BMW’s Premium Touring Machine: The 2021 BMW K 1600 GTL​

Contents​


The K 1600 GTL is the top-of-the-line touring machine from BMW Motorrad, and one of the most exciting models in the 2021 BMW line-up. This European-made touring behemoth takes all of the best features of the K 1600 B and K 1600 Grand America, and combines them into one comprehensive, first-class motorcycle

The heart of the K 1600 GTL is a 1,649 cc six-cylinder engine. It’s a top-class engine that offers a smooth ride experience, 160 horsepower, 129 lb-ft of torque, and enough grunt to propel this heavyweight motorcycle to speeds in excess of 125 mph. That power is kept in check thanks to a bevy of premium riding aids such as Dynamic Traction Control, Cruise Control, ABS Pro, and Gear Shift Assist Pro technology.

As a first-class touring machine, the BMW K 1600 GTL is equipped with a wide range of practical features, such as hard-luggage with up to 31 gallons of storage space, a touring-friendly windshield, Dynamic Electronic Suspension Adjustment, Reverse Assist, and Hill Start Control. Other top features include a sophisticated Bluetooth-enabled audio system, a multi-function controller, heated seats, and a xenon headlight.

For 2021, the K 1600 GTL is available in three color options: Manhattan Metallic, Black Storm Metallic, and Mineral White Metallic.

The 2021 BMW K 1600 GTL starts at $26,995 USD / $32,900 CAD.
