Is that really the case? I just always assumed that the US market was larger than that for BMW. Although, related to that, I am always stunned when I read the hugely disproportionate sales number of Harleys to BMWs in this country. Baffling,... at least to me. If it is indeed that small a segment of their sales, I could see why BMW doesn't bother making it a 24/12 type clock. I usually trust their judgment.

I would also agree that the K75 seemed to be pretty close to a perfect machine, and I've never even owned one.
