2024 BMW K1600GT: BURSTING WITH DYNAMICS, FULL OF IMPRESSIONS.

Introducing the 2024 BMW K1600GT…

Your trip is perfect if you have forgotten everything you left behind after the first corner. When you feel an irresistible drive, in response to the smallest command. In other words: When you have everything you need, but you still get more than before: more comfort, more performance. The legendary six-cylinder K 1600 GT now drives you forward with even more focus. In keeping with this, the new cockpit has been fully geared towards your needs. For an outstanding performance tour when you’re out and about. A fully fledged #RideAndShare.

The K 1600 GT is a synonym for pure performance touring. What’s more: without it, this category would probably not even exist. In terms of luxury and comfort, it is as uncompromising as you are.
