Enough raw power to shock…

With enough raw power to shock even the most seasoned adrenaline junky, the K 1200 S hurls you from a dead stop to sixty mph in just 2.8 seconds. Once you’re over the whiplash, you’ll keep climbing, topping out at speeds that run neck-and-neck with the fastest production motorcycles in the world. Add ABS brakes and a few other creative comforts, and the sport bike world has a whole new leader.
