2015 BMW K 1600 GTL EXCLUSIVE

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.
