Even disguised in zebra-print decals to obscure fine details, we can see a clear familial resemblance to the K1600 in that massive front fairing, starting with the triple headlight array. Large air ducts beneath those headlights presumably guide cool air over small, side-mounted radiators required by the new cooling system, just like the GS. Not visible in the images, but almost certainly incorporated into this redesign, should be BMW’s latest E-gas ride-by-wire throttle control, enabling switchable ride modes and electronic cruise control. Also expect BMW’s Automatic Stability Control (ASC, or traction control), as well as its new Dynamic ESA (Electronic Suspension Adjustment) that lets riders easily reconfigure the ride characteristics for different conditions and loads, as well as actively and automatically adjusts damping on the fly. Antilock brakes will be standard, monitoring what look now to be radial-mounted brake calipers.
