Following the presentation of the Concept 6 in autumn 2009, BMW has developed the six-cylinder in-line engine concept with the K 1600 GT series, which will be soon introduced to compete in the premium touring segment.

The dynamic touring bike BMW K 1600 GT is characterised by an active seating position which nonetheless offers a high level of long-distance comfort. The reason for this is the favourable set-up of the ergonomics triangle made up of footrests, seat and handlebars.
The GTL version is focused on enhanced comfort and features a relaxed, upright seating position with a two-level seat and rider footrests which are positioned further forward and lower down, as well as handlebars which reach further back.
The Adaptive Headlight is a industry first and will be available as an optional.
Among the additional technical highlights are the E-Gas (ride-by-wire), Traction control DTC (Dynamic Traction Control) and Electronic Suspension Adjustment ESA II.
