Featured In the November 2022 issue of Roadracing World:

           “Every time I walk up to a full-sized tourer, I feel a bit overwhelmed. And the 2023 BMW K1600 Grand America defines full-sized. It has the same number of cylinders, more displacement, and weighs more than the Suzuki SV650 streetbike and the Honda CBR600RR racebike that I have in my garage—combined.

           “I tend to approach big bikes like the BMW with a bit of trepidation, and I handle them with kid gloves. My inputs are gentle, and I start out by just kind of cruising around. And ridden this way, the K1600 was underwhelming. It felt vague at the bars, a bit disconnected. Gotta remember that BMW builds bikes that are designed to be ridden hard…”

“The Interconnected Getaway Machine,” by Michael Gougis


Even though it weighs 824 pounds, the BMW K1600 Grand America is stable and fast, with solid brakes and enough raw performance to that, for all its sophistication and cutting-edge interactive riding electronic features, underneath there’s a pretty decent motorcycle. Read what it’s like to live with the Grand America in the latest issue of Roadracing World!
