The BMW K 1600 Grand America

Experience more together

Travelling in pairs means experiencing every kilometre twice. Makes sense, right? However, with the K 1600 Grand America you will always experience more. Its superior six-cylinder engine lets you casually cruise towards the horizon: perfectly equipped with footboards, topcase featuring backrest and high windscreen. As a result, it won’t be easy to say which was the most beautiful moment of the tour at the end of each day. Still, the stories about every kilometre will feel at least twice as good. Simply put: #RideAndShare.

The standard audio system 2.0 also opens up new dimensions. Apart from intuitive menu navigation and numerous sound profiles, there is not much to see: the antennas have been concealed. This makes enjoying the music all the more impressive. Just what you expect!
