The BMW K100RS SE, or Special Edition, was a limited run of the K100RS that featured a lovely blue and white paint job, hand drawn pin stripes, and color-matched hard luggage. It’s also famous for being the motorcycle that introduced ABS to the market.
Back in 1988, the BMW K100RS SE featured a 987cc liquid-cooled inline-4 engine, which was a stressed member of the frame. As noted by Rolling Physics Problem, “the starting point for the engine design was BMW’s Formula 2 4 cylinder racing engine, which had a reputation for bulletproof reliability when being run near redline for long periods of time. The Formula 2 engine — which displaced 2 liters — was scaled to 50 percent to achieve a displacement of 1000 ccs.”
This example has 61,658 miles and is offered by the original owner. It’s got the factory luggage, a Corbin seat, WP shock, aftermarket tail bag, and aftermarket back rest with integrated tail rack. The seller says that it runs excellent and it’s got new tires.
