K 1600 GTL
Travelling in First Class.
The new BMW K 1600 GTL motorcycle is the pinnacle of high quality and sheer comfort, boasting the legendary straight-six engine. Now standard equipped with the latest generation of Dynamic ESA and ABS Pro. Stay calm and collected in any weather condition and at any distance. On your own or with a partner: enjoy superior control and effortless steering throughout your entire journey. Riding on the K 1600 GTL allows you to travel first class and experience all the style, power and luxury that you can handle.
The K 1600 GTL design has received a first-class upgrade. The newly designed side panels, radiator grilles, tank trim and storage compartment help you to stand out from the crowd. Enhancing details like the footrest 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.
Cases & Storage Compartments.
More space for your luggage. Whether you are touring or simply going for your daily ride, the installed cases and storage compartments on the K 1600 GTL provide sufficient space for everything you need to store. From the day-to-day essentials to equipment and clothing.
Keyless ride and central locking make your life easier and quickly become companions you won't want to do without. Thanks to Keyless Ride, the mechanical key becomes superfluous so you no longer have to spend time inconveniently looking for it before you set off. It is sufficient simply to carry your key in your jacket pocket in order 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 Thanks to Pro Shift Assistant.
This is luxury - above all a plus for easy handling: the shift assistant Pro was originally developed for sports racing. Adapted for the touring sector, it allows you to shift gears without using the clutch in almost any load or rev 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.
