2017 BMW K1600B on the Total Motorcycle Cool Wall: VOTE TODAY

http://www.totalmotorcycle.com/BBS/viewtopic.php?f=61&t=54144


2017 BMW K1600B on www.Totalmotorcycle.com
The new K 1600 B: emotion and fascination with 6 cylinders in the exclusive Bagger style...

The presentation of the “Concept 101” concept study as part of the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este in spring 2015 was an impressive new chapter for BMW Motorrad in the history of BMW Motorrad Concept Bikes. This BMW Motorrad interpretation of motorcycling on endless highways, the dream of freedom and independence and the embodiment of “Grand American Touring” now becomes reality in form of a series version of the new K 1600 B bagger.

As a high-performance, highly emotional and exclusive motorcycle, the new K 1600 B with the familiar 6-cylinder in-line engine and supreme 118 kW (160 hp) output, like the “Concept 101” study that preceded it, already embodies the motto of the “Spirit of the Open Road”. It is synonymous with elegance, power and luxury on two wheels and transforms every road, every tour and every moment into a particularly intense experience.

The characteristic streamlining with a low rear section and masculine colour scheme make for relaxed dynamic elegance.

Good Bye Victory Motorcycle - We Will Miss You! 1998-2017

Polaris Industries Inc. today announced it will immediately begin winding down its Victory Motorcycles brand and related operations. Polaris will assist dealers in liquidating existing inventories while continuing to supply parts for a period of 10 years, along with providing service and warranty coverage to Victory dealers and owners. From 1998-2017 Vicotry hung on for as long as it could with declining sales and losing money in 3 of the last 5 years. Good Bye Victory

As a former Victory Vision owner let me say this. They haven't really added to the line in years. I think they made this decision as soon as Indian was purchased and spun up. The models have been stagnant and no attention was given to them. The changes were mostly in trim levels and in gimmicks like the Magnum. Also once the Indian came out at a lower price point there wasn't anything that Victory had to offer.
As I said when I got my Vision there wasn't any way for a new motorcyclist to get into the brand either. Their lowest cost bike was $13k back in 2011. I only got my Vision because I won it as part of a contest that Polaris did. I have a tremendous amount of regret that I sold it but that was due to unemployment and Harley hasn't really sold me on their product since then with either of the two models I've had. I truly moss my Vision Tour. It was unique and got looks everywhere it went. Which was Victory's tour de force. They were unique looking books that stood out. They just needed a way into the brand instead of being yet another me to Harley Brand.
I might still go after getting a used Vision to replace my Sportster. It wasn't a perfect bike but it was a lot of fun on a 300 mile day.

2017 Moto Guzzi V7 III Special - Coolness Factor = 86.7%
Featured: January 13th - December 20th, 2017
Most popular vote category: Awesome

Motorcycle Cool Wall discussion: viewtopic.php?f=61&t=54108
Total Motorcycle model page: http://www.totalmotorcycle.com/motorcyc ... pecial.htm

Your Coolness Factor of the 2017 Moto Guzzi V7 III Special is:

Awesome (3 points) 16
Cool (2 points) 8
Uncool (1 point) 1
Fail (0 point) 0

Total votes: 25

= a Coolwall Factor of 86.7%


Notes: First new model of 2017. First bike of 2017. First Awesome vote for 2017. Lots of nice firsts to start the new year off with. The new Moto Guzzi V7III Special once again is completely updated to improve on the previous model. It is truly hard to hate on the Guzzi V7, there is just something about it we can all like in someway. While it may not be our #1 choice of bike, any of us (new or expert rider) wouldn't hesitate to take it for a spin if offered. And that's motorcycle mojo right there.

I am Canadian but have just moved from the UK after 3 years of living there. I do miss North American roads and food, although I do have to hand it to the Brits, they have great Pubs! Now I am living in Houston, Texas and plan to stay here for awhile. Now the Texans know how to do a BBQ right! :)
