K1600GTL at Jay Leno’s Garage

While the K1600GT and K1600GTL were being introduced to the world at the INTERMOT show in Cologne, Germany, BMW was also showing the GTL to the US press at Jay Leno’s garage in Burbank, California. The Vice President of BMW Motorrad USA, Pieter de Waal, was there to point out some of the new and exciting technology that went into the bike. While most of what was discussed we’ve reported to you already, he did mention the high fuel economy, 45-50 MPG, the new big six should achieve as well as the low 29 in. seat height (two other optional, taller, adjustable seats are available).

Jay Leno has provided a short video discussing the bike with Peter on his website. So, if you would like listen to the new six-cylinder engine running, as well as commentary from Jay and Peter, press play below.

  1. I love the idea. It looks like a great bike. I look forward to more info and pricing. I’m sure it has all the bells and whistles, but the price will be the problem. Can I get a test ride?
