Press Release 14 August 1980


The well known BMW specialist dealer, Gus Kuhn BMW Centre announce an edition to their current range of new models.

This is the Gus Kuhn BMW Super Sport, competitively priced at £2,299. It is based on the standard R65, but features a tuned engine, nose fairing and expert preparation.

Engine power is increased by 6bhp by raising the compression ration, gas flowing the cylinder heads and re-jetting both carburettors. This work can also be carried out on any existing R65 for a total of £175.

A BMW nose fairing is fitted, which is also available separately for £50.

Gus Kuhn's also offer two optional extras for their R65 Super Sport, a higher rear axle ratio giving 70mph at only 4,500 rpm, for relaxed and economical cruising, plus a new paint finish to any BMW colour, from £100.

Commented managing director, Vincent Davey, "BMW fully approve our R65 Super Sport, so it is covered by their usual warranty. If R65 owners bring their bikes to us for tuning, they can check out the before and after bhp/speed figures on our rolling road".
