Experience the sound of the K 1600 GTL

K 1600 GTL highlights

A new dimension.

A new dimension.

The standard equipped Dynamic ESA adds a new dimension to your riding experience. Within milliseconds, the highly-sensitive sensor box detects riding conditions and regulates the damper in the suspension. This guarantees the ideal damper settings in any riding situation. Even at an incline, levels of damping comfort that were previously unimaginable have now been achieved, resulting in an extremely steady ride.

Just climb on and relax.

Just climb on and relax.

The K 1600 GTL also offers unprecedented comfort. Its enticing features include an enormous amount of space and excellent accessibility. Carefully thought-out and easily accessible storage space solutions focus on the comfort of the rider, making the K 1600 GTL an uncompromising choice in touring quality. Riding with a partner on a long journey is a true pleasure thanks to a variety of detailed solutions such as central locking, seat heating, an electrically adjustable windscreen and a range of seat heights.

Various riding modes and dynamic traction control ensure increased comfort. Added to this is the Multi Controller: an essential operating concept which allows riders to navigate through the on-board menu conveniently, without removing their hands from the handlebars or their eyes from the road. Nothing can stop you on your relaxed ride on the K 1600 GTL toward new horizons. The bike with never-ending features – a series of luxurious equipment.

Highlights in detail.
  • For the best road contact.
    The standard Dynamic ESA once again significantly increases the first-class riding comfort of the K 1600 GTL. 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.

    The standard setting "Road" – takes you comfortably over all unevenness. With the "dynamic" setting, a generally firmer damping action is selected: for sporty dynamic riding.

  • 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.
  • More light. More safety.
    The standard xenon headlights are double as bright and consume 30% less power than conventional halogen headlamps. They ensure consistent illumination of the road surface - particularly at night and with poor visibility. At the same time, they make you easier to be seen as well. A cylindrical bulb shield on the reflector prevents the light bulb from dazzling other road users.

    The light follows the wheel. Adaptive Headlight.
    The adaptive headlight, which is available as an optional accessory, optimally illuminates the road when negotiating bends. A servo motor in the main headlight compensates for the motorcycle's banking angle when cornering, orienting the light at the optimum angle for the road. For the rider, this represents an enormous increase in active driving safety, particularly when taking corners at night.

  • Mount and enjoy in a relaxed manner.
    Whether you are touring or simply going for your daily ride, the installed cases and storage compartments on the K 1600 GTL provide sufficient space for everything you need to store. From the day-to-day essentials, equipment and clothing, and even holiday mementos.

    The optional topcase impresses with its convenient interior and the interior lighting fitted as standard. Your passenger will love the small comfortable backrest. The standard colours of the motorcycle are perfectly integrated into the elegant appearance of the K 1600 GTL. The optional storage compartment for the topcase lid provides space for all travel essentials, documents and paperwork.

    The liners give you even more space and order for your touring case. With the carry handle and the – also removable – shoulder strap, it is the ideal companion for a cruise through town.

  • Extraordinary features for increased comfort.
    Keyless ride and central locking make your life easier and quickly become companions you won't want to do without.

    Thanks to Keyless Ride, the mechanical key becomes superfluous so you no longer have to spend time inconveniently looking for it before you set off. It is sufficient simply to carry your key in your jacket pocket in order to unlock and start up your motorcycle.

    The central locking ensures that the contents of the storage compartments and additional cases are protected from thieving fingers when you lock your bike – all this simply by pressing a button on the handlebars. Enabling you to set out on an excursion after dismounting even faster.
  • Shift like in racing.
    This is luxury – above all a plus for easy handling: the shift assistant Pro was originally developed for racing sport. Adapted for the touring sector, it allows you to shift gears without using the clutch in almost any load or rev range. During acceleration, the throttle grip remains open and ensures swift and relaxed shifting. When downshifting with closed throttle grip, the system automatically provides double-declutching and uses this to downshift perfectly.

    This ensures that your clutch hand is relieved and remains relaxed even after long tours. In addition, shift time is reduced as compared to a gearshift using the clutch: for even more dynamics and comfort.
