2014 BMW K1300S Review

2014 BMW K1300S on Totalmotorcycle.com

DYNAMIC PERFORMANCE, ELEGANCE, AND SHEER POWER.

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 hp that it take the heat out of many a 200 hp 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: 103 ft-lb of torque 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 gear shift assistant, pure racing in view with the 2D HP dashboard.

The BMW K 1300 S: supreme power with the sportiest of understatement. Why not try it out right away!

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.

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.
