A fine sports tourer with wonderful looks; rare too
Weeping fork seals.
Rear brake light micro switch died a death.
Most parts are K100 16v, so no problem there.
Bodywork getting scarce and expensive.
Build quality second to none, but in its day it was BMW's flagship model and nine grand new.
Easy to work on.
Comfortable, really great fairing, legs can feel cramped over a long haul.
Bad vibration through bars. Not, not good in thin summer gloves.
Headlight needs a bigger bulb.
Luggage can be a problem owing to fairing boxes on the back. Use a rucksack and travel light.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Don't Know
