BMW K1600 Grand America 2022

According To BMW Motorrad

K 1600 Grand America you will always experience more. Its superior six-cylinder engine lets you casually cruise towards the horizon: perfectly equipped with footboards, topcase featuring backrest and high windscreen. As a result, it won’t be easy to say which was the most beautiful moment of the tour at the end of each day. Still, the stories about every kilometre will feel at least twice as good. Simply put: #RideAndShare

Plenty of room for your style

More comfort, more exclusive character, more fascination – the latter should particularly apply to anyone catching a glance of your K 1600 Grand America. What are you waiting for? Your journey starts right here.

Style Exclusive

Manhattan metallic matt paintwork makes an elegantly dynamic statement – right down to the last detail: from the front section of the front-wheel cover in body colour, the engine spoiler in Night black matt to the slipstream deflector trim in Black storm metallic.

Simply galactic

Every bike is unique: with the Option 719 Midnight in Meteoric II dust metallic with the galaxy motif, components are finished in the elaborate water transfer process. Precision and pure craftsmanship lead to unique results, in the truest sense of the word.
