2014 BMW K1600GTL Exclusive Outed in CARB Documents
Earlier this summer, BMW announced its 2014 six-cylinder K1600GT including a new variant called the K1600GT Sport. A new document released by the California Air Resources Board reveals the more luxurious K1600GTL may be getting its own special variant as well.

Oddly enough, the K1600GT Sport was not included on the executive order, though it wouldn’t be difficult to get one issued later as the Sport uses the same 1649cc engine and exhaust system as the base model.
As for the K1600GTL Exclusive, we know little else beyond the name and the 1649cc engine. A special edition color should be expected, and perhaps some add-ons like BMW’s adaptive headlight and the new Navigator V GPS. Another possibility is BMW’s semi-active suspension.
More news should come out in the weeks ahead leading up to the 2013 EICMA show in Milan in November.
