It's is essentially the same bike as the K1600GT but with a few minor mods to make it more suitable to relaxed longer distance touring, especially two up.
There's a 49 litre top box with more padding for the pillion, larger 26.5 litre tank, lower 750mm 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 29kg heavier. The 17" wheels take a 120/70 tyre at the front and 190/55 at the rear.
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, 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.
As standard you 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 on to the road where it's most needed, such as tracking the corner ahead of you, even when banking; the banking information is also used by the ABS and optional traction control systems.
Accessories include banking-aware traction control, 3-mode dynamic electronic suspension (ESA II, £750), 780mm / 810mm high seats, heated grips, heated seat, side-mounted additional LED headlights, see me home ground lights plus central locking, computer, TPMS, engine bars, cruise control and Akrapovic silencers.
Colours: Dark blue, silver
2014: £17,300 K1600GTL Exclusive with four coats of paint, adaptive headlight, engine bars and ESA II.
