The developing the engine protection bars for the K1600 GT and GTL, we were able to strike an ideal balance. On the one hand, we created a beautifully shaped bar that integrates perfectly into the design of the large, yet dynamically styled K1600, without making the bike appear even more massive. We followed and expanded on the lines of the fairing as well as the angle of the motor. On the other hand, we created a protection bar made of ideally shaped and complexly formed round tubing that will protect the bike, not only in a tip over situation, but also in worse mishaps.

Each engine bar is attached to the bike at three points, all of which are capable of handling large tensile and compression loads. In an impact situation, the forces are spread over the multiple attachment points. The bar need not be removed for routine maintenance, nor does it impede serviceability in any way. Cornering and ground clearances are not compromised. The bars are also fully compatible with the original BMW driving lights. Available chrome plated or powder coated black.

The facts:

  • Nicely shaped, integrated design
  • Fits K1600 GT and GTL
  • Three attachment points, each bar
  • Complexly shaped 25mm OD round tubing
  • Routine maintenance not affected
  • Cornering clearance not compromised
  • Available in silver, chrome or black
  • Supplied complete with all needed hardware and instructions
  • No modifications to the bike or fairing required
  • Made in Germany

Engine Bars Review by Rob from SC
I know sooner or later, I will have a slow or no speed drop of my bike. I'm confident that these engine bars will save me a lot of damage. I really like the way they conform to the engine, and the way the black bars basically blend in with the motorcycle. (Posted on 29/03/2013)
Engine protection bar set Review by Walt Grunenberg

AWSOME Protection Bars Review by Joe McCallister
The engine protection bars are awsome. The fit was perfect. They were easy to put on with the supplied instructions and a few tools. I would advise using a torque wrench, it is aluminum that the bolts go into. Bars are so great that I will get the ones to protect the bags next and the luggage rack after that. Again Wunderlich has the perfect products for the perfect bike. (Posted on 24/09/2012)
The best for protection Review by Bob
There are other choices from other manufacturers, but none offer as much protection as the Wunderlich bars.As others experienced, installation is straight forward and simple.Now, where are those highway pegs, Wunderlich? (Posted on 01/09/2012)
Worth the money Review by Dave Golden
I installed them. The instructions might was well be written in Greek, but you can figure it out. Removing the plastic front and the lower lights isn't difficult - but it must be done to install. Unlike others, I'm actually tested them....no, not on purpose. The K1600GTL is a fantastic bike, but it's damn heavy. I've dropped mine twice (I'm a disabled vet and probably shouldn't have bought such a heavy bike due to my bum leg). Luckily the bars worked just fine. No damage at all. Spend the money and buy them.

Black bars look great on a Red GT Review by Matt Hill
An easy installation, the bars offer great protection for the engine and look good on the red K1600GT. The bars came well packaged with all the parts. Instructions arrived in both german and english and were easy to follow (the english version anyways). (Posted on 09/07/2012)
Best Crash Protection Available Review by David P.
Do your homework and you'll come to the conclusion that the Wunderlich engine protection bars provide the most coverage and are the best made. I too, have a light gray K1600GT (looks white to me) and the black bars look OEM. In fact a bike this expensive should have had these installed from the factory. Do note that while these bars protect the Tupperware more than their competition, you can still easily remove all the plastic fairing bits. Nicely designed!I plan on purchasing the rear side case protection for when I travel with the panniers in place. I have asked Wunderlich to fabricate some sort of muffler protection for the rear of the bike as I ride 99% of the time without the cases on. Untapped revenue for this fine company.

Sturdy but heavy Review by Olivier
I can't comment on installation, as I got them installed by my dealer. These parts do the job as advertised, but they do add significant poundage to the bike's weight. On the flip side, the rear bars make putting the bike on its center stand much easier. I bought these to protect the bike in case of 0MPH drop, and they will definitely do the job.

Superior Protection Review by Kenneth Scott
Before ordering, I was a little reluctant to get the Wunderlich engine protection bars over the BMW version because I thought they looked too big and would spoil the looks of the bike. I received them and installed them. Actually, they look good and follow the contour of the bike. I have a light gray K1600GT and ordered the black set. From a short distance, you can't tell they are there. They look like apart of the bike. The way they are contoured, they will provide much better protection to not only the engine, but upper fairing as well. I have NOT tested this theory, but made this guess based on how they are contoured. I don't know if highway pegs will work with these bars. The BMW aux lights will install easily. Overall, I am very satisfied. I only purchased the engine protectors and not the rear set, that will be a future purchase. (Posted on 11/05/2012)
Well made but be sure you know your Nm to Ft.lbs. Review by Robert Sansom
Bars were easy to install and I think look good. Now I have a much simpler, easier place to hook a strap when needed for Trailering, Ferry crossing, etc. On the install remember; instructions for torque are in Nm.(Newton Meters) Most americans think in Ft.lbs. Be sure to convert if you don't have a Nm torque wrench. I didn't; I guessed and stripped one. Be nice if the Germans would include the conversion. (Posted on 01/05/2012)
