2016 BMW K 1600 GT

The BMW K 1600 GT’s inline-6 sprung from BMW’s obsession with six-cylinder automobiles. BMW claims the motor puts out an impressive 160 horsepower, but even more importantly, it produces 129 ft/lbs of torque, the stock in trade of a sport-tourer.

The 2016 BMW K 1600 GT has Dynamic Traction Control as a standard feature, along with BMW’s ABS Pro, which is corner-sensitive. By any standard, the GT is a high-performance luxury tourer ready for the interstate and backroads.
