Overview[edit]

For 2014, BMW have announced a new iteration of the K1600 tourer – the K1600 GTL Exclusive. Still powered by BMW’s 175Nm, 160-horsepower inline-six, the K1600 GTL gets more equipment as standard – central locking with anti-theft alarm, ESA II electronic suspension adjustment, traction control (DTC), ABS, hill start control and even a ‘film antenna’ for the radio that is embedded in the topcase lid.

The 2014 K1600 GTL also gets a new, redesigned seat, revised instrumentation, heated backrest and comfortable armrests, LED auxiliary headlights and DRLs, adaptive xenon headlights, a tire pressure monitor, engine protection bar, fully chromed exhaust system, floor lighting and, for the first time on a BMW motorcycle, ‘Keyless Ride.’

As befits the K1600 GTL Exclusive’s top-of-the-range luxury tourer status, the bike gets a new, high-gloss “mineral white” paintjob, with contrasting shades of magnesium metallic matt and silver metallic radiator fins, plus color-coordinated upholstery for the seat cushions, backrest and pillion passenger armrests.


When dynamic performance meets luxury, the result is always exclusive and sensational. BMW Motorrad presents the K 1600 GTL Exclusive – a high-class touring bike that takes technology and visual styling to the extreme. This GTL makes all 6-cylinder dreams come true. The BMW K 1600 GTL Exclusive takes two-wheeled travel to a whole new level thanks to a 118 kW (160 hp) in-line six-cylinder engine that melds superlative power with exemplary refinement, as well as boasting superb standards of equipment and comfort. 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 and ensures the best possible reception quality while also enhancing the bike’s appearance. 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 styling of the “Exclusive” model likewise spells pure luxury – from the fuel tank’s aluminum moulding through the fully chromed exhaust system to the new-look instrumentation. The color scheme for the new K 1600 GTL Exclusive adds to the sense of elegance and aesthetic appeal. The bodywork’s four-coat paint finish in Mineral white metallic high gloss combines to striking effect with the classy chrome surfaces, the contrasting shade of Magnesium metallic matt and the Glacier silver metallic radiator fins. The color-coordinated upholstery for the seat cushions, backrest and pillion passenger armrests adds the perfect finishing touch.
