Convention is defied by the new K 1600 GTL, a first-class touring bike that takes two-wheel luxury to a new high. The ergonomic shape, efficient engine and revolutionary features make this a stand-out performer in the class, and it promises a unique thrill when out on the road.
A carefully considered layout makes the K 1600 GTL relaxing to ride, and helps you feel in complete control each time you venture out. Adding to your satisfaction is the intuitive control interface which merges with the cockpit and is controlled by touch alone via the uncomplicated multi-controller. Meanwhile, premium materials feature across the body in line with the bike's sophisticated character, including stainless steel and aluminium to make the model lightweight and therefore agile.
The responsive and nimble performance felt from the K 1600 GTL is a result of its six-cylinder four-stroke 158bhp petrol engine tuned to produce 175Nm of torque. Seventy percent of this maximum torque is available from only 1,500rpm, which alongside significant weight-savings means an abundance of acceleration when you twist the throttle and move up through the six-speed gearbox.
An advanced electronic management system enables you to adjust this output to suit individual preferences and the route ahead, ensuring maximum control no matter the conditions.
Peace of mind comes as standard with BMW's thrilling tour bike, as it's equipped with cutting-edge active technology to keep you safe. One highlight is the adaptive headlight, included for the first time on a motorcycle with the K 1600 GTL. The feature follows the curve of the road when turning in darkness, giving you a clearer view of what's ahead. On top of this the German manufacturer has included a partially integral Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) as standard for controlled stopping, plus the option for Dynamic Traction Control (DTC) and Tyre Pressure Control (TPC).
Wherever your travels take you, the K 1600 GTL will make every mile an effortlessly enjoyable experience. With Williams Motorcycles you can sample the bike's potential by booking a test ride with the help of our team - simply enquire with our Manchester centre for details.
