2013 BMW K 1600 GT

Gran Turismo. 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 taken shape in the K 1600 GT.

The in-line 6-cylinder engines by BMW are legendary. Now more compact than ever before, 1649 cc, 118 kW (160 bhp) and a maximum torque of 175 Nm. The facts are impressive. But the riding experience is even more inspiring. The transversely installed engine delivers an extraordinary level of dynamic performance as well as refined running smoothness.

If the rider is in the mood for sport, 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. Never was a large-volume in-line 6-cylinder so compact, offering outstanding handling and increased banking freedom. And a whole new touring bike feel.
