Comfortable cruising with an abundance of space: with the Grand America, you'll never want the journey to end. The standard Dynamic ESA embodies the best possible handling and riding dynamics - the "DYNAMIC" mode allows you to glide even smoother. Rest your legs on the standard footboard – laid-back, typical “American way of ride". The pillion seat height was reduced by 7 cm for even more accessibility, especially when mounting and dismounting the bike –  and the foot pegs were also moved down. Furthermore, the standard engine protection bar and the audio system with navigation preparation are guaranteed to impress. The journey continues. Make yourself even more comfortable with the armrest accessory, available on request.

Highlights in detail.

Dynamic ESA: unevenness ironed flat.

For the best road contact.

The standard Dynamic ESA once again 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 manoeuvres by automatically adjusting to the detected conditions. In doing so, it ensures significantly improved contact between road and tyre, 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 assistant: effortlessly manoeuvring 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 torque control assist (TCA). Leaving you with only a smile for parking and manoeuvring. Activate the reverse assist by putting the bike into neutral and activating the assist 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 on to your next destination with ample momentum.
