Features

Features

  • DYNAMICS FOR THE EYE AS WELL: The dynamics and comfort characteristics of the K 1600 GT are also reflected in the design: The Duolever front suspension, the xenon headlight with optional Adaptive Headlights, the powerful 6-cylinder engine and the frame make this high quality motorcycle a true standout. The front and side views are athletic and sharp to ensure a sporty, streamlined appearance. The 6-in-2 muffler reflects the potential of the 6-cylinder engine both visually and acoustically. The remarkable appearance of the K 1600 GT is supported by the high-quality paint finish: from exclusively discreet to sportily dynamic. You decide what suits you.
  • FIRST-CLASS SIX-PACK: The legendary in-line six-cylinder engine turns every ride into pure enjoyment. Thanks to extremely smooth acceleration and power delivery, its dynamic performance is unmatched. 160 hp and 129 lb-ft of torque provide effortless thrust. The smallest movement of the throttle results in an immediate response while providing superior control and handling.
  • STRIKING XENON HEADLIGHTS: So you can see and be seen better.
  • 3 RIDING MODES: Come as standard.
  • INNOVATIVE, EASY TO READ COCKPIT: With two round instruments and a large 5.7 inch TFT display.
  • ELECTRICALLY ADJUSTABLE WINDSHEILD: Provides the highest level of wind protection and functionality.
  • A GREAT MANY VISUAL DETAILS: Details like the redesigned badge holder set exclusive accents.
  • SLIPSTREAM DEFLECTOR: Can be folded outwards if required and ensure temperatures resembling those at the height of summer for a clearly noticeable airstream.
  • SIX-CYLINDER IN-LINE ENGINE: With 226.2 lbs weight and 21.9 in width, it is particularly light and compact.
  • WATERTIGHT STORAGE COMPARTMENTS: Can be opened and closed with the optionally available central locking system.
  • EXTENSIVE STANDARD EQUIPMENT: The equipment that comes on the standard K 1600 GT model is of the highest quality, and encompasses a wide range of features to suit the needs of most riders: ABS Pro, which ensures safe braking even when leaning, the innovative xenon headlight and the multi-controller just to name a few, and the newest addition to standard production: the dynamic ESA. The chassis recognizes changes in road conditions and riding style and controls the damping action in milliseconds based on feedback from the lean-angle sensor and control units. In doing so, it ensures the best damper settings in various riding situations. Even when leaning into turns, superior damping comfort and stability is achieved.
