BMW Motorrad Japan Ignite Straight Six

May 5, 2015

The BMW K1600 GTL gets a double helping of custom goodness courtesy BMW Motorrad Japan and the results are pretty phenomenal, in two distinctly separate ways.

The project is being called “Ignite Straight Six,” and it features a pair of highly respected workshops, Ken’s Factory and Hot-Dock Custom Cycles, putting their spin on an already potent motorcycle that has a six-cylinder engine with 1649cc displacement. In version one, “Ken’s Factory Special,” designer Kenji Nagai used handmade aluminum front forks, a modified headstock, and a small aluminum front cowl to achieve a chopper-style bike with a crazy low-riding aluminum seat sitting on an exposed 20-inch rear tire. Meanwhile the “Juggernaut” by Kenji Kawakita is the black-on-black bruiser of the bunch, with an aluminum tubing skeleton hosting the internal engine and dual fog lights amping up the military feel to this particular K1600 GTL.
