interesting ...looks more like the indian new version with its lines

but typically retains the bmw k1600 instrumentation and gimics

some times a simpler revision of what we see and switch is what we are remembering asthe basis of a solid performer

I think that almost all manufacturers have forgotten what is basic ...and keep on trying to push for exclusivity at any cost to you and I
not that it doesn't have its place ...many folks aspire to owning such a detailed piece of electromechanical awesomeness

but some times the old rule kiss applies.....(keep it simple simon )

thanks for the link ... awesome

If anything it's a dumbed down version of the GT.
No adaptive headlight. Bit of a gimmick, but a brilliant idea. It's spooky going around corners, up and down hills and the light stays on the back of a car. Instruments aren't the same either.
Wood panels on a BMW! Ugh.
Can't see many being sold on this side of the pond looking at the ground clearance.
Another Harley clone. Not my cup of tea but if you want something like a Harley, why not buy the real thing?

Must be Aiming for the Honda F6B market, would be hard to tell them apart if painted the same colour, Just as the Honda'sare popular, no doubt so would this one be.

Eighteen months or more ago I was thumbing through Bagger magazine on smoko on work. Right on the inside sleeve was a full page ad for the K1600GT/GTL series. Product planning starts early. BMW need another model for this engine because it isn't selling as well worldwide as they'd hoped. We will see yet another K16 variant within a year.
