Japanese Tow Truck

My brother sent these pics today...I have never seen these. I would have to think that these bikes would have to have fantastic brakes. Also, I wonder what the weight of the "tow package" is? Would it impact the handling characteristics of the bike more, than say, a fat girl?
Amazing!

Funny, I expected the bikes to be K1200LT but then saw the kanji. And a GW to boot!
