Yep, BMW make the keys from the code (that you should keep safe), i.e. they can make a spare key without the original, hence the $130 price tag, a locksmith can make a copy of an existing key. In light of this the pricing is reasonable. If you want BMW look keys, you should be able to get BMW blanks on ebay and then take them to a locksmith to get them cut.
p.s. Unless you bought your bike second hand, you should have received two keys initially, maybe talk to your dealer if you didn't, they might still have them lying around at the dealership.
