This 1987 K100RS is super clean. It was pampered by it's previous owner and it shows. Come see for yourself.

ALL dealer fees included, Plus sales tax only.

The K100RS threw BMW orthodoxy out the window with its liquid-cooled 987cc four, but toed the company line with a longitudinal crankshaft that aligned with the driveshaft to reduce the power losses typical in drivetrain layouts with several 90-degree changes of direction. With the head on the left and the crankcase on the right, routine maintenance like adjusting the valves was simplified.

The “brick” engine was fed by Bosch LE-Jetronic fuel injection in place of the carburetors that had fueled generations of boxers, and two valves per cylinder were deemed appropriate to the bike’s sport-touring mission; in all, about 90 horsepower were available at a full twist of the throttle. The shaft drive got a new moniker, too––Compact Drive System.

Prices are still reasonable—between $2,500 and $3,500—and don’t shy away from high-mileage bikes if they come with complete service records. The K100RS is one of the best budget-sport tourers out there, and a good bet to appreciate over the years.

A landmark sport tourer with a healthy dash of style and the potential to become a practical classic.
