This motorcycle was conversed as a show bike, a so-called Café Racer by a German BMW specialist in 2015. The pseudonym stands for sports and fun bikes for cities.
The Café Racer offered here is based on a BMW K 100 RS. A Café Racer is a motorcycle that was modified according to certain opical and technical criteria. The name comes from the ill-famous Ace Café in London, which was a meeting place of the biker and rocker crowd in the 1960s. People did not just get together at the café to make trouble, but also to tune up their bikes. The so-called Café Racer was the result.
The BMW K 100 RS is a touring and sports bike originally developed for racing (RS), it is the top model of the series K 100. A total of 34,335 units were built at the BMW works in Berlin Spandau between 1983 and 1989. While the basic variant did not have fairing, the K 100 RS was offered with a full aerodynamic fairing. The water-cooled two-valve four-cylinder in-line engine was an absolute innovation for the K 100 series, as BMW used to make air-cooled boxer engines only. The K 100 RS has a cubic capacity of 987 ccm and an output of 66 kW (90 hp), a maximum torque of 86 Nm at 6000 rpm. It accelerates in 4.3 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h reaching a maximum speed of 215 km/h. The motorbike offers a very comfortable seating position, a well-tuned chassis suspension, an elastic engine with the revolutionary Bosch injection and an easy-care fully suspended drive.
