The consequences of the financial crisis the world faces are clearly tangible at INTERMOT 2010 in Cologne, where there is almost a "local fair" feeling to the proceedings. All major manufacturers from around the world are here, but we can count on the fingers of a single hand those who came to Germany to unveil really new products since most companies have drastically reduced their R&D investments as they wait for a better economic climate. Even with this, there are still some bright lights shining. Foremost is the new BMW super-tourer in its two forms, the K1600GT and K1600GTL. These bikes appear as a pinnacle of trust in the future, in addition to being the most spectacular and indisputably new models at the show.
