just got back from intermot show in cologne. new 1600 gt is great, pls allow to introduce myself on my future beauty. available march 2011. price not known yet.
very comfy, lots of space compared to 2010rt which is a bit cramped especially for 2-up. more comfy than the k1200/1300 - had 2 of those as well. angle of the legs is better also handlebar reach. does not seem to have any bars adjustment as the former k but for me is perfect - 1.85m tall, 32" inseamdkjkwood said:So what did it feel like? Comfy ergos?
The GTL shown at Jay Leno's Garage had a socket at the top of the rider's right interior fairing panel. I have to believe, based on BMW's consistently providing rear outlet mounting flats on the rear of most all the bikes since the '98/'99 LT, there will be provisions for sockets on the GT and GTL.ferrasr said:Did they talk about or did you notice where one plugs in the heated clothing? Here in Canada this is a must to extend the riding season as well as keeping the SO happy. I did not notice anything integrated like on the LT. Having it integrated is so much nicer then just running connections up between the seat.
And we all thought the BMW motorcycles were high maintenance items.... ! :rotf:Stixx said:Well I think the implication is that "If you had one of these , you could have one of these". Jus sayin
Personally I ain't buying it. But it makes for good sales schtick.
Which I find very surprising. Even with the savings afforded by Xenon and LED lighting, the K1600GT seems a couple of hundred shy. Two sets of Gerbings or equivilent would use 250-300 of the available.Doru said:
I noticed that too, but perhaps they are using more LED's or other ways to reduce the power consumption so there could be as much available for add on accessories as the RT, GT or LT. It is a good question/concern.Doru said:
Good lord! How much excess power do we need??Doru said:
