New BMW K 1600 GT

The BMW K 1600 GT is more than just a capable Gran Turismo bike. The name also stands for power, comfort and excitement for all fortunate enough to own the model.


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 now taken shape in the K 1600 GT with the design matching this.


Leading the charge is a six-cylinder water-cooled petrol engine that produces 158bhp and 175Nm of torque. With the help of a six-speed gearbox all this power and torque means a top speed of over 125mph and excellent throttle response to help you get there. Duolever front forks and Paralever rear suspension absorb the bumps for a more relaxing ride, and you can adjust the rear damping to suit changing conditions. There's also a choice of three power modes in Road, Rain and Dynamic which alter the performance set-up for each individual journey.

Safety and Technology

The bike's advanced technology contributes to much more than simply a thrilling experience when on the road, as it also helps you to remain safe. An Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) keeps you in command when slowing and stopping, with tyre pressure control warning when the wheels have dangerously low levels of air. There's also a pioneering adaptive headlight fitted at no extra cost which automatically turns the lamp to compensate for the bike's banking angle, illuminating more of the road.


The BMW K 1600 GT is designed for the touring enthusiast who wants head turning looks to match dynamic performance, and you can sample the ride with the help of Williams Motorcycles. Contact our expert team in Manchester to arrange test ride and for more information on the model.
