In my biannual fantasizing of getting a motorcycle, I came across the BMW K1600. I noticed that, while in no way related to the S54, spec wise it's about a perfect half.

They also sound beautiful and now I wonder how impossible it would be to swap one into a 2002.

did we just learn that torque and displacement are often proportional?
How often do you get to compare two motors with the same cylinder count and double/half the displacement?

I watched Smoking Tire One Take with an old Honda stuffed with a motorcycle engine. I believe the redline was like 12k. I know only 1 fat dude could ride at a time that day due to power to weight ratio or so the owner said. Matt winding out the gears sounded pretty good, he was pretty excited about it too.
