Comfort, performance, and innovative technology helped sway the judges in favour of the K1600GT, which boasts a powerful six-cylinder engine, ABS brakes, traction control, and a navigation system.

With three finalists for this year's award, BMW Motorrad stands out as one of the top bike manufacturers in the world.
