Buyer's Guide > K1600GT
Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
The K1600GT makes good use of its inline six to hustle you down the highway in style, along with your luggage, your significant other, and whatever else you want to haul along. In 2017, the GT got some aerodynamic refinement for the bodywork, making it more comfortable to ride at speed. There's also improved semi-active suspension with auto damping adjust, and switchable drive modes for Road or Dynamic. The K1600GT also has an up-and-down quickshifter,, and the transmission gets a reverse-assist feature.
