Here is a direct link to the full BMW Motorrad Six-Cylinder Technology Day
press release in .pdf format.
The Daidalgas pic is a photoshop mockup from last year, and always was pure speculation.
The pic by the gas pumps is supposedly BMW's K1600 test mule. So it would be accurate in terms of underlying technology, but most likely disguised cosmetically.
What we do know for certain is that BMW will release a Slant/6 K1600GT with a more sporty seating position, and a K1600GTL with a more touring seating position and other amenities like a built-in radio and full trunk.
New features include an adaptive headlight that not only tilts to match bike loading, but also swivels into corners based on lean angle and speed. And a 5.7" full color instrument display with Multi-Controller which controls everything from suspension settings, to heated grips/seat, to factory GPS, to built-in radio including iPod, MP3, USB, Bluetooth and satellite radio connections.
Other familiar features on both models include the usual array of traction control, tire pressure monitoring, partial-Integral ABS, etc., coupled with ESA II and the DuoLever and ParaLever suspension as on the current K-bikes. Plus the ability to switch between "Rain", "Road", and "Dynamic" driving modes.
This one's gonna be killer, guys.
