Sadhguru is well-known for his love for automobiles, especially his love for motorcycles. In the past, Sadhguru has been spotted with various high-end motorcycles and he even chose a customised Honda VFR X for his ride-for-cause ‘Save Cauvery River’. Sadhguru has now been spotted with the gigantic BMW K 1600 GT to meet Hollywood actor Will Smith. Sadhguru is currently in the USA and he will cover 10,000 miles or 16,093 km across the country as a part of ‘Exploring Spiritual America’ drive.
Jaggi Vasudev or Sadhguru will ride the massive BMW K 1600 GT, which has never been launched in India. In the USA, the bike costs much less due to the import taxes. Since it is a front-heavy touring motorcycle, cruising on the highways is extremely fun and stable on it. It gulps miles without any problem whatsoever.
This is one of the most luxurious and heaviest motorcycles that he has been spotted riding in recent times. The BMW K 1600 GT weighs a massive 350 kg but since he weight distribution is towards the front, it is extremely stable on the straight highways, which makes it a perfect choice for cross country rides. The BMW K 1600 GT was never officially launched in India. However, its more loaded sibling, the K 1600 GTL came with a price tag of Rs 30 lakh, on-road. In the USA, the bike that Jaggi Vasudev is riding costs around Rs 17 lakh in Indian rupees but importing it to India will increase the cost by more than double due to the taxes.
It comes powered by a massive 1.6-litre, 6-cylinder, in-line engine. It generates a maximum power of 160 PS and peak torque of 174 Nm. The bike is loaded with features like electric fuel injection with ride-by-wire system and it can reach a maximum speed of more than 200 km/h. The stopping power comes from dual-floating disc brakes with four-piston fixed-position callipers in the front and a rear single-disc brake in the rear.
Sadhguru is a major motorcycle fanatic and has been riding since his young days. In an interview, he revealed that he had a Yamaha RD 350 during his college days and used to ride across India on it. In the past, he took a Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled with Baba Ramdev. He has also been spotted with a BMW R1200 GS and various dirt bikes riding around the world.
He also loves mass-segment bikes equally and took a modified Jawa 42 on a ride too. Riding a motorcycle surely is not confined to your age and if you’re passionate enough, you can ride all your life!
