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.

Extensive standard equipment.

Standard high-performance brake system with Integral ABS Pro.

Extensive standard equipment.

State-of-the-art technology, the standard equipment of the K 1600 GT leaves nothing to be desired: ABS Pro, which ensures safe braking even on an incline, the innovative Xenon headlights, the Adaptive Headlight, the reverser and the multi-controller are just a few of the extras installed. 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, levels of damping comfort that were previously unimaginable have now been achieved, resulting in an extremely steady ride.

Reverser: Effortless manoeuvring and getting out of parking spaces.

Simply reverse.
Steep paths and narrow spaces at popular look-out points or parking spots are no longer an issue with the convenient reverser. The only thing left to do when parking and manoeuvring is smile. Activate the reverser by putting the bike into neutral and pressing 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 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 the best 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 automatically regulates the damping action depending on the driving conditions and riding manoeuvres 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 uneven surfaces. 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 more visible 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, perfectly illuminates the road when negotiating bends. A servomotor in the main headlight compensates for the motorcycle's banking angle when cornering, orienting the light at the optimum angle for the road. For you as a rider, this represents an enormous increase in active driving safety, particularly when taking corners at night.

Optional equipment Keyless Ride for a boost in comfort.

Do you want some more?

The numerous optional accessories such as Keyless Ride or the central locking system at the touch of a button ensure even more comfort, safety and, in turn, a relaxed ride. BMW Motorrad is the first motorcycle manufacturer to offer the "intelligent emergency call" as a factory-fitted option, an additional plus in terms of safety. The shift assistant Pro makes upshifting and downshifting even more convenient and dynamic.

"Intelligent emergency call": the quick response in case of an accident and in emergency situations thanks to the ECALL system from BMW Motorrad.

The good feeling is always along for the ride.
BMW Motorrad is the first manufacturer to provide the "intelligent emergency call" ex works: a system fitted firmly on the handlebar, which in case of emergency can independently and automatically trigger the rescue chain and in so doing facilitate faster aid from the emergency services.

The "intelligent emergency call" automatically becomes active following a light to heavy accident. But the rider can also manually trigger an emergency call at the push of a button, if for instance he/she has observed an accident. After activating the system, either automatically or manually, the GPS data of the location and the direction of travel of the motorcycle is sent via mobile phone connection to a BMW call centre. From here, the rescue chain is activated. For fast, precise help. And a great feeling on every tour.

Cases and storage compartments: more space for your luggage.

Mount and enjoy in a relaxed manner.
Whether you are touring or simply going for your daily ride, the installed cases and storage compartments on the K 1600 GT provide sufficient space for everything you need to store. From the day-to-day essentials, equipment and clothing, and even holiday mementos.

The optional topcase impresses with its convenient interior and the interior lighting fitted as standard. Your passenger will love the small comfortable backrest. In the standard colours of the motorcycle, it is perfectly integrated into the dynamic look of the K 1600 GT. The optional storage compartment for the topcase lid provides space for all travel essentials, documents and paperwork.

The liners give you even more space and order for your touring case. With the carry handle and the – also removable – shoulder strap, it is the ideal companion for a cruise through town.

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.
