K1600R - it would make it the most bad-ass naked street bike. Yamaha does have their Vmax. Heavy, but massive torque. There's a market for these bikes...people who want *instant* pull, and ride between 1000-5000rpm only. Harley riders who have decided they want to enter the modern age.
Oh, and they're right about going for the ultimate hyperbike. Tuned to about 190bhp, but with, say 120lb/ft torque, a K1600S could trounce the Hayabusas and ZX-14s the same way the S1000RR did to the literbike segment.
I love how BMW is no longer relying on their technology to sell their bikes, but beginning to top each market segment with the most powerful offering as well.
Still waiting to see what happens with the boxer line; by going water-cooled, the boxers should start making numbers similar to Ducati's Testastretta....
