Spearheading the BMW Motorrad tourer range, the “Exclusive” model already lays claim to a class-beating specification as standard, including central locking with anti-theft alarm system and ESA II electronic suspension adjustment for an optimum spring/damper setup regardless of load. 

The Dynamic Traction Control (DTC) boosts safety when accelerating, while the innovative new Hill Start Control feature takes all the hard work out of pulling away uphill, even when carrying a passenger and luggage. Needless to say, the K 1600 GTL Exclusive also comes equipped with BMW Motorrad ABS as standard, like all BMW motorcycles. The film antenna for the radio that is embedded in the topcase lid is a world first. Long-distance travel comfort for the pillion passenger is taken to greater heights by a new seat, the heated backrest and comfortable armrests. 

Also to be found on the list of standard equipment are LED auxiliary headlights, adaptive xenon headlight, Tyre Pressure Monitor, additional brake light, engine protection bar, floor lighting, as well as LED daytime running light and, for the first time on a BMW motorcycle, Keyless Ride. The bodyworkĘs four-coat paint finish should deliver a top class outcome. 

The in-line six-cylinder engine delivers 160 hp/ 7,750 rpm and maximum torque of 175 Nm (129 lb-ft) /5,250 rpm where over 70 per cent of maximum torque on tap from just 1,500 rpm. There are three selectable riding modes (“Rain”, “Road”, “Dynamic”). Duolever and paralever suspension are featured plus ideal concentration of mass for dynamic handling abilities combined with the best possible comfort.
