My 2nd cousin (part of the Mueller family) works for BMW in Germany, he leaked these advance brochure pictures to me just a few days ago. He's probably going to get **** canned for doing this but he just could NOT resist:
be a 1.6L supercharged four cylinder engine with close to 175 hp to keep the GT's in the mirrors: Top speed will be 170 mph and 0-60 in 2.8 seconds.
In addition the 2010 K1600LTS will have:
Gyroscopic stabilizer ala the Segway to keep it from falling over when you stop.
One piece tire and rim combination and hollow non-pressuized tires. (optional)
Heads up windshield display.
Pressurized self leveling jacks instead of a center stand.
Electric driver seat that travels up/down, fore/aft.
Active noise cancelling Bose stereo system with integrated intercom - no helmet speakers required since you and the passenger are enveloped in a "cone of silence" once activated.
Infrared active heating system for cold weather riding.
A "micro drop" evaporative spray misting system for hot weather riding. The nozzles are located around the perimeter of the windshield.
Remotely adjustable tire pressures that will automatically adjust for low/high speed riding which will compensate for the dreaded "wobble" and "scalloping" as well as extend tire life to 30K front and rear.
... and last but not least a flexible shaft rear drive. No way they would ever go back in time to something simple and dependable like a belt drive.
My cousin's name is Joe.
