The Highlights of the K 1600 Grand America
On and on.
On and on.
Comfortable cruising with an abundance of space: with the Grand America, you'll never want the journey to end. The standard Dynamic ESA embodies the best possible handling and riding dynamics - the "DYNAMIC" mode allows you to glide even smoother. Rest your legs on the standard footboard – laid-back, typical “American way of ride". The pillion seat height was reduced by 7 cm for even more accessibility, especially when mounting and dismounting the bike – and the foot pegs were also moved down. Furthermore, the standard engine protection bar and the audio system with navigation preparation are guaranteed to impress. The journey continues. Make yourself even more comfortable with the armrest accessory, available on request.
"Intelligent emergency call": the quick response in case of an accident and in emergency situations thanks to the ECALL system from BMW Motorrad.
The good feeling is always along for the ride.
BMW Motorrad is the first manufacturer to provide the "intelligent emergency call" ex works: a system fitted firmly on the handlebar, which in case of emergency can independently and automatically trigger the rescue chain and in so doing facilitate faster aid from the emergency services. The "intelligent emergency call" automatically becomes active following a light to heavy accident. But the rider can also manually trigger an emergency call at the push of a button, if for instance he/she has observed an accident. After activating the system, either automatically or manually, the GPS data of the location and the direction of travel of the motorcycle is sent via mobile phone connection to a BMW call centre. From here, the rescue chain is activated. For fast, precise help. And a great feeling on every tour.
Dynamic ESA: unevenness ironed flat.
For the best road contact.
The standard Dynamic ESA once again significantly increases the first-class riding comfort of the K 1600 Grand America. It ensures the best traction, safety and the highest level of comfort: dynamic ESA controls the suspension depending on the driving condition and riding manoeuvres by automatically adjusting to the detected conditions. In doing so, it ensures significantly improved contact between road and tyre, even when in a lean. Enabling riding characteristics which are always stable and an added boost in comfort and safety – especially on those long tours.
Reverse assistant: effortlessly manoeuvring and getting out of parking spaces.
Steep paths and narrow space conditions at popular look-out points or parking spots are no issue with the convenient torque control assist (TCA). Leaving you with only a smile for parking and manoeuvring. Activate the reverse assist by putting the bike into neutral and activating the assist function using the button on the left handlebar. As soon as the R is shown on the display and started by pressing it, you can glide out of your parking space with ease and get going on to your next destination with ample momentum.
