BMW Motorrad Japan Ignite Straight Six Project Customizes the K1600

Two icons in the international custom motorcycle game come together to launch their own entrants into the Straight Six Project sponsored by BMW Motorrad Japan. Using the K1600 GTL model and its six-cylinder engine as the starting base, Kenji Nagai of Ken's Factory and Kenji Kawakita of Hot-Dock Custom Cycles each reinterpreted and overhauled the look of the bike resulting in two very different and very incredible designs. The "Ken's Factory Special" takes on a streamlined, chopper look thanks to two handmade front forks, a low-riding aluminum seat, a revamped frame, and an exposed 20-inch rear tire. On the other hand, Kawakita's "Juggernaut" is a foreboding and imposing bike, boasting an exaggerated aluminum frame, a pair of oversize tires, dual fog lamps, and a trail bike-like beak that, all together, gives the bike a militaristic feel, especially with the blacked-out paint. You can learn more about the BMW Motorrad Japan Straight Six Project and their other bikes on their homepage or head directly to Ken's Factory and Hot-Dock Customs to redefine your own bike.
