BMW K75 Tatanka
The Moto Sumisura "Tatanka 75" started out life as a BMW K75 which at the time of production was labeled as BMW's cheapest motorcycle. Regardless of it's less than flattering "point of difference" the K75 was a solid performer capable of 4.6 second 0-100 times and a top speed of around 120mph (193kmh). This particular K75 was the full fairing, road touring model in electric blue with roaring panther stickers on the front end. Trimmed fairings, a small headlight with brush guard, gum grips, powder coated rims, low profile indicators and a custom leather clad seat complete the transformation of the BMW. The final product is a much leaner bike that weighs considerably less than it's stock 227kg form.
