2011 BMW K1600 pictures leaked

Published: 27 September 2010

These blurry, lo-res pictures are the first official images of BMW’s eagerly-awaited six-cylinder super-tourer, the K1600.

Leaked to Hell For Leather 10 days before the bike’s official unveiling at the Cologne Show next week, the images confirm the machine’s slick full-dresser style, novel technology including adaptive headlights and iDrive and lavish specification including LED.

MCN saw the machine, which will be available in two forms, a K1600GT and a ‘full-dress’ K1600GTL, and reported thoroughly on it back in July. But this is the first time official, full-length pictures of the newcomer have leaked out.

The all-new six-cylinder engine is the narrowest straight six motorcycle engine ever produced and only slightly wider than the Bavarian firm’s four-cylinder unit. Even more impressive is that it produces 160bhp at 7500rpm and a whopping 129lb.ft of torque at 5000rpm.

Arguably even more impressive is the claim that 90lb.ft of that chimes in from just 1500rpm.
