BMW REVEALS SIX CYLINDER (AUS) PRICES

We lifted this off the news wires - BMW will confirm local pricing and availability SAP.
12 Cylinders - count 'em!
* All new 6-cylinder in-line engine
* Priced from $AU34,990 with high level of standard specification
* 118 kW power, 175 Nm of torque

BMW is aiming to shake up the touring and luxury-touring motorcycle markets with a pair of high-torque twins due in Australia within weeks.
The all new BMW K 1600 GT and K 1600 GTL models will see BMW offering 6-cylinder in-line power units for the first time.
For decades, 6-cylinder in-line engines have exercised a special fascination. In addition to their perfectly smooth running, they also offer supreme output and torque, giving the rider even more riding pleasure. It is for this reason that BMW Motorrad developed this engine in-house, offering customers even more variety.
The new 6-cylinder 1600 cc engine produces 118 kW and 175 Nm of torque; this therefore offers a high level of pulling power, especially in the lower and medium engine speed range.
Acceleration to 100 km/h is of the order of 3.2 seconds (without pannier), making the K 1600 a remarkably brisk machine.
Optimal handling is assured due to the precise suspension design. Classical BMW virtues such as safety, the fulfilment of the highest environmental standards and perfect ergonomics for both rider and pillion are set to define the new benchmark and thus the leading role in the middleweight class.
Early indications are that this innovative, exciting and distinctively styled range of bikes will be eagerly snapped up by customers. Strong interest has been registered by BMW Motorrad dealers across Australia since the new K 1600 range was announced.
Now BMW Motorrad can reveal pricing for the two models which begin arriving in dealerships in late-May. The BMW K 1600 GT will be priced from $34,990* plus on road costs, and the K 1600 GTL will be priced from $36,990* plus on road costs.
Due to historic trends Australian standard specification for both models is very high compared to other markets, making both of the K 1600 models extremely good value.
