The BMW K 1600 GT is voted "International Bike Of The Year 2011‘«ō. The BMW K 1600 GT gets the top vote of the international motorcycle press jury at the Brussels Motor Show.

The powerful in-line 6-cylinder engine was said to offer power, refinement and lots of fun.

On the road, the outstanding qualities of the K 1600 GT are its agile chassis and unusually light handling. All this gives the rider a unique riding experience, according to the jury, impressing the most demanding touring and sports motorcyclists.
The K 1600 GTL was rated separately and also convinced the jury, finishing fourth, while the S 1000 RR followed it in fifth place alongside the Kawasaki ZX-10R. With three models in the top five places, the BMW Motorrad put in a highly impressive showing overall.
