The BMW K1600GTL and K1600GT are touring motorcycles announced by BMW Motorrad in July 2010, for production in 2011. The K1600GTL is a full dress luxury tourer intended to compete with the Honda Goldwing. The K1600GT is more of a sport tourer similar to the existing K1300GT and previous K1200GT models. The bikes feature a new 1649 cc (100.6 cu in) straight-six engine which is mounted transversely across the chassis. The engine is angled forward by 50°. The engine was originally used on the Concept 6, a concept bike that was shown at the 2009 EICMA Milan Motor Show. BMW claims that the engine at 560 mm (22 in) wide, just 67 mm (2.6 in) wider than the K1300 engine, is the narrowest six-cylinder engine ever produced. Cylinder bore is 67.5 mm (2.66 in) and the distance between cylinder centres 77 mm (3.0 in). The camshaft is hollow, with cam lobes pressed on, which saves around 2 lb (0.91 kg). The engine has electronic throttle control and multiple drive modes which can be set according to road conditions. New technology for BMW on these models include adaptive headlamps which adjust up or down according to how the bike is pitched in order to keep the beam flat, and left or right as the bike tilts to turn.
