Equipped with 1,600cc, 160bhp, 129lb/ft straight-six engines, the upcoming BMW K1600GT and K1600GTL promise to be two of the most over-the-top tourers ever made. Continuing the long tease, BMW Motorrad’s head of design, David Robb, talks luxury tourer design at extreme length in these eight videos.

Previously we’ve shown you technical details of the new six-cylinder engine, taken a look at the new adaptive headlights that can see around turns, explained BMW’s ESA II adjustable suspension with world-first adjustable spring rate and covered the worrying inclusion of an iDrive-like control system for the K1600′s first-on-a-bike multi-color TFT display.

    Someone ought to tell Mr. Robb that he needs to make a choice – either get new glasses (contacts, actually) or go the other way and embrace the Mr. Six look. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mr._Six

      Actually, I’m totally grooving the glasses.
      And they actually do fit his outlook.
      Overengineered. Built to last.
