2013 BMW K1300S Review

2013 BMW K1300S

The interceptor. The athlete. Aerodynamic, avant-garde. Do you know of another sporty bike with this profile? A bike that develops such pulling power with 175 bhp that it take the heat out of many a 200 bhp bike? But a bike you can still take out on a quick trip simply because it has great everyday suitability? At the same time a technological treat?

The reasons: 140 Nm from 1,293 cc – and at 8,250 rpm too. With a throaty sound from a cool, hexagonal tube. With catalytic converter and exhaust valve. And with fuel consumption and exhaust emission values which would suit many a machine with half the dynamic performance.

With this jet, the whole concept of speed moves into a new dimension. This in-line 4-cylinder delivers its power in such a way that you can almost feel it when standing still. That’s because within the engine speed ranges in which you move more than 80% of the time – i.e. the lower and medium speed ranges – it delivers performance from the first yard. The real thing. And in terms of safety features, this machine is unique: ABS as standard with ASC and ESA optional. And the extras are amazing: race through the gears with the automatic shift function, pure racing in view with the 2D dashboard.

Extreme power. Thrilling acceleration. Instant responses across the rev range. Welcome to the ultimate sports tourer - the new BMW K 1300 S.

Its styling alone promises speed and performance. And with an output of 175hp and 140Nm of torque, speed and performance is exactly what you get. Your heart races with the engine all the way up to 11,000 rpm. And yet you remain completely calm, thanks­ to a highly practical design, outstanding safety features and a chassis that is a marvel of precision engineering. If you want to be the best, there's no room for half measures.

The designers of the BMW K 1300 S were very clear about their aims: even more power, even more performance. The result is a machine that combines the excitement of a track bike with the practical features needed for long-distance riding on the road, such as the famous BMW Motorrad Duolever and BMW Motorrad ABS.

The K 1300 S is also available with ESA II Electronic Suspension Adjustment as an option, allowing you to modify the suspension set-up depending on the load you are carrying.

The BMW K1300S: supreme power with the sportiest of understatement. Why not try it out right away!

The 2013 the BMW K 1300 S is available in the following new paint finish:

•Sapphire black metallic/Dark graphite metallic. The paint finish Magma red/Sapphire black metallic is no longer available.
