Goldwing BMW K1600 GTL

Honda 1800 and the BMW K1600 GTL Challenge

for the information old goldwinger.

The Honda 1800 in its present state of and weight simply does not compare to the BMW K1600.

I suspect it be difficult for Honda to lower its hefty 900 lbs to match the BMW K1600 GTL and maintain its present configuration and comforts.

The basic configuration of the engine does have the to match or even better the K1600 output, but would a few significant modifications to allow efficient higher engine

Simply increasing the displacement to cc may not be enough.

The main engine are the low compression ratio and volumetric It simply was not designed as a high engine.

Both could be with the changes to a 4 valve and different cam timing. This allow a much higher ratio and improved volumetric at higher RPM.

The present speed at maximum HP RPM is the lowest I ever found at about feet per minute. Typically non-racing motorcycle engines piston speeds between to 3900 feet per minute at HP.

This would suggest the could operate at higher What it needs is improved efficiency and increased compression to take advantage of the higher RPM

The present very low piston could be a factor in its legendary and long life.

A low cruising RPM of 2500 at 60 MPH is also a feature I many touring types favour.

With its present 71 mm …, at a speed at maximum HP of 3900 per minute, the engine speed be 8370 RPM.

Both the 1800 and BMW K1600 GTL have the 71 mm ….

At a piston speed of feet per minute at maximum many modern non-racing engines develop over 4 per square inch of total area at maximum RWHP. The comes in at about 4.25 per square inch of piston

Both the Goldwing 1800 and 1700 have the same 40 inches of total piston

At the same state of tune as the the Honda Goldwing 1800 produce 170 RWHP at 8400 Same as the VMAX.

With the proposed engine modifications, the prototype EVO 6 could be interesting as a to the VMAX. Especially if Honda increased the displacement to 2000 cc by changing the bore. The EVO 6 focus is not on touring or sport/touring.

I am left with the impression many of the statements of many they still want the to be on touring and comfort with of low end power but in a much lighter

Many members of this web are making powerful statements in and ordering the BMW K1600 GT or GTL over the

Honda has pretty much had its own way the Goldwing for many years. It be interesting to see how Honda reacts to the real BMW K1600 challenge.
