Are you a fan of less than 4 wheels? MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to present this unique and rarely seen 1991 BMW K1 motorcycle. This is the true classic BMW enthusiast’s bike, residing with the same owner for 16 years! It is finished in a metallic black finish with orange graphics.

The BMW K1 is a motorcycle that was designed by BMW as a high-speed sports-tourer. This bike was recently serviced with a new oil filter as well as new seals for the cylinders. Designed to change the motorcycle media and buying public’s mind of BMW as only a manufacturer of flat-twin tourers. Also, the K1 is the first motorcycle to be offered with ABS (anti-lock braking system).

Based on the previously introduced BMW K100, the K1 was designed for comfortable high-speed autobahn cruising at speeds of up to 150 mph. The radical aerodynamic design was a seven piece fiberglass  structure. It was mated with a stiffened chassis, that included a single sided Parallevers swingarm, designed to stop shaft drive induced pitch and dive under heavy acceleration and braking, the first use of this on a K-series bike. The K1 differed from the K100 in engineering terms, being designed for high speed and hence with many components either replaced or upgraded.

Retaining the K100’s bore and stroke, the K1 was BMW’s first 16-valve engine, using four valves per cylinder with the camshafts acting directly on the bucket tappets. Other improvements over the K100 included higher compression pistons, lighter connecting rods and a lighter crankshaft. This combined with digital Motronic engine management system resulted in a 10 hp gain over the K100, producing 100 hp at the crankshaft at 8,000 rpm.

The stronger tubular steel chassis was mounted on wide 17-inch FPS front wheels, 18-inch in the back, with low profile radial tires. The rear suspension was a Bilstein shock absorber acting on a single-sided Parallever swingarm which pushed the wheelbase out to 1,565 mm. On the front were twin 41.7 mm Marzocchi forks. The brakes were four-pot Brembo over two-pot on the K100, with a pair of 305 mm drilled discs. An Anti-lock braking system was optional in all markets except North America, where it was standard.

Powered by BMWs awesome 987 cc liquid-cooled longitudinal four-cylinder mated to a close ratio 5 speed manual transmission, original tank bag with both rain covers, tool kit and original saddle bags with K1 rain covers.

This Beemer is the best of both worlds… a piece of motorcycle history for the street or the track that you can actually GET OUT AND DRIVE!!!…er, RIDE!!!

This K1 is sold as is and is mileage exempt. It is being sold on a clean and clear California title.
