As unique as your tour

The colour must have an appeal – the idea must be just right

K 1600 GT riders have one thing in common: dynamics and travelling at the highest level. However, when it comes to choosing a colour, the similarities stop: the next corner is always the most beautiful. Just like your own bike.

Option 719 Havanna

Paintwork in Meteoric dust II metallic, black Option 719 forged wheels, and the Option 719 seat emphasise this performance touring bike's unstoppable forward thrust.


How much dynamics can luxury travel take? Style Sport impressively demonstrates this with a triad consisting of Light white/Racing blue metallic/Racing red body colour and highlights including the golden brake calliper at the front and the contrasting paintwork in Light white on the front-wheel cover.

Black storm metallic

How much colour do comfort, dynamics and luxury need? The K 1600 GT in Black storm metallic has a straight-forward answer to this question: from the frame, to the seat and the slipstream deflectors.

Always a little more

Always a little more

Thanks to extensive optional equipment and original BMW Motorrad accessories, you can tailor your bike even more towards yourself and your trips. We also offer the comfort package and tour package ex works: for instance, the comfort package offers shift assistant Pro, which allows you to shift gears without having to operate the clutch. Thanks to audio system 2.0 and the LED additional headlight, the tour package offers both audible and visual highlights. And it goes without saying that the latter applies especially to the Option 719 seat and Option 719 forged wheels optional equipment.

Enthralling six-cylinder in-line engine

cc capacity
litres of storage space
Nm max. torque at 5,250 rpm
mm seat height
Oil/water-cooled, six-cylinder, four-stroke, in-line engine

Cruising or racing along landscapes? All it takes to decide that on the K 1600 GT is a small twist of the wrist. The revamped engine control unit of the legendary six-cylinder engine provides even more intensity in all areas. This means that you can now unleash the power and torque even more forcefully. The motorcycle now develops the 160 hp rated output 1,000 rpm earlier, at 6,750 rpm. Engine drag torque control (dynamic engine brake control) and Dynamic ESA ensure stability plus safety and are perfectly adapted to the now even more emotionally designed riding modes: for intensive performance touring.
