New Benchmarks for Grand Touring Motorcycles

 

The 2012 BMW K 1600 GT and K 1600 GTL have set a new benchmark for grand touring motorcycles by offering the world’s most advanced technology available on two wheels.  These innovations include:

 

  • The world’s lightest and most compact six-cylinder engine on a production motorcycle. At 226 lbs (including clutch, gearbox and alternator) and less than 22 inches wide, the six-cylinder engine in the K 1600 models is comparable in size to four-cylinder power plants.
  • The world’s first Xenon adaptive headlight on a motorcycle. Innovative electronics automatically compensate for the lean angle around corners and ensure the beam of the headlight is always directed at the road ahead.
  • The world’s most advanced audio and communications system on a motorcycle.
  • Bluetooth for wireless communication, Sirius satellite radio with a complimentary 12-month subscription, integration for iPod, USB stick and auxiliary input, AM/FM tuner, pre-wired for Navigator 4.
  • A multi-controller on the left-hand grip, which allows riders to operate the motorcycle’s systems and adjust its settings without taking their hands off the bars.  

 

Pre-Sale Program to End February 28

 

Due to extraordinary customer response, the K 1600 GT/GTL pre-sale program will end February 28 to enable BMW Motorrad retailers to fulfill pre-orders in a timely manner.

 

“The positive response to our pre-sale program speaks volumes about the reputation of our dealers and the strong confidence consumers have in BMW’s technology and quality,” commented Todd Andersen, Marketing Manager, BMW Motorrad USA.
