BMW Motorrad has announced the recommended retail prices for the new K 1600 range. The agile and dynamic, continent-crossing K 1600 GT will be £14,950 and the K 1600 GTL, the pinnacle of luxury, long-distance touring, will be £16,515.

In addition to the high level of standard equipment on the GT and GTL, two enhanced specification models featuring the world's first motorcycle Adaptive Headlight, Dynamic Traction Control and Tyre Pressure Control will also be available in the UK. The K 1600 GT SE will be £15,765 and K 1600 GTL E will be £17,315.

Ian Furse, BMW Motorrad UK Sales Manager, said: "The new six-cylinder tourers are the most technologically advanced bikes ever built for the road and feature the first ever Adaptive Headlight on a motorcycle. The standard level of equipment on these bikes is incredibly high but owners can take it even higher with options including Dynamic Traction Control, Electronic Suspension Adjustment II, a GPS navigation system which integrates with the fuel range computer and an iPod/USB stick compatible Audio System.

"The stunning engine, the most compact six-cylinder motorcycle powerplant currently in production, combined with the use of lightweight materials and construction techniques previously only found on supersports machines, mean that the K 1600 GT and GTL offer a truly premium experience. And with the announcement of these prices, we can offer this class-leading package at truly competitive prices. With these two bikes, BMW Motorrad has created a new category of performance touring motorcycles."
