The 2011 BMW K1600GT is priced at CN$24,100 while the more upscale K1600GTL gets a retail price of CN$27,225. At the moment, Canada is the first market to receive pricing for the two new K bikes.
Both versions are powered by a 1649cc inline six powerplant that claims 160hp at 7750rpm and 130 ft-lb. at 5250rpm. ABS brakes, heated grips, cruise control, Xenon headlight and 5.7-inch TFT color monitor are also standard on both versions. The K1600GTL adds a lower single-section seat with revised footrests and handlebar placement, wider windshield, audio system with Bluetooth, GPS and satellite radio, chrome features, matching frame and engine color and a top case.
American pricing is expected shortly, but with the Canadian dollar currently near par, BMW Canada’s pricing provides a good idea on how much the K1600GT and K1600GTL will cost in the U.S. BMW Motorrad USA is currently offering a presale program for theK1600GT and K1600GTL until March 2011.
