After BMW revealed its Concept 6 study in 2009, has managed to attract a lot of interest for its new 6-cylinder in line engine. The same engine is now used by the new K 1600 GT and K 1600 GTL models which are offered for the first time with a 6-cylinder in-line power unit developed in-house.
The engine delivers a peak torque of 431-lb.-dry and 180 hp. These impressive power figures are combined with traction control and ABS which further increase performance.
The new 6-cylinder touring bikes also benefit from the innovative Electronic Suspension Adjustment II (ESA II), which is offered as standard equipment. Thanks to this capable system you can control with a touch of a button the motorcycle’s electronically adaptation to rebound damping of the front and rear spring strut as well as the spring rest of the rear spring strut.
