Enjoy some of quite rare pictures of the k1 prototype.
The k1 prototype is more slender than the
production series k1 and has achieved a class leading aerodynamic value,
with an even lower drag coefficient of CwxA = 0,28 and supposedly a max speed of 256km/h.
It would be a great pleasure to ride such a prototype...
A lot of changes have been made before the series k1 was launched to the market:
The complete fairing, head light, speedo, paralever, brake-disks, steering bar, etc. were modified.
The advantage for the series k1 are the carry-over parts used.
The pictures were made during one of the k1 meeting in 2008, scheduled annually in several locations.
Many thanks to Henry and the BMW dealer Holzleitner made it possible to see the prototype!
