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 new, exclusive Sparkling Storm Metallic paintwork effect visibly changes between black and a warm golden green-brown depending on the way the light hits it.
The design: a perfectly crafted masterpiece.
“Exclusive” at first sight: three layers of paint give the outer skin of the GTL Exclusive a level of quality and depth which is unparalleled. Mineral white metallic is seamlessly blended with gentle Magnesium metallic matt and supplemented with numerous surfaces finished in chrome, seats in matching colour and a wealth of other details – the GTL Exclusive radiates luxury and dynamic performance from every angle.
The technology: only the best.
The GTL Exclusive also features the silken-soft yet powerful in-line 6-cylinder. Its exclusivity lies in the detail: Hill Start Control for moving off effortlessly on slopes, Keyless Ride automatically releases the steering lock, ignition, fuel tank lid and alarm system as soon as the key is within two metres of the motorcycle. The radio foil aerial is integrated invisibly in the body and the intelligent daytime riding light with LED technology enhances visibility and safety.
The equipment: uncompromising.
The equipment options assembled for the GTL Exclusive are those most frequently in demand among motorcyclists. Central locking with alarm system and a heatable seat with backrest come as standard. ESA II, DTC, RDC, LED additional headlight, adaptive xenon headlight, a second brake light and ground lighting are included for travel comfort. The functions of the BMW on-board computer Pro have been improved and an engine guard is incorporated as standard.
