MCN Editor Marc Potter is at the world launch of the new BMW K1600GT. The new six cylinder 160.5bhp engine certainly seems to have impressed Potter this morning following 100km of mixed riding.

Phoning in from South Africa, Potter said: ?Unsurprisingly this bike is all about the creamy smoothness of the engine, it sounds like no other bike before it and has more than enough power to get you in trouble except the bike?s electronics means that everything is kept in check.


"It?s extremely comfortable, handles well and has got to be one of the ultimate bikes at covering big distances at speed."

Beamers might not have the looks in the 2 wheelers but they do denifinitely have what is required..

No chance, still go for Multistrada.
Pick up a ride and rewrite yourself to a new Identity....

multistrada doesn't give you the touring options as beamer.. multistrada is meant to be little bit of everything but master of none but the beamer is a master of touring and just for that many will go for it..

KTM Adventure may be :)

But what the hell, none of it is coming to India, and nothing in a good price range either!

I hope some Indian player takes notice and chip in with a tough product for us!

BMW has created a supersports touring bike that adds an extra level of sex appeal to big, fast touring bikes with the K1600GT.

The new silky-smooth inline six-cylinder 1600cc engine is one of the most intoxicating engines in motorcycling, let alone in touring, and offers new levels of thrust and smoothness not seen before on a bike.
