New BMW K 1600 GT Sport

BMW K 1600 GT at Marshall BMW

At our Dealership in Grimsby


Our brand new, six-cylinder engine is perfectly complimented by the ergonomics of the K 1600 GT. Designed to be the ultimate European-style performance touring bike, the key 'triangle' between footrests, seat and handlebars on the GT give the rider full control of the bike and still provide a high level of long-distance comfort. Both rider and pillion passenger are provided with ample legroom – but the seating position is gently canted toward the front wheel for a dynamic riding experience.

A number of stylistic innovations have been achieved in the GT Sport. The instantly-recognisable Sakhir Orange/Black Storm metallic paint finishes make this model stand out from the crowd. BMW has also done a great job of hiding the bike's more practical aspects behind a streamlined, muscular body frame.

The rider’s seat is height-adjustable allowing it to be adapted to individual needs. And with an amazing range of options fitted as standard to add to this, including LED indicators, xenon headlight, heated grips, heated seats, colour coded panniers and more, the K 1600 'Gran Turismo' is the perfect blend of power, comfort and poise

The new RT has a new air/water-cooled BMW boxer engine with even more torque and 125 bhp for powerful propulsion. Thanks to the highly active electronically controlled suspension system ASC, the machine is still very easy to control and offers stability on every country road.

The standard Rain and Road Models can also be activated at the press of a button, adapting the motorcycle perfectly to the weather conditions and road surface as required. The On-board Computer Pro and the familiar heated grips round off the range of standard equipment.
