Sleek and powerful, the BMW K 1300 S’s inline-four cylinder motor outputs a considerable 175 horsepower (claimed).
BMW’s superb quick- shifter now aids the six-speed gearbox, and the second-generation electronically adjustable (on-the-fly) suspension makes a noticeable difference in varying road conditions.
New this year is an optional HP Package that includes lots of carbon detailing, plus an Akrapovic muffler. Another version that will be available is the Dynamics Package with HP gearshift assistant.
