77% of the k1 were sold in laguna-blue/ yellow and marrakesh-red/ yellow...
18% of the k1 were made in classic-black/ silver...
It means 95% of the k1 are available in only 3 colors...
Even as a k1 enthusiast I got bored of the 3 original colors
and after decades of use its condition lost attraction anyway.
I decided to try something different when the restoration was required.
The 1st renovation was the white/black, the 2nd was the broom-yellow/black.
I realized, inspired by BMW, that currently modern colors suit to the k1 very well.
