6-cylinder in-line engine K1600GT was first presented at the Intermot in 2010, and during that time any highway tourer could not surpass it in the comfort, innovations and performance. In addition, the bike received a new front design and has become even more impetuous, and the new control panel became more understandable and easy to read.

The engine produces 160 hp at peak and 175 Nm of torque at the maximum possible comfort, provided by the most complete set of controlling electronics, making K1600GT the most dynamic and modern luxury tourer on the market. Electronically adjustable D-ESA now comes as standard. New feature is the same reverse as in the Honda Gold Wing: reverse can be activated with the left panel, and the starter motor activates too.
