I found an issue of the swedish motorcycle magazine "Mc-Nytt" (issue #10-11 1988) at a local vintage parts market this summer. I found the below (now scanned) article in there saying the this model was awarded the title "Bike of the Year" back in 1988:

Here is a description of the model

Brochure for the 1989 model (K)

(88-89 was the same model generation with just about the same spec). The mufflers had 'copper colour' finish metal plates around the mufflers while the 88 model was plain matte black finish.
A trivia detail here is that the rider pictured on the front page have ordered himself a swedish bottle of mineral water in the bar (Ramlösa).
