Travel in big style. That means combining dynamic performance and comfort – and transforming distance into free space. BMW Motorrad’s vision was the essence of this philosophy – the pure sense of Gran Turismo. This vision has now taken shape in the K 1600 GT.
The in-line 6-cylinder engines by BMW are legendary. A myth which has been realised once more in the K 1600 GT – but now more compactly than ever before. 1649 cc, 118 kW (160 bhp) and a maximum torque of 175 Nm. Even the facts are impressive. But the riding experience is even more inspiring. The transversely installed power units delivers an extraordinary level of dynamic performance as well as refined 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, and it is in its element over high-speed stretches. Over 70% of the maximum torque is available from just 1500 rpm.
While the bike’s power reserves are huge, its dimensions are reduced. Weighing just under 103 kg and with a width of 555 mm – never was a large-volume in-line 6-cylinder so compact. For outstanding handling and increased banking freedom.
