BMW K1 Gallery
The BMW Kl was the solution to a serious
problem that faced Europe's largest motorcycle manufacturer
in the late 1980s. Although well-established the product
line-up was looking increasingly tired and dated.
Their range of K100, K75 and flat-twin touring roadsters
enjoyed a solid reputation for quality engineering
and reliability. However, the market was experiencing
unprecedented demand for large capacity sports bikes.
In comparison to the sports flagships of the Japanese,
BMW's bikes appeared tame and a touch staid. The company
needed a new pure sports motorcycle. In 1989, they
unveiled the Kl, and what a striking, sensational-looking
motorcycle it was.
