormous increase in active driving safety, particularly when taking corners at night.
Keyless ride and central locking.
Extraordinary features for increased comfort.
Keyless ride and central locking make your life easier and quickly become companions you won't want to do without.
The mechanical key will become superfluous and from now on you have your hands free - thanks to keyless ride. That awkward searching before the journey simply goes away and carrying your key in your jacket pocket is sufficient to unlock and start up your motorcycle.
The central locking ensures that the contents of the storage compartments and additional cases are protected from thieving fingers when you lock your bike - all this simply by pressing a button on the handlebars. Enabling you to set out on an excursion after dismounting even faster.
Clutchless shifting up and down thanks to pro shift assistant.
Shift like in racing.
Almost a luxury - but particularly an expression of the dynamics of the K 1600 GT: the shift assistant was originally developed for racing. The pro shift assistant, which was adapted for use in the touring sector, allows you to shift gears without using the clutch in almost any load or engine speed range. During acceleration, the throttle grip remains open and ensures swift and relaxed shifting. When downshifting with closed throttle grip, the system automatically provides double-declutching and uses this to downshift perfectly.
This ensures that your clutch hand is relieved and remains relaxed even after long tours. In addition, shift time is reduced as compared to a gearshift using the clutch: for even more dynamics and comfort.
