2012 BMW K1300S HP Review

All for one. One for all. But not for anyone!

The limited edition K 1300 S HP Package has lots to offer. Underneath its exterior of brilliant Alpine White, deep Night Black and glowing Lupine Blue metallic is one of the most powerful engines, the 175 hp K 1300 S. This limited edition is loaded with extra HP Series parts, such as: high-quality HP Carbon parts for the front wheel cover, battery cover and rear seat cowling, HP rearsets for the rider and passenger, a beautiful Akrapovic sports silencer and a paddock stand. Each limited edition K 1300 S HP Package comes with a unique, numbered plaque. After all, there are only 750 of the K 1300 S with HP Package.

The wide range of additional options makes this K 1300 S even more individual. For example, ESA II enables convenient adjustment of the suspension set-up during travel, while Automatic Stability Control (ASC) provides excellent traction and ride stability. If you really want to get moving there is also the optional Gear Shift Assist, heated grips and tinted windshield. This special edition is based on the powerful 175 hp model. The perfect package for everyday riding and for longer trips, too.

The K 1300 S HP Package offers large savings compared to purchasing the components individually.


>> K 1300 S HP List of Standard Equipment:
Integral ABS (disengageable)
Gear Shift Assistant
ESA II (Electronic Suspension Adjustment)
ASC (Traction Control)
TPM (Tire Pressure Monitor)
On Board Computer
Heated Grips
Accessory Windshield
Carbon Fiber Front Fender
Carbon Fiber Air Box Cover
Carbon Fiber Clutch Cover
Carbon Fiber Pillion Seat Cover
HP Rearsets and Passenger Foot Pegs
Paddock Stand
Akrapovic Sports Silencer

There is no doubt that the 175bhp of sheer power means an amazing, adrenaline fuelled ride and no doubt that the K 1300 S High Performance is the best the K 1300 S has ever performed, sounded and looked.

Dripping in Carbon Fibre and with an Akropovic exhaust as standard, the HP edition gives you an amazing list of accessories which makes the K 1300 S look astonishing. The jaw-dropping, top quality carbon parts taken from the BMW Motorrad HP range, boast a high-grade, three-coat, high-gloss lacquered finish with a UV resistant coat, meaning a longer and more pristine appearance than any other available in the market.

As the sportiest representative of the BMW Motorrad K Series, the BMW K 1300 S combines sporting character and riding dynamics with a high level of comfort, lightfooted handling with absolute riding stability, and superior performance with perfect everyday practicality. At the same time, it offers a high level of protection against wind and weather and perfected ergonomics for long hauls.

The special model BMW K 1300 S with HP Package emphasises these virtues and upgrades the popular sports tourer to a vehicle of even greater prestige.

The special model bears an exclusive Edition badge of brushed aluminium on the airbox cover. This sporting character is underscored by the paintwork of solid Alpine White / metallic Lupin Blue / solid Night Black contrasting with the HP carbon parts like the covers for the front wheel, airbox, clutch, and seat.

The technical highlights of the 175 hp packing K 1300 S are the HP gearshift assistant, the Akrapović sports silencer, the electronic suspension adjustment ESA II, the automatic stability control ASC, the tyre pressure control RDC, the heated grips, and an onboard computer.

In addition, the BMW K 1300 S as a special model with HP Package benefits from yet more high quality equipment details. Its standard equipment includes the HP footrests for rider and passenger and a tinted windscreen.

For the perfect accommodation in the garage at home, this fully equipped special model of the BMW K 1300 S also comes with a paddock stand.
