INTERMOT 2010: BMW K1600GT / GTL Unveiled
Six-cylinder tourers debut in Cologne
The K1600GT and GTL are based around a new inline six engine with a claimed power output of 160hp and 129 ft-lb. of torque. According to BMW, the engine’s 226 pound weight makes it the lightest serially produced inline six engine over 1000cc. That helps the K1600GT claim a weight of 703 pounds (without panniers) while the K1600GTL comes in at a heftier 767 pounds (with panniers and topcase).
BMW equipped the K1600 models with its E-Gas three-mode ride-by-wire system, offering “Rain”, “Road” and “Dynamic” settings. Both models are also available with dynamic traction control and electronic suspension adjustment.
