BMW prices K 1600 GT at $20,900 Review
If you want to park your riding pants in the saddle of the 2012 BMW K 1600 GT or the K 1600 GTL, get ready to hand over a stack of shiny pennies. BMW has officially released pricing on both bikes, and the K 1600 GT will set you back a lofty yet reasonable $20,900 without the $495 destination charge.
Sounds like a hefty chunk of change, no? It is, no doubt, but it’s also just $200 more than the base price for the K1200 LT that it’s replacing. Delving a little deeper in BMW’s model range, the K 1300 GT goes for $19,150 or $22,595 with the optional Premium Package.
For that 20K-plus stack of cash, you’re rewarded with niceties such as a dynamic-leveling xenon headlight, a heated seat and grips, ABS and a power-adjustable windshield among other tricks. Of course, all of that kit is strapped onto the company’s 160 horsepower, 1,649 cc engine. The mill is good for 129 pound-feet of torque, all of which is available from just 1,500 rpm.
Opting for the K 1600 GTL will add on even fancier gadgetry like Bluetooth, satellite radio and iPod integration in addition to body-color top cases. If you like the sound of that dance, get ready to tap your toes to the sound of $23,200 plus destination. 
Want one? We’d get your BMW dealer on speed dial pronto – BMW has also announced that it’ll stop taking preorders for the new K-series hotness at the end of February due to unexpectedly high demand. Hit the jump for the press release.
