2011 K1600 GTL- Travelled an amazing low 6500km- Be quick to grab this flagship pure luxury machine^BMW?s latest attempt at a new game changing model arrived in Australia this month (June 2011) with the new BMW K 1600 GT and BMW K 1600 GTL set to take the heavyweight touring market by storm. These powerful new machines are lighter than comparable motorcycles, offer exceptional handling for their category and bristle with well-executed features that help to establish a new level in touring motorcycles.^^A highlight of both models is the shared new six-cylinder engine. BMW?s track record with such engines in the automotive world is unparalleled and not surprisingly, this new donk is a beauty. In fact, this 1649cc of BMW brilliance completely annihilates any comparable motorcycle in relation to power and torque, from idle right through to the 8500 rev-limiter. There are only three engine configurations that provide inherently perfect balance: the straight-six, flat-six and V-12. It shows, as this long-stroke BMW straight-six is simply a marvel. At 103kg complete with gearbox, alternator and clutch and only 56cm in width it is a triumph of engineering.^Numbers don?t do it justice. BMW claim 158hp at 7750rpm, not an overwhelmingly impressive number for a motorcycle that registers more than 300kg on the scales. The standout figures are the huge 175Nm of torque at 5250rpm, and over 130Nm of twist from as low as 1500rpm. Most competitors have been neutering the bottom end torque of their bikes in recent times, presumably to extend gearbox and final drive longevity. BMW, however, give you all the Clydesdale-sized horses with a double shot of Viagra to boot. Only the larger capacity Gold Wing can offer comparable torque smooth enough to use down low, but it?s no match for the BMW when the revs rise. As for BMW?s other top-spec tourer, the R 1200 RT, the K 1600 machines have more torque at idle than the much loved Boxer can muster anywhere in their rev range.^^Between 4000 and 7500rpm is the motor?s sweet spot. Tall gearing sees the mill turning only 3000rpm at 110km/h and even its prodigious torque can?t overcome that handicap when urgent overtaking moves are called for and a downshift or two is required for truly rapid acceleration. It is certainly not lazy in the lower gears, it power wheelies in first gear with little provocation.^^In rain mode, full top-end power is available but throttle response is dulled and the torque curve flattened through the mid-range. Road and dynamic both offer the same power characteristics while dynamic sharpens throttle response a little too much for comfortable progress. Road is my preferred mode.^^It even sounds pretty damn good. The politically correct fun police from BMW HQ dictated that we were not able to sample a machine equipped with the optional Akrapovic mufflers. Personally, I think they should be prosecuted for cruelty to journalists.^Whilst the tall gearing no doubt helps fuel economy and highway relaxation, it can also lead you into ?lose your licence? territory quick smart. The GTL is electronically speed limited to 220km/h while the GT is allowed 30km/h more for the magistrate to consider.^In town or on the highway, the six-speed gearbox seems to offer a few more ratios than required. Often I just clicked through a few gears at a time as for smooth and legal progress, regardless of which cog was selected. Even letting the tachometer dip below 1000rpm in fifth gear doesn?t see the 1600 grumble. From a standstill the take-up point on the light clutch is hard to judge, although with time no doubt familiarity would render this a non-issue. The 10-plate wet clutch is also of the slipper variety, helping to negate any unruly sensations from the rear when dropping down too many cogs under brakes.^^BMW?s duolever front end is a match made in heaven for big motorcycles. Inherently resistant to pitch changes brought on by accelerative or braking forces, the duolever front suspension helps rider confidence and reduces the chronic front tyre wear common to large machines suspended by conventional forks. The Paralever rear suspension combines the swingarm, Cardan shaft drive and rear braking system, all into one single-sided unit.^^Once off the sidestand and rolling, the K 1600 machines offer almost ridiculously light steering and excellent foot-peg initiated manoeuvrability. With its 800mm seat height and 15kg less pork to carry, the GT is noticeably more agile and offers excellent ground clearance, making it well suited to aggressive riding in the hills. Due to a 50mm lower seat height, the GTL does give away a fair bit of ground clearance to the spritelier GT but it still takes a mid-corner bump at lean in order for the pegs to touch down.^^Put it this way: the GTL would still run rings around anything derived from a cruiser chassis to an almost laughable extent and remains sporting enough to dispense with almost any other large touring motorcycle on the marke
