1992 BMW K100RS

In Germany, Sport by Abhi1 Comment

This is a final-year example of BMW’s K100, a bike that was incredibly important in BMW’s history. Originally developed because the German firm felt their usual boxer engine would struggle to meet new emissions standards (they even stopped building the R100 for a short period of time), this bike was the result of a $110 million gamble to build a new inline-four. Sales were initially slow but it’s obvious now with nearly 30 years of hindsight that the K bikes (affectionately known as the Flying Brick) were a good thing for BMW.

The 987cc inline-four produced 88 horsepower and 63 pound-feet of torque, which was good enough to move the 536 pound bike up to 137 miles per hour. For more information on the K100, check out this Buyers Guide from Real Classic, who actually start with an assertion I agree with – a K75 is a better bike.

This example is being offered by the 3rd owner who has a full history of the bike. It has 45,000 miles and comes with the owner’s manual, tool roll, BMW System cases and Givi top case, as well as an aftermarket seat and a Remus full exhaust system. Lots of work was done in the last two years, including a new progressive rear shock, fork seals, clutch, steering bearings, and the aftermarket paint job.
