Buyer's Guide > K1600GA
Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
If you like the K1600B bagger but want more luxury, the K1600GA, aka the Grand America, delivers. It's basically the same bike, but with many options included as standard, as well as a high-end audio system. It has Dynamic ESA (electronic suspension), reverse assist gear, three riding modes (Rain, Road, Dynamic), and a host of other electronic riding aids. With all this luxury coming fitted from the factory, there's still room for improvement; BMW offers an up/down quickshifter as an option, along with an integrated GPS, adaptive headlights, keyless ignition and more.
