        Looks nice but not enough for me to want to upgrade.
        Only thing really new is the reverse and I don't need that (yet?).
        Also saw pictures of the blue GT Sport which has a black engine  now.
        I wonder when BMW will release anything on the new GTL.

            Had a chat with my dealer this morning. He was at the Intermot this week and had some additional background details.


            The GTL will be presented at the EICMA in Milano (november 2016). No additional information leaked yet, except that there will be a "bagger style" GTL available.


            Beside the reverse, changed fairing, new design of speedometer and automatic shift option, emergency call button, black engine (blue GT sport only),there are around 21 "changes", some hidden under the hood.


            Still, no reason to change from a previous GT or GTL, except if you really want one of the new features. But it's an interesting improvement of an already great bike!

            It doesn't have to make sense. It's ok if it's just fun :-)

                    Howdy All,
                    Im new here and waiting ever so patiently to get a K1600 GT. I have my heart set on the blue 17 GT mainly because of the black frame/engine, but also the redesigned fairing grabs me. The long release time for the 17's to come out gives me more time to sell off the HD CVO.

                      Looks like mine; only different.  ;-)
                      Motorcycling is not, of itself, inherently dangerous. It is however, extremely unforgiving of inattention, ignorance, incompetence or stupidity.
