Ding Ding Ding…. We have a winner. 👍

BMW created the B/GA to capture market share from the “it just looks better” crowd. Mostly riders from the HD/Indian and Japanese Cruiser world. BMW hasn’t been shy about advertising that.

It was an easy way to bring more riders into the BMW fold. So it makes sense. But nothing is free. The B/GA versions aren’t simply “prettier” versions of the GT/GTL. There are handling compromises that aren’t up for debate. But the reality for most riders is that they won’t approach the conditions where you’d notice the difference.

When picking which K16 to go with, the thing is to pick the model that best matches your riding style. Pretending there are no performance differences between the B/GA and GT/GTL can possibly lead to major frustrations.
LMAO!!! We’ll done!
