2016 BMW K1600GTL Exclusive Review

2016 BMW K1600GTL Exclusive on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

Touring all inclusive: the K 1600 GTL Exclusive…

When dynamic performance meets luxury, the result is always exclusive and sensational. BMW Motorrad presents the K 1600 GTL Exclusive – a high-class touring bike that takes technology and visual styling to the extreme. This GTL makes all 6-cylinder dreams come true.

The design: a perfectly crafted masterpiece.

“Exclusive” at first sight: three layers of paint give the outer skin of the GTL Exclusive a level of quality and depth which is unparalleled. Mineral white metallic is seamlessly blended with gentle Magnesium metallic matte and supplemented with numerous surfaces finished in chrome, seats and upholstery in Magnesium silver and a wealth of other details – the GTL Exclusive radiates luxury and dynamic performance from every angle.

The technology: only the best.

The GTL Exclusive also features the silken-soft yet powerful in-line 6-cylinder. Its exclusivity lies in the detail: Hill Start Control for moving off effortlessly on slopes, Keyless Ride automatically releases the steering lock, ignition, fuel tank lid and alarm system as soon as the key is within two meters of the motorcycle. The radio foil aerial antenna is integrated invisibly in the body and the Adaptive headlight with xenon technology enhances visibility and safety.

The equipment: uncompromising.

The equipment options assembled for the GTL Exclusive are those most frequently in demand among motorcyclists. Central locking with alarm system and a heatable seat with backrest come as standard. ESA II, DTC, RDC, LED auxiliary lights, adaptive xenon headlight, a second brake light and ground lighting are included for travel comfort. ABS Pro, BMW’s cornering-optimized ABS, is now included as part of the standard profile. The functions of the BMW on-board computer Pro have been optimized and an engine guard is incorporated as standard.





2016 BMW K1600GTL Exclusive www.Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features

The BMW K 1600 GTL Exclusive takes two-wheeled travel to a whole new level thanks to a 118 kW (160 hp) in-line six-cylinder engine that melds superlative power with exemplary refinement, as well as boasting superb standards of equipment and comfort.

Spearheading the BMW Motorrad tourer range, the “Exclusive” model already lays claim to a class-beating specification as standard, including central locking with anti-theft alarm system and ESA II electronic suspension adjustment for an optimum spring/damper setup regardless of load. The Dynamic Traction Control (DTC) boosts safety when accelerating, while the innovative new Hill Start Control feature takes all the hard work out of pulling away uphill, even when carrying a passenger and luggage. Needless to say, the K 1600 GTL Exclusive also comes equipped with BMW Motorrad ABS as standard, like all BMW motorcycles.

The film antenna for the radio that is embedded in the topcase lid is a world first and ensures the best possible reception quality while also enhancing the bike’s appearance. Long-distance travel comfort for the pillion passenger is taken to greater heights by a new seat, the heated backrest and comfortable armrests. Also to be found on the list of standard equipment are LED auxiliary headlights, adaptive xenon headlight, Tyre Pressure Monitor, additional brake light, engine protection bar, floor lighting, as well as LED daytime running light and, for the first time on a BMW motorcycle, Keyless Ride.

The styling of the “Exclusive” model likewise spells pure luxury – from the fuel tank’s aluminium moulding through the fully chromed exhaust system to the new-look instrumentation.

The colour scheme for the new K 1600 GTL Exclusive adds to the sense of elegance and aesthetic appeal. The bodywork’s four-coat paint finish in Mineral white metallic high gloss combines to striking effect with the classy chrome surfaces, the contrasting shade of Magnesium metallic matt and the Glacier silver metallic radiator fins. The colour-coordinated upholstery for the seat cushions, backrest and pillion passenger armrests adds the perfect finishing touch.
