    You're right.. didn't think of it.
    It's like they recycled the thought.
    But on the K16, the front decal was even more... ummm.... noticeable/prominent/bad, and the nose looks almost glossy black.
    On the RT it's more of a matt gray.
    K16GT Sport doesn't work as well as the RT Sport for me.

    Anyway
    To each theri own.

    The 2014 K1600GT Sport paint was Sakhir Orange Metallic (and Black Storm Metallic).

    I like the Iconic paint jobs BMW offered in the UK. 100 of each model.

    I don't think we will see paint jobs like those mass produced from BMW.

    We're lucky if they paint all the panels.

    I agree, that black nose piece makes it look like a Honda. Not that they are bad bikes, far from it, but it's too Japanese looking. Glad I have the white one..
