    I6 : Inline-6 engine is the akin to V6 : V6 engine.... u don't call a V6 6V engine... ;)

    Apart from inline and V, we also have Flat-4, Flat-6, Flat-12 engines.

    Well understood that...but it should not be 16 piston as stated in the first place...
    inline 6 engine is a straight line 6 cylinder...
    V6 engine is 6 cylinder with V block 3 each piston in each block that is why call it V6 engine...
    same to V8 engine with a V block engine with 4 piston in each block...
    my 2cents...:burnout:

    BMW has boxer engines for the bikes. No flat engines for cars in the last 30 years....

    It's an 'I6' not '16'...

    "The BMW M52 is an I6 piston engine." What it meant was that the BMW M52 is an inline 6 internal combustion piston engine (not rotary or any other forms of engine)
