***** New Price *****
Great bike. Very fast. Very clean. 79K. $3999 OBO. I've gone for the comfort of the V-Star over the thrill of speed.
Engine Liquid-cooled in-line four cc 1171
Claimed power (bhp) 130bhp
Compression ratio 11.5:1
Front suspension Telelever single shock, 115mm spring travel
Rear suspension One damper, 150mm spring travel, adjustments for preload and rebound damping.
Front brake 2, four-piston Brembo calipers, 305mm discs
Rear brake Double-action Brembo caliper, 285mm disc.
Front wheel 3.50 x 17in; cast aluminium
Rear wheel 5.00 x 17in; cast aluminium.
Capacity is increased from 1092 to 1171cc by use of a new crankshaft with 5mm more stroke. Extra zip comes from lightweight pistons and valvegear, higher 11.5:1 compression ratio and ram-air intake all of which contribute to its peak output of 130bhp at 8750rpm. (Pity the poor old Germans and French, who get a gummed-up 100bhp lemon.) That makes the K12 by far BMW's most powerful bike ever which is clear from the moment you wind open its throttle for the first time.
