K1600 leaked
 
If these are accurate, it's the new K1600 in the works.

I say if it's got an inline 6, I'll be in line for one down the road-after the 1st model year bugs of course.

Dammit Buz! It got K1600 all-over my keyboard and screen! Next time, hold it upright or put it in a cupholder and it won't Leak all over the place!

Always a good idea. Everybody who bought Gen-1 C14's are wishing they'd held out for V 2.0.

Too true, that's why I waited 43 years to buy my Electraglide.....

I really liked the K1200GT when it came out in 2006 but I'm glad I waited for the K1300GT.

There are several notable improvements and I think that's pretty much par for the course when any new model is released.

My favorite line in the article:

"That 1,649cc inline-six makes its peak power of 160bhp at 7,500rpm and peak torque of 129lb/ft at 5,000rpm, but crucially, 90lb/ft — 7 more than the S1000RR develops total — will be available just above idle at 1,500rpm."

If only they bumped the horsepower to a round 175...
