    Rider88, I've also got a K12RS. Just put a PR3 on the front ahead of my 2000 mile trip to the RA rally. Felt much like the PR2 it replaced (8000 miles, but too thin to risk on this trip). Did...

    Brianplug has it right. BMW engineers used a Peugeot engine as inspiration early in the development process. I've read nothing that suggests Peugeot had any active hand in the K bikes development.
