BMW K75 Review

The K75 featured a 750cc horizontal three cylinder known as “the flying due to its brick like appearance. The has a characteristic high pitched at idle known in the BMW community as the “K whine”. For a motorcycle, the engine is as butter. There is hardly any vibration.

The engine supplies the with plenty of power the rpms and the power curve is remarkably flat and consistent. It has a amount of torque at lower and plenty of power up at higher as well. The gas mileage was OK, pretty considering the bike’s weight. the mileage I got was around 39 mpg, and was doing stop and go in Washington DC.

On the highway cruising at 80 mph or so it would get in the mid and I’m sure if I kept it at 65 it would get than that. In the twisties bike was nimble for its size and really not a bad handling bike.

The K75 is a bike at around 550lbs and it has a relatively high center of and seat height. For me, this was not really conducive to jumping on and around town…this bike to go the distance. It was comfortable for longer – extremely capable and smooth on the

But the height and weight made it a bit cumbersome around town. It was reason that ultimately me sell my bike, as when I it I was mostly riding and commuting the Washington DC area.

The bikes braking power was not the I did not have ABS on mine. But the bike being pretty heavy, had one front disc. It did also a rear disc as well, but the front disc was lacking a bit of power in my opinion.

It still stopped, but two up or loaded down gear you have to leave a bit more room in traffic.

How to a BMW K75 from a K1000 from the A K7 has a triangular exhaust baffle – points for three cylinders. A has a square baffle, four for four cylinders

The bike was pretty reliable, had a good battery charging and would never have a starting, even after left for a winter without a charge. The fuel injection helped with this. I did some wiring issues the rear lights, but nothing a couldn’t straighten out.


One you should be cognizant of with bikes, a potentially problematic is the splines in the drivetrain. There are a of connections within between sections and the clutch which are via splines. The spline area and itself is not immersed in lubrication, it on grease. Over time the grease tends to weather and if the splines are not lubricated properly the that joins the two areas wear and potentially fail.

There is virtually no way to tell the of the splines on a bike without the entire back end of the motorcycle and the splines out yourself. This is but definitely not the easiest procedure. So if buying the bike from who had it for a while it’s good if were familiar with the and did a spline lube every or two.


The K75 came in a of different editions, all of them the extent to which the bike had pieces and fairings, and also The K75rt was the full fairing model. All of the bikes also with hard cases for the of the bike.

The standard cases were junky though, and mine had a for loosing their locking while I was riding – yes the locking itself would basically topple out of the plastic casing, while it was supposed to be locked.

So to the K75 is a great bike for a rider who to do some long distance who has at least some expereince other motorcycles under his or her You can get them for much much than their value as a machine. They are very made and will go a long given the splines are tended
