Just heard from Touratech. There are several new offerings for the K1600. Some of these (tank bags) have been posted, but looks like they are starting to crank out new tailbags, too. Your OTL staff (me!:D) will be getting some of these goodies for testing purposes. Keep your eye on upcoming OTL issues for product reviews.
[B]Touratech Accessories for BMW K 1600 GT
[/B]It not only has an impressive appearance, but it is also a most powerful touring bike which lets kilometres and distances simply melt away: the BMW K 1600 GT, recently voted “International Bike of the Year”. A motorbike designed for long and comfortable journeys also needs appropriate bags and tank bags. That’s why Touratech offers specially adapted luggage solutions for any tour big or small – custom-made for the K 1600 GT and, of course, designed and produced in Germany.
“New Style” Tank Bag *Waterproof* for BMW K 1600 GT
In elegant grey colours, this tank bag for the BMW K 1600 GT will win you over with its perfect fit and functionality and has many clever details like e.g. an integrated document compartment in the top cover with loops for pens and detachable credit card holder, an A4 size map pocket, which is attached with Velcro and easy to remove, two external side mesh pockets and a sturdy and practical carrying handle. The main compartment with a capacity of approximately 20 litres can easily be expanded to 28 litres. The reflective elasticated strap at the top improves stability when the bag is expanded. The attachment kit is easily fitted to the motorbike and the tank bag can be quickly removed via Velcro and turn-button fasteners.

Streetline “Touring” Bag for Pillion Seat, BMW K 1600 GT
The new generation of motorbike luggage systems, in a sportive design. Light, flexibel and in the same style as the “Touring” tank bag. This pillion seat bag was designed together with the tank bag and makes a nice and practical unit on the K 1600 GT. The available space of about 21 litres offers a lot of storage room. Big 3M reflective applications provide additional security on the bike. With the new universal attachment kit, the Streetline pillion bags can also be fitted to bikes that Touratech doesn’t offer a specific attachment kit for. Three wide elastic straps go under the pillion seat to secure the attachment kit. The overlength Velcro fastener can be individually shortened for a perfect fit. An innovative silicone coating ensures that the bag stays securely without slipping. Thanks to the handle and the unique design, the pillion bag can be used as hand luggage and looks much better than the usual luggage roll bags. With the included straps, the pillion seat bag can be used as a backpack, too. The Streetline “Touring” bag for the pillion seat has water repellent zippers and is made of strong Teflon-coated CORDURA which is both water-repellent and dirt-resistant.

Universal Travel Bag, BMW K 1600 GT
In case the K 1600 GT’s standard panniers are too small for all the luggage or if a soft luggage system is preferred, Touratech’s universal Travel Bag is a good option.

In addition, a small Add Bag is available in a matching design, expanding the storage space to 53 litres in total.
