We define quantum lens spaces as {\textquoteleft}direct sums of line bundles{\textquoteright} and exhibit them as {\textquoteleft}total spaces{\textquoteright} of certain principal bundles over quantum projective spaces. For each of these quantum lens spaces we construct an analogue of the classical Gysin sequence in K-theory. We use the sequence to compute the K-theory of the quantum lens spaces, in particular to give explicit geometric representatives of their K-theory classes. These representatives are interpreted as {\textquoteleft}line bundles{\textquoteright} over quantum lens spaces and generically define {\textquoteleft}torsion classes{\textquoteright}. We work out explicit examples of these classes.
