About BMW K75

When you ride a BMW motorcycle you are more than a biker — you are a BMW rider. BMW riders know this, and many of them start their love of German-made motorcycles on the BMW K75. It was produced between 1985 and 1995 and, at the time, was BMW's entry-level bike. You can find many selections of this popular bike, as well as parts and accessories like a BMW K75 saddlebag, within the vast inventory on eBay. In terms of styling, the K75 ranged from a naked bike up to a touring model. Do not be fooled by the stripped down version, though, as this is more of a touring bike than a street bike. In this sense, the BMW K75 is built in the BMW mold. The high ride position — 31.9 inches — and heaviness of the bike make it cumbersome to ride in heavy traffic, but on the open road it is comfortable and smooth. The BMW K75 seat, handlebar, and foot peg positions leave you sitting comfortably while on board. The engine is an air-cooled, horizontal, three-cylinder 750 cc engine. It produces 75 brake horsepower and 50 pound-feet of torque.
