    In the US, the K1300GT was discontinued after the 2010 model year. The K1300S continued on for several more years.

    BMW ran a few special ones in 2011. They were a silver color if I remember right.

    For the K1300GT BMW did release an Exclusive Edition that sold as a 2011 model. RealOEM shows 08/2010 as the last month of production, with a gap between that date and 05/2010. Im not sure if regular production ended in May and the Exclusives were produced in August or if there were examples produced prior to August. I do know that when I bought my GT in October of 2010 there were plenty of them in the channel so long as you wanted Apple Candy Red. There is some history of BMW releasing special edition models as a model is being phased outan example being the 1997 special edition K1100LT as that model was being phased out.

    Ive never seen a K1300GT Exclusive in the flesh.

    You are correct. The K13GT was one fine bike. I had one for few years. Wish I had it back.

    Is the K1600GT discontinued?

    Bumping this post to see if any news.

    It is now April and there are plenty of 2021 K1600s at dealers except the GT. However, the motorrad website shows only the 2020 GT and others are 2021. Local dealer has one or two 2020 GTs only--I'll check with them on my next visit to get the story if any. Wonder if anyone here has seen any updates.

    I found a reasonable reason for the apparently temporary situation for the 2021 GT:
