2012 BMW K 1600 GTTravel 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 new K 1600 GT.
The in-line 6-cylinder engines by BMW are legendary. A myth which has been realized once more in the K 1600 GT - but now more compactly than ever before. 1649 cc, 160 hp and a maximum torque of 129 ft-lb. 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.Gran Turismo.
This exceptional tourer makes light work of even the longest journeys, and everything about it, from the styling to the suspension, reflects its unique character. It is powered by the most compact in-line six-cylinder production motorcycle engine ever built, a 160-horsepower (118-kilowatt) unit that combines quick throttle responses with unrivalled refinement. With its innovative optional adaptive Headlight, the GT is an outstanding example of motorcycle design in every sense.
