Here's a translation of the article:


BMW six-cylinder LT
Erlkönig caught?

What looks at first like a Kawasaki GTR turns out on closer inspection as a new BMW LT with the first time last fall presented new six-cylinder inline engine.
s/14.06.2010
Erlkönig BMW LT

Today we received an interesting mail one of our readers: "Dear TF-editing, on my vacation by the U.S. in April, I was at a gas station near Los Angeles motorcycle accident this unknown to me before the lens. The driver spoke German, perhaps there is a new, camouflaged BMW? Perhaps the photo is of interest to you ... "

That's very well, because it is unmistakably presented here at a yet unknown, BMW, probably the most well-packaged new cylinder, the end of last year was. Among his key data include 55 degree slope, 1.6 liter, power 160-170 hp and above all, a decent torque, that is to let go even at 2000 rpm whopping 130 Nm.

BMW Concept 6
The BMW suspension is a familiar commodity, that is an aluminum-tube frame, front wheel suspension and Paralever rear. Striking are the long wheelbase, the voluminous muffler and far to the driver hinragende handlebars. The windshield goes up and down electrically, the bags are integrated into the vehicle, the rear-view mirrors are in contrast to the previous LT not embedded in the cladding, but sit at separate instructions booklet. LED panel embedded into the center ¹ s are used as daytime running lights. The new K 1600 LT is very likely this year at the Intermot of 6-10. Presented in October in Cologne.

Who once the report of November at the launch of the BMW "Concept 6 would read," bikes, who has the chance.

I think i will wait for the 2nd version of the bike to be launched as this is not a beautifull bike to look at - specific reference to the top bin. Not as soft on the eye as the LT. Thanks for the update Dave.
