What Is It?

The 2011 BMW K1600GT is a premium touring bike and is powered by a Euro 3 compliant incredibly compact liquid cooled 1,649 cc inline six engine, producing 160.5 bhp at 7,750 rpm and maximum torque at 5,250 rpm (70% from just 1,500 rpm).

Features include:

  • Aluminium frame, Magnesium fairing frame, shaft drive
  • Dual 320 mm discs up front with four piston calipers
  • 320 mm disc at the rear with two piston caliper
  • BMW cornering ABS system
  • Duolever front suspension with 115 mm travel
  • Adjustable rear shock with 135 mm travel
  • Ride modes: Road / Rain / Dynamic
  • 6->2 Stainless Steel exhaust system
  • LED taillight and indicators
  • 6 speed gearbox and light clutch

The super smooth 103 kg engine is angled forwards near the road for optimum weight distribution and a low centre of gravity.

For storage there are helmet swallowing colour coded panniers and a waterproof lockable glove box in the right fairing for piping in music from iPods etc. When the satnav is fitted a shield pops down when parked to keep it safe.

There is also a 5.7" colour TFT dash in the centre of the clocks, coupled to the multi controller on the left bar (like the R1200RT), which gives access to the wealth of options on the bike from the extensive multimedia capabilities to the electrically adjustable screen. The screen remembers the last position and even has an anti squash mechanism. Not that you'll need them in the UK but to direct more cooling air onto the rider there are two little fold out deflectors just above the side fairings.

You also get a Xenon main beam in the centre, flanked by Halogen high beams and circular position lights but the optional adaptive headlight is one of the many technological marvels of the K1600 series. It fires up at a mirror which then directs the beam onto the road where it's most needed, such as tracking the corner ahead of you, even when banking.

The seat can be set to 810 mm / 830 mm as standard or 780 mm / 800 mm with the optional low seat. The 17" wheels take a 120/70 tyre at the front and 190/55 at the rear.

Options include lean angle aware traction control, Electronic Suspension Adjustment II (ESA, £750) with Normal/Comfort/Sport modes, heated grips, heated seat, side-mounted LED lights, central locking, tyre pressure monitoring, comfort screen, 49 litre top box, engine bars, cruise control and Akrapovic silencers. The £15,800 K1600GT SE gets you the cool adaptive headlight and dynamic traction control.

Colours: Red, grey

The £1,500 more expensive K1600GTL is essentially the same bike but with a few minor mods to make it more suitable to relaxed longer distance touring, especially two up. It comes with a 49 litre top box, making the bike 16.5 cm longer, which also includes more luxurious padding for the pillion.

There's a larger 26.5 litre tank, lower 750 mm single piece seat, larger comfort screen and more relaxed rider position with the pegs further forwards and bars sweeping further back. You also get Chrome rather than Steel silencers, sat nav prep as standard with auxiliary audio connector and wider rider footrests, but it's 29 kg heavier.
