1988 BMW 740cc K75

An all-new design that was supposed to replace BMW's traditional flat-twins, the four-cylinder K100 arrived for 1984 restating the virtues of solidity, comfort and exemplary build quality long associated with the marque. In 1985 the K100 spawned a 740cc three-cylinder K75 variant that featured a 120-degree crankshaft and a higher compression ratio. Weighing less than the K100 and with 75bhp on tap, the K75 was a lively performer and deservedly popular but did not receive the development that went into the four-cylinder models, which would later benefit from four valves per cylinder. The usual range of BMW model variants was produced up to the end of three-cylinder K-Series production in 1995. Currently displaying a total of 54,918 miles on the odometer, this K75 is described as in ‘average’ condition, its engine running and sounding OK. Offered with Swansea V5C, it will require servicing, re-commissioning and the usual safety checks following a period of inactivity, and thus is sold strictly as viewed. No reserve.
