The new BMW K1600GTL

Post by fmcastro » Sat Dec 17, 2011 7:17 pm

I saw the K1600GTL and was impressed. It seems like a first class Sport/Tourer but NOT a machine to unseat the GL1800. I did not ride it (yet). I noticed the lack of crash bars (optional), the sound of the music system is almost identical to my '02 GL1800 (weak) and the back seat/grab rails are inadequate. I did like the dash, controls, removable bags & top case (ride naked) and the headlight. It is also 100 pounds lighter than the Wing.
I hope Honda revises the Wing, it is long in the tooth, way too heavy and needing a 6 speed automatic option.
