Dynamic ESA: unevenness ironed flat.

For the best road contact.

The standard Dynamic ESA significantly increases the first-class riding comfort of the K 1600 Grand America. It ensures the best traction, safety and the highest level of comfort. Dynamic ESA controls the suspension depending on the driving condition and riding maneuvers by automatically adjusting to the detected conditions. In doing so, it ensures significantly improved contact between road and tire, even when in a lean. Enabling riding characteristics which are always stable and an added boost in comfort and safety – especially on those long tours.

Reverse Assist: effortlessly maneuvering and getting out of parking spaces.

Simply reverse.

Steep paths and narrow space conditions at popular look-out points or parking spots are no issue with the convenient Reverse Assist. Activate the Reverse Assist by putting the bike into neutral and engaging the function using the button on the left handlebar. As soon as the R is shown on the display and started by pressing it, you can glide out of your parking space with ease and get going to your next destination with ample momentum.
