2013 BMW K1300R Review

2013 BMW K1300R

Aggressive. Adrenaline pure. Even when standing still. And even more so as soon as it gets going. What happens at this moment is among the special moments in the life of a biker: a rocket-like start.

Thanks to its geometry, this projectile zooms into orbit like no other. Perfect for the quarter mile. But also for everyday use. And bends. It does not only supremely tap into 173 bhp and 140 Nm and produce a sound from its new hexagonal tube with catalytic converter and exhaust valve that gives you goose pimples. But also because all this goes hand in hand with fuel consumption and exhaust emission levels which even a “sensible” bike would be proud. After all, BMW stands for Bayerische Motoren Werke.

The very finest technology, ergonomics from the people who invented it and a style which is simply unforgettable. And you can hardly believe that despite all this emotional appeal, it is one of the safest motorcycles with the best levels of everyday suitability: ABS and ESA II as optional extras, for example.

And even the accessories bowl you over: racers order the automatic shift function which allows them to burn through the gears, as well as the MotoGP-style 2D dashboard – just so that the lap times are official. And if you want to load it up there are even luggage solutions, too. But even they cannot change the fact that this is the coolest power in town. Contact your dealer if you have any questions or concerns about test driving this bike!

 

It's impossible to imagine a more striking or more exciting naked bike. Designed without compromise to impress - and to perform. An output of 173hp (127 kW) an­d 140 Nm of torque ensure it can handle anything the street can throw at it. Looks aren't always deceptive.

Imposing design meets unique technology. Technology such as the famous BMW Motorrad Duolever for optimum handling, and optional BMW Motorrad ABS and TPC Tyre Pressure Control. The K 1300 R is also the only naked bike available with gear shift assist, allowing riders to change up without declutching or taking their hand off the throttle.

ESA II (Electronic Suspension Adjustment) is available as an option on the K 1300 R, allowing you to modify the suspension set-up depending on the load you are carrying

The BMW K1300R: power has a face.

The 2013 the BMW K 1300 R is available in the following new paint finishes:

The paint finishes Ostra grey metallic matt/Sapphire black metallic, Light grey metallic and Black satin gloss/Granite grey metallic matt are no longer available.

The sports wheels previously available as an optional extra are now included in the range of standard fittings. The Dynamic package of the K 1300 R therefore no longer includes them.
