BMW K1600 GTL 2022

According To BMW Motorrad

There is a German proverb along the lines of “anyone who travels with ambitions never travels alone.” This is especially true when you are travelling with someone else. The BMW K 1600 GTL represents both these elements. It offers performance touring that leaves no wishes unfulfilled. Its powerful six-cylinder engine now delivers even more dynamism and superior character: thanks to the comfortably designed vehicle geometry, you can enjoy every kilometre. The cockpit has also been redesigned. it has been entirely geared towards interaction with you so you can enjoy every tour even more consciously and intensively. Because travelling together starts here – truly in the spirit of #RideAndShare.

Sometimes it’s the small things that make a trip unforgettable. That’s why the K 1600 GTL is exclusive down to the last detail: be it the armrest for your companion, the sophisticated liners for cases and topcase or the numerous chrome parts that make your bike look perfect. You yourself can rely on the best light conditions you could have hoped for thanks to the full LED headlight with adaptive headlight. Turn night into day – and enjoy riding around the clock in ideal light conditions: for exclusive comfort and greater safety.

Travelling means discovering worlds – including worlds of colour: with its elegantly looking Black and Monolith metallic, Style Exclusive in Gravity blue metallic is downright calming and unleashes pure dynamics on demand – outstandingly accompanied by chrome add-on parts.

Exclusive – exclusively for you

At the end of the day, staying true to yourself and your approach is the most important thing – even when you’re travelling.

The K 1600 GTL is as complete and accomplished as you could picture it in your wildest dreams. However, just like it is possible to add a few kilometres to every trip, we can always add more to the bike. We have put together two bikes for you to inspire you: the “endurance runner” and the “exclusive” variants. Be inspired and discover even more comfort and personal highlights.

Athletic, dynamic and superior, the K 1600 GTL represents exclusive and comfortable travelling. However, our design standards go even further: being connected to each other, reading maps, reaching your destination as a team along the most beautiful routes. The 10.25″ TFT colour display of the K 1600 GTL is the perfect companion for this purpose. Its full-screen mode offers a fully interactive map view for navigation with the BMW Motorrad Connected app: for cockpit navigation like you have never experienced it before. In split screen mode, on the other hand, you can rely on several functions at the same time, and you are able to control them in a straight-forward way using the multi-controller.
