    This friend is not very knowledgeable about BMW's. It probable did have 130 hp. OR Did the K1100 have 100hp.? I trying to come up with a picture of one to go down memory lane with him. The bike is long gone { Total}'. He keep saying light blue, ABS brakes, heated grips and seat and cast wheels.

    I don't remember.
    You asked about the HP, the K100 had 100 HP and I think the K1100 also had 100.
    Hopefully someone will come along to tell you the year and if it was 100 HP for sure.

    BMW had a Capri Blue K1200RS in 2003 and 2004.

    This is a friend that I lost contact with for 9 years. I meet him again this last weekend. I was thinking about purchasing his bike but now it is long gone. Still a picture would be nice.

    Thank you all for helping me out. He put it on cosignment at a used car dealership, the lot boy , washed and cleaned it. Then took it for a ride and total it. The saleman calls my friend and told him what had happen. My friend told him " well it looks like you just sold it to the lot boy." He did get paid for it. Sad ending to that K1200RS.
