Congrats on the purchase and I simply love the color!

It looks strikingly familiar to Azari's bike found on the K1600 forum... ;)

Ride safely and enjoy...

But here in South Africa we have nothing yet.
That is my colour scheme also.

Does the K1200GT top boxes fit on the K1600GT? Same rack?

Did you get the adaptive healights? And if so good is that?

Come on tell us some more what do you feel compared to the K1200GT.

Or are you too busy loading the odometer :teeth

The K1200GT top box does fit the K1600GT.

Yes, it does. Tested at the dealership.

Top Box

The salesman (make that "Sales Manager") specifically told me that my current top box would not fit on the 1600. Looks like I'll have to see for myself.

Well...

Your sales manager is definitely wrong. I have personally seen the K13GT topbox being installed on the 1600GT. Fits perfectly, you do lose the central locking, though. Sounds to me somebody really wants to sell a $1500 topbox ;)

It may look like it fits and it will clamp into the K16 rack, but it is not a good fit and it is not designed to interface with the K16 rack. In other words; you are taking a chance of watching it bounce down the road and into on coming traffic.
