BMW K 1600 GTL Exclusive Named Best Luxury Touring Motorcycle

”k1600 gtl”

On the heels of announcing 16 Best Bike Awards for 2014, BMW Motorrad USA received another coveted accolade from the motorcycle press. In his annual pick of the Top 10 Motorcycles for 2014, Ultimate MotorCycling Editor Don Williams named the BMW K 1600 GTL Exclusive “Best Luxury Touring” motorcycle.

“The BMW K 1600 GTL Exclusive defines luxury,” writes Williams. “Effortless to ride, despite its 794-pound claimed curb weight, the Exclusive has the six-cylinder power and the handling to take you and passenger comfortably across the country without a second thought. A long list of electronics look after you, allowing the rider to concentrate on the road and sights. Almost infinitely adjustable, you can personalize the ride exactly to your liking and the prevailing conditions. Practical features such as Hill Start Control and the adaptive xenon headlight push this bike over the top, along with the four layers of metallic high-gloss paint, and just the right amount of chrome. Spectacular.”

To date, BMW Motorrad USA has earned 17 Best Bike Awards for 2014. In addition to the Editor’s Choice award from Ultimate MotorCycling, BMW motorcycles garnered six “Best Of” awards from Motorcycle.com for the second year in a row, four “Best Of” awards from Motorcyclist, three of the top ten spots in Cycle World’s “Ten Best Bikes for 2014,” and Rider’s 2014 People’s Choice Motorcycle of the Year award for the BMW R 1200 RT. MSN Autos also chose the BMW R nineT and BMW S 1000 R as two of “The Best Bikes for the 2014 Riding Season.”
