Gran Turismo. Travel in big style. That means combining dynamic performance and comfort - and transforming distance into free space. BMW Motorrad's vision was the essence of this philosophy - the pure sense of Gran Turismo. This vision has now taken shape in the K 1600 GT.


  • From day one when the limo collected us from the airport it was a holiday we would cherish for the rest of our life. Everything we did and were involved in showed someone had put a lot of thought into making this holiday one they would like to go on. The bike was new and gleaming, they all gleam when you start out, 4000 km plus of glorious unbelievable scenery and experiences later, they had got dirty but it’s actually a veneer of fantastic memories. Wifey was as enthusiastic as me and even enjoyed her days in the air conditioned bus that carried our luggage about on the one day it rained, one of the best riding days, and on the days she let me ride the best motorcycle road in the world solo. It left me speechless and euphoric!

Bike Overview

The in-line 6-cylinder engines by BMW are legendary. A legend that has been realised once more in the K 1600 GT - but now more compactly than ever before. 1649 cc, 118 kW (160 bhp) and a maximum torque of 175 Nm. Even the facts are impressive. But the riding experience is even more inspiring. The transversely mounted engine delivers an extraordinary level of dynamic performance as well as refined running smoothness.

If the rider is in the mood for a show of sporty prowess, the engine willingly puts in a burst of speed even in the lower engine speed range, and it is in its element over high-speed stretches. Over 70% of the maximum torque is available from just 1,500 rpm.

Motorcycles can be picked up and dropped off at our Auckland and Christchurch bases. If picked up at one and dropped off at the other a one way fee of NZ$390 applies
