Following up on yesterday’s look back at the BMW K1, reader Wynkin de W shares a rare example of the K1’s final form that’s “new in box”. That’s usually a phrase you hear with toys, but is seems apt in this case considering how this crate has a viewport!
The “Ultima” was the name given to the last 100 K1s ever built, all of which were adorned in Dakar Yellow/Black and equipped with a number plate. This website dedicated to the last 100 has a registry that’s got info on 84 of 100. That website suggests that all of the Ultimas had ABS, a catalytic converter, heated grips, and powerlet socket, but they were listed as options in the brochure. The seller of this example lays out a different breakdown:
– 15 motorcycles without options
– 10 motorcycles with ABS braking
– 25 motorcycles with ABS braking and heated grips
– 50 motorcycles with ABS braking, heated grips and catalyst
This example is #43 of 100, and it’s never been started. The sale includes “all documents, registration card, certificate of conformity, manuals, and duplicate keys.”
Find this K1 for sale in Vieux-Berquin, France for €39,000 (roughly $43,700) here on Leboncoin.
