BMW K1600 Grand America For Sale
The 2018 BMW K1600 Grand America is a premium touring bike with all the toys and is powered by a 1,649cc inline six engine which puts out 158bhp. The 2017 K1600B is basically the same bike but without the top box.
What Is It?

It's essentially the K1600 Bagger with a top box, footboards as standard, Chrome engine bars under them, tall screen and reverse gear but it weighs 28kg more. Top speed is electronically limited to 100mph in order to maintain stability even with increased load at the rear of the bike.
The electrically adjusted suspension has Road mode which automatically adjusts itself and Cruise mode which offers gentle damping for comfort at low speeds. The standard (optional on the K1600B) reverse assist gives you a reverse gear for easy manoeuvring which is powered by the starter motor, operated from the left bar and the screen is electrically adjustable with memory. The 17" 11-spoke forged Aluminium wheels take a 120/70 tyre at the front and 190/55 at the rear.
Accessories include a quickshifter, pillion footboards/armrests, intelligent emergency call, audio connection in the right case, navigation system, centre stand, keyless start, hill start control, low/high seats, LED fog lights, tyre pressure monitoring, cornering headlight and forged handlebars.
