About the BMW K 1600 GT

Powered by a Euro 3 compliant incredibly compact liquid cooled 1649.00cc in-line 6 cylinder engine, producing 160.5bhp,

The 103kg engine is angled forwards for optimum weight distribution and a low centre of gravity.

For storage includes colour coded panniers and a waterproof lockable glove box in the right fairing. When the satnav is fitted a cover pops down when parked to keep it secure.

There is a colour TFT dash in the centre of the dash, connected to the multi controller on the left bar, which gives access to the selection of options on the bike including the extensive multimedia capabilities.

Optional extras include banking-aware traction control, Electronic Suspension Adjustment II with 3 ride modes, adaptive headlight, heated grips, heated seat, side-mounted additional LED headlights, see me home lights with the optional central locking, computer, tyre pressure monitoring, higher screen, large top box, engine bars, cruise control and Akrapovic silencers.

There is also an optional adaptive headlight, which is one of the technological marvels of the K1600 series. It fires up at a mirror which then directs the beam onto the road where it is most needed.

The K1600GT SE version gets you the cool adaptive headlight and dynamic traction control.
