BMW Announces 2016 Color Updates

BMW announced a number of new color options for the 2016 model year as well as a special edition 2016 R1200GS Triple Black (pictured above). The update announcement includes the F800GT, R1200GS, R1200GS Adventure, R1200RT, R nineT, S1000RR, S1000R, S1000XR, K1600GT, K1600GTL and K1600GTL Exclusive.

All of these 2016 models are essentially the same as the 2015 iterations, but with new color options and, in the case of some European models, BMWís dynamic brake light system.

R1200GS Triple Black
BMW has given the R1200GS the Triple Black treatment before but the special edition color scheme is back again for 2016. The central fuel tank cover, side panels and front mudguard are painted a Black storm metallic color while the fork tubes are an anodised black. The Triple Black also gets wire spoke wheels, usually standard on the GS Adventure but as an add-on to the regular GS.

For 2016, the regular R1200GS receives a light white non-metallic color scheme while losing the Alpine white 3 non-metallic and Black storm metallic options. European models also have the option of dynamic brake light with ABS Pro in the Riding Modes Pro package.

R1200GS Adventure
The GSA also gets the Riding Modes Pro option with dynamic brake light as well as new Racing red non-metallic matt (at least, it does if youíre in Europe. Not so much, elsewhere) and Ocean blue metallic matt. Lost with the calendar year are the Olive non-metallic matt and Racing blue metallic matt colors.

R nineT
The R nineT roadster returns for 2016 with two choices of hand-brushed exposed aluminum fuel tanks: with a visible welding seam or with a smoothed seam. Heated grips are also a new optional add-on.

Our reigning Editor and Readerís Choice Sport-Touring Motorcycle of the Year returns for 2016 with a new Platin bronze metallic color but loses the Callisto grey metallic matt option.

The monolith metallic matt with Sapphire black metallic option pictured here replaces the Dark graphite metallic option for the 2016 F800GT.

Already having received a significant update last year, the S1000RR returns for 2016 with a new Black storm metallic and Racing red non-metallic color option.

The S1000R streetfighter returns with just a small tweak: the Light white non-metallic paint scheme gets a new grained fuel tank trim.

K1600GT, K1600GTL and K1600GTL Exclusive.
European-spec models of the six-cylinder K1600GT, K1600GTL and K1600GTL Exclusive all receive ABS Pro and dynamic brake lights as standard equipment.

The GT gets a Cosmic blue metallic with Black storm metallic color scheme but loses the Sakhir orange metallic/Black storm metallic color from last year. The GTL replaces last yearís Magnesium beige metallic color with the new Ocean blue metallic matt. The Exclusive model receives a new Sparkling storm metallic but loses the Mineral white metallic option.
