2016 BMW K 1300 S

The BMW K 1300 S is a true hyperbike with 175 horsepower (claimed) and a long wheelbase for optimum stability at the high speeds this motorcycle is capable of attaining.

The ace in the hole for the K 1300 S is a brutal 103 ft/lbs of torque available at just 8250 rpm, giving the bike blistering real-world acceleration, and standard ABS to help the rider stay in control when returning from warp speed.

A Motosport edition feature traction control, electronic suspension adjustment, a quickshift system, and tire pressure monitors, among other upgrades. Shown is an older model with the same colors, but different graphics.
