BMW K 1300 GT

High Performance Sport Touring

The “GT” series of BMW motorcycles are the German company’s answer to the quest for high-performance, long-distance riding. In fact, BMW is the only company to offer TWO purpose-built, sport-touring machines. (Their “RT” lineage is the other and traces its roots back to the 1970’s).  However, the GT series is the one that’s all about power – and lots of it!

The GT series comprises two engine sizes: the K 1200 GT (introduced in 2003) and the K 1300 GT (introduced in 2009).  However, in 2006 BMW introduced a completely brand new K 1200 GT which was superior to the models from 2003-2005.
