• BMW may be moving forward to production with the 6 cylinder concept (K1600R) motorcycle

      Most of you know that BMW launched the first modern production 6 cylinder bike this year, the K1600 GT and GTL. Visor Down reports BMW wants to get more out of the development cost of the motor by putting it into a sport bike. It makes sense to us and BMW did release the Concept 6 bike which featured a sport bike based on the 6 cylinder powerplant. The bike would effectively replace the K1300R but would need some massaging as the K1300 4 cylinder puts out 173 horsepower vs. 160 HP of the 6 in the K1600 GT and GTL.

        What an awesome bike! I bet it feels torquey... I've never rode an I6 bike. So this is 1.6L?

        Ha I'm already trying to imagine how you would route the exhaust for a turbo kit.... probably would make an insane mile bike!

        Yes, 1.6.

        I'm thinking about how awesome this would be in some cars... maybe even as a V12 Click here to enlarge

        If they are still showing this concept then the production model should be around 90%-95% of the concept. That is a bad ride!!!!!!!!

        They aren't showing the concept officially anymore but the production bike would be a similar idea to the concept.
