Hi all,
I am looking for a copy (or the original) VHS video of the K1 launch back in 1989. This was only supplied to dealers at the time but hopefully there may be a copy out there for sale?

If you can help with this search - please send a PM

Trapper

Just found this which appears to be a road test from 1989 for the K1 , Note - it is in German.

Some ABS testing at the very end.

Did you have any success getting the launch video ?

It certently isn't, it is in Danish.

The guy testing it is Mick Østergaard, a Danish motor-journalist, which always has been in trubble whit their union.
There has been some legal problems, but he makes some very funny test.

Hi Peter

Thanks for the update.

Sorry about the mistake with the language Embarassed

I did have my K100RS in your country 2 years ago and will never forget the experience of crossing the Oresund bridge in high winds.

That must have been a scary trip! affraid

I hate those bridges, I once had to cross Storebaelt in a Peugeot 106, in strong crosswind, when passing the anchor-block at 40km/h i completely shifted lane, luckily there wasn't any other traffic just around me.
