BMW probably came out with a liquid cooled engine after they developed a proprietary antifreeze/coolant that they can sell for three times the cost of anything else. And, it will void your warranty if you use anything else.

haha and the properly spec'd version won't be available in the US and the dealers will tell you to use something other than what BMW specs and there will be a 1000 post thread on ADV debating the issue.

Hmm, seems fishy. My money says these -drawings- represent THE bike, or are at least very very very close. Time will tell.

The drawings aren't even consistent...check out the exhaust header on the last picture compared with the previous ones...completely different.

OMG. That's hilarious! Now, along with the "which oil" threads, we'll have the 'which coolant' do you use threads. Now that's progress.

Improvements instead of H2O cooled latest

Swap out your shocks for Ohlins,add a slipper clutch.full Akro pipe with PV5&Autotone = completely different bike.

Can't believe such a heavy dual sport can be made this much better...keep your water cooled '13 and learn to tweak what is a proven ride.

It just gets better!

I think it was on the BMWMOA boards but I believe they already have a thread started for what water/coolant they should use.

In a boxer twin, rocking couple is introduced because of the con rod offset.

BMW uses an inline six for their automotive products, which is far, far smoother than a boxer motor. I would say that an inline six is far smoother than a boxer.

My K1600GT with the inline 6 is FAR smoother than any of the 5 boxers I've had. The Gt is the smoothest bike/engine I've ever experienced. Amazing bike.
