The 6-cylinder in-line engines They have been part of the history of BMW and the identity of the brand for more than 80 years. With the launch of the K 1600 GT and GTL in 2010, BMW Motorrad not only successfully transferred this tradition to the motorcycle field but also positioned the lighter, more compact 6-cylinder in-line engine on the market with a displacement of more than 1,000 cc, for motorcycles.
The smooth running and high performance were combined, with a power of 160 hp and a torque of 175 Nm, exclusive comfort, protection against the wind and practically perfect weather and dynamism without equal in the segment. With the new K 1600 GT, BMW Motorrad takes the concept of a motorcycle for travel even further with a powerful 6-cylinder engine, and presents it in an even more sophisticated, dynamic and comfortable way, with no changes in performance but now designed to meet the EU exhaust gas standard.
Dynamic ESA (Electronic Suspension Adjustment) with automatic adaptation of the series damping. While the previous model has already set the standard in the touring segment in terms of driving stability, dynamism and handling, the new K 1600 GT goes one step further. With the Dynamic ESA (Electronic Suspension Adjustment) system and its “Road” and “Dynamic” modes, the active driving experience and comfort have been greatly improved compared to the previous model.
In the standard mode "Road”, The suspension adaptation has been fully automated and offers the highest level of comfort and traction on almost any surface. This guarantees an optimum damping force in any situation regardless of the load. Depending on customer preferences, the spring preload can be adapted to the load with the press of a button and regardless of the damping.
Also with the push of a button located comfortably on the handlebar, so it can be used even while running, the pilot can switch to “Dynamic”, Which provides firmer cushioning.
