2013 BMW K1600GTL Review

2013 BMW K1600GTL

When luxury is freed of constraint, it moves to a new level. At the very top of this evolution is the K 1600 GTL – a high-class touring bike like none before it. With the most compact and efficient in-line 6-cylinder engine ever installed in a series production motorcycle.

The ergonomics of the K 1600 GTL are designed for long trips and leave nothing to be desired for rider or passenger in terms of comfort. The slim design in the area of the rider's seat and the fact that the handlebars reach far back allows a relaxed seating position - for hours and over hundreds of miles. The passenger enjoys a sizable seating area and a comfortable backrest.

Available for the first time in a motorcycle: the adaptive headlight (special equipment feature) - a revolution which matches the visionary front section of the K 1600 GTL and provides the very highest level of active safety.

The GTL makes luxury easy. This is because its unique chassis provides excellent handling. With a direct ride feel due to the ground-breaking Duolever front suspension. At the rear, it is the Paralever that put's the power of the engine onto the road, The optional ESA II (Electronic Suspension Adjustment) ensures that the GTL always glides smoothly since the systems allows the damping and suspension to be adapted according to situation and preference at the press of a button.

Every detail is designed for maximum riding pleasure. A motorcycle for people who are looking for a new kind of supremacy.
The K 1600 GTL. UNSTOPPABLE TOUR.

The BMW K 1600 GTL brings a new dimension to luxury touring – blending smooth power from the brand new six-cylinder engine with class-leading comfort the GTL is luxury. Rider and pillion passenger benefit from a relaxed, upright seating position, excellent wind protection and plenty of room for both riders and luggage, which makes long distances more enjoyable than ever. The ergonomic design is geared towards maximum comfort and features a single-section, dual-level seat unit, rider footrests which are further forward and lower, and handlebars which reach further back towards the rider. The standard top box featuring an integrated back rest rounds off the range of comfort features for the pillion passenger. The K 1600 GTL sets a new benchmark in luxury motorcycle touring.
