The 'wing is in BMWs sights

BMW Motorrad is unabashedly chasing the American cruiser/touring market with its feet-forward Grand America full-dresser version of the K 12600 B.

As a K1600 owner, I cant see the point of this bike at all. It is too similar to the base vehicle - in fact I would bet that there are very few differences to the front 3/4 of both. Defo not one for me...

160 hp yet limited to 101 MPH? The point is?
