Radically modifying BMW ‘K 1600 GTL’ motorcycles which have a six-cylinder engine with a 1649 cc displacement, BMW motorrad japan’s ‘ignite straight six’ project comprise of two reinterpretations. the first, named ken’s factory special’, by kenji nagai of ken’s factory, has hand-made aluminum girder-type front forks, made from chopper style using a modified headstock. its original full fairing has been replaced by a small aluminum front cowl that houses the headlight, and the rear subframe and seat are removed for a low positioned aluminum seat. enhancing its dramatically low seat height, the narrow motorcycle uses a 23-inch front wheel and a 20-inch rear one.
