K 1600 GT

Gran Turismo. Big-style travel. This means combining dynamic performance with style and comfort - thereby transforming distance into free space. The BMW Motorrad vision was the essence of this philosophy - the pure sense of Gran Turismo. This vision has now taken concrete shape in the new K 1600 GT.

BMW in-line 6-cylinder engines are legendary. A myth now made reality for the K 1600 GT - more compact than ever before. 1649 cc, 118 kW (160 bhp) and a maximum torque of 175 Nm. The figures themselves are impressive. But the riding experience is even more so. The transversely mounted power unit delivers outstanding dynamic performance as well superb running smoothness.

If the rider is in the mood for a show of sporty prowess, the engine willingly puts in a burst of speed even in the lower engine speed range; over high-speed stretches it is truly in its element. Over 70% of the maximum torque is available from just 1500 rpm.

Its performance is superb - but its dimensions are reduced. It weighs in at just under 103 kg and measures 555 mm in width: never before has a large-volume 6-cylinder engine been so compact. For excellent handling and even greater banking freedom.

The right extras: the Keyless Ride system provides greater convenience. This system means a mechanical key is no longer needed and you have your hands free in every situation. The traction assistant for hill climbs makes every slope a breeze.

For even better visibility on bends, the GT presents the optionally available adaptive turning light. It increases not only the machine's exclusive appeal but also its active safety. Vision fulfilled.
