Eschelon1 Posted November 17, 2007 Share Posted November 17, 2007 This goes back aways but it still nags at me today. In 1995 BMW started phasing out the K75 and was discontinued in 1998. BMW said it was because the K75 cost almost as much to build as the K100/1100 (Although the 4 valve head never made it to the triple), but they couldn't sell it anywhere near the selling price of the K100/1100. Fast forward a year or two, with the R1100's in production, BMW announces the R850. In Europe, they built an R850RT that looks just like the 1100/1150RT. 'Cept for smaller pistons, the 850 must have cost exactly what it cost to build the 1100, but yet it would have to be priced lower accordingly to sell. What we have hear is a failure to communicate. So.... what does BMW really mean when they say there is no problem with the Final Drives? Just wonderin' Link to comment
