WOODCLIFF, N.J. - BMW now offers extra comfort for passengers aboard its K 1600 GTL luxury touring motorcycle. Rear comfort armrests — suitable only for the K 1600 GTL and not the GT — are available as a dealer-installed accessory only.

The armrests feature padding that lets passengers enjoy long trips in greater comfort. Ergonomically compatible with the standard top case backrest pad, they are hinged to facilitate mounting on and off the motorcycle. BMW recommends installation only by an authorized BMW motorcycle retailer.

Owners of the 2012 K 1600 GTL may also wish to retrofit the larger passenger seat grab handles of the 2013 K 1600 GTL at the same time as installation of the comfort arm rests to further upgrade their passenger’s comfort.

The BMW K 1600 GTL armrests are available at BMW retailers at an MSRP of $719.20, not including installation labor.
