Production numbers info

Hello all,

I am new to this site and to Bmw motorcycles. I just purchased a 2001 LT-I with 40,000 miles on it for $2900 (a good deal I believe) but I was wondering if anyone knew how many LT's were produced in 2001.

2001 bmw K1200LT-I
75 Honda CB550K
72 honda ct70 trail 70
1983 Nissan 280zx 2+2 turbo

Re: Production numbers info

I can't answer your question abut how many '01 LT's were made, but I just wanted to affirm that $2900 would be a great price, even for a basket case.

Re: Production numbers info

That was a VERY good price. I sold my 2000 LT last June for $4500.00 with 72K on the clock.

That's a nice way of saying it in a mild way Steve.

Re: Production numbers info

Thanks for the info on the price guys. The bike only needed brake lines which are being put on now and other than that it's in perfect condition.

Re: Production numbers info

I have the following info on production numbers, straight from the bmw archives in Munich:

n der BMW K 1200 LT wurden die nachfolgenden Stückzahlen produziert:

1998 till 2003: 24.550 units, of which 10.690 US-models
2004 till 2008: 13.322 units of which 4.987 US-models

I would be interested how many are still hitting the roads but they have no info on that...

Have a nice day!

Yes, I was surprised also by the low production numbers. We are riding on bikes threatened by extinction, dinosaurs so to speak...
