Beyond that look for many additions current model lines. A K1600C could be one of those.

    Never say never; however, I wouldn't expect one this year. I really expect a sub 500cc bike, a new mid-sized thumper, and two models of the new 800-900cc twin in R and GS form, to be the four world premiers for the Italian EICMA show. For the R1250 line the color updates already announced are about all I expect. The expansion of the RnineT model line the last couple of years have taken up the marketing air for the boxer. Next year at the Cologne show is when you should look for a new R boxer.

    That said, the K1600B was announced at the Los Angeles show last year. At that time management talked about more US market motorcycles to come. If there is a K1600C, or if that is faint, a R1250C they might break cover in Long Beach November 17.

    Keep in mind all of this and a fiver gets you a large coffee and a fresh roll at the official Fly-Over-Land pit stop.
