Description

The first generation of K-bikes offered unique qualities and decent performance although there was excessive engine vibration, underdamped suspension and a hyperactive final-drive. These problems were addressed in 1991 with the updated K100RS which had a 16-valve cylinder head, upgraded brakes and reworked frame and suspension. The RS had serious horsepower conferred by the hot-rodded engine that went into the K1100LT. 1992 saw another revolution with the K1100RS. This is a book of contemporary road and comparison tests, specification & technical data, long term reports, new model introductions. Models include: K100, K100RS, K100RT, K100LT, K100RS ABS, K1100RT, K1100LT, K1100RS,
