Upspec K1600GTL

By Mario

Bike review

Looking for a new touring bike? Look no further than BMW’s updated version of its top-tier luxury tourer, the K1600 GTL.

This bike originally hit the markets in 2010 and still retains many of the electronic features found on the standard GTL (three riding modes, traction control and electronic suspension adjustment as well as BMW Motorrad Integral ABS).

The Exclusive adds a number of aesthetic enhancements, updated technology and passenger comforts such as:

  • an enlarged seat area for passengers, with the upper section of the seat being heated
  • keyless ride system
  • hill start control
  • adaptive xenon headlight?
