From a recent BMW press release:

"....Continuation of product offensive

In addition to the expansion in the field of urban mobility, core segments from the 650 single-cylinder entry-level bike to the
6-cylinder luxury tourer will also be selectively expanded. "

:eek:

I'd be happy if they can pull another 50 lbs off of the K16, not add a bunch more crap to it . . . :cool:

Does lighter make it better for touring.
I can't speak of what I do not know. I had ridden a Goldwing just prior to my LT.
26 years on one and now 3 years on this. Plus touring more than ever I have encountered heavier stiffer winds. I like how I managed in those conditions and welcomed the weight. I do almost no city riding so those slow maneuvers are not my biggest concern. With you extensive resume' of riding/touring would you say that tourers like these can be down sized even more and still be worth their weight in gold, no pun intended.
ride safe :bmw:

If this results in some additional K1600-based choices that would be cool. Something with even more comfort, wind protection, etc.

Looking forward to what they roll out - or not. :)
