2012 BMW Motorcycle

The 2012 BMW K 1600 GT grew from BMW’s obsession with six- cylinder automobiles, and it has a few surprises.

Claimed to be the narrowest inline-six ever, BMW claims the motor puts out an impressive 160 horsepower, but even more importantly, it produces 129 ft/lbs of torque, the stock in trade of a sport-tourer.

The new K 1600 GT features three engine modes-Dynamic, Road, Rain-plus Dynamic Traction Control as a factory option.The suspension is also electronically adjustable, with Sport, Normal, and Comfort modes.
