Looking at K75, need opions

Post by jagarra » Wed Sep 30, 2015 12:59 pm

I have been watching a nice looking K75 S on the local Craig's list for a while. I would like to hear from any of you who have a K75 about your impressions, likes and gripes. Not sure if I really need it, but I sure like the looks of it.

Having also had boxers (air and oil), Ducatis, and Japanese bikes (mostly in-line 4's), I find the K75 surprisingly top-heavy. At speed, it retains a somewhat heavy feel, but works wonderfully. Can't say anything bad about the engine except that it, like the K1000, has a very automotive "soul" to it.

If you ride it and like it, it will run pretty much forever, but you really should see if you like it.
