Woodcliff Lake, NJ – November 18, 2016…Six-cylinder in-line engines have been an integral part of BMW automobile history and brand identity for more than 80 years. With the launch of the K 1600 GT and GTL in 2010, BMW Motorrad succeeded in skillfully transferring this tradition to the motorcycle market by developing the lightest and most compact 6-cylinder in-line engine for motorcycles with a capacity of over 1,000 cubic centimeters.
