Background — The BMW K1300S

BMW updates to the K 1200 series at the Intermot show in Germany. sent us 85 pages (!) of information the BMW K 1300 S, BMW K 1300 GT and BMW K 1300 R, even a little S 1000 RR in for good measure.

This information means that BMW is on this as a major release. we can’t help but wonder if is a case of too much, too late?

the global economic meltdown of worldwide extreme fuel and the difficult loan situation in countries, a $20k bike a 1300 cc engine may not be the best Meanwhile, at least in North dealers are completely sold out of fuel-efficient 125 cc to 500 cc motorcycles for the first in decades, due to the new riders coming and high fuel prices buyers to look for MPG rather HP.

In any case, the production schedule for the new K series was probably set several ago, so there isn’t that BMW can do about it. And 1300 cc be quite a kick. may as well go in flames as the world comes to an

Here is an edited version of information on the revised K 1300 S; follow up with the rest of the new K series as soon as we can wade the rest of the 85-page press covering these new models.


The New BMW K 1300 Series

The significantly and upgraded successor to the BMW K 1200 S is celebrating its world debut at the INTERMOT motorcycle show: the new K S, the most powerful and fastest BMW the has ever


As a milestone in the BMW Encounter World and with output of 129 kW (175 hp) combined overall weight of 254 kg (560 lb) fuel, this truly motorcycle offers the utmost in performance and sporting riding Launching this new model, largest and most successful manufacturer is once again its leadership in the topmost class of high-performance machines.

Conceived as a sports machine, the K 1300 S has not maintained, but in many areas enhanced the qualities of its predecessor. As a this new high-performer combines and innovative technology of the highest with outstanding all-round and safety.

On the road this means greater riding precision and even more dynamic and performance, and, at the same the superior safety and ease of in all situations so typical of a BMW.

its predecessor, the K 1300 S does not any compromises, but rather brings even more consistently before all the virtues of the most motorcycle in the K-Series: sporting and performance combined with comfort, playful and easy

This is also enhanced absolute riding stability, top performance in conjunction with everyday riding qualities, an more slender and sporting with optimized protection wind and weather, plus ergonomics.

Taking up a great of BMW Motorrad, the new K 1300 S stands out qualities typical of BMW such as a service life, ease of optimum emission management by of a fully controlled three-way converter as well as maximum safety when applying the ensured through the most brake system currently in the market: BMW Motorrad Integral ABS as standard.

As in the past, BMW, the K 1300 S, offers the only motorcycle in this segment a maintenance-free drive shaft.

innovative top-end technology, riding qualities, an even dynamic look and performance to an unprecedented standard, the K 1300 S renders the BMW Sports Encounter clearly maintaining BMW’s leadership in the upper sports

The main objective in developing the new K S was to create an even more motorcycle with enhanced qualities ensured by an even powerful and harmonious torque and a higher standard of riding

Increasing engine capacity to cc while maintaining maximum speed of 11,000 rpm ultimately led to a improvement of performance, power and In its fundamental qualities, the K 1300 S is on the proven drivetrain configuration and arrangement of its predecessor, using the advantage of a low centre of gravity possible by the extreme angle of the bank tilted 55° to the front and very low arrangement of the engine.

At the time the new K 1300 S benefits the very slender engine allowing a very low angle in for a truly sporting and dynamic of riding.

In its suspension and running the new K 1300 S – by far the lightest 1,300-cc in this segment at 228 kg/503 lb dry – applies a successful concept with proven modules and One example in this context is the V-shaped radiator interacting the wheel supports to provide an configuration of the frame above the head and, as a result, the overall width of the machine.

And with the frame profiles smoothly at the rear, the K 1300 S the driver to hold his knees together, ensuring optimum with the motorcycle under all The active, dynamic and forward-looking position is tailored fully to the but nevertheless allows a relaxed and style of motorcycling at all times.

So being unusually dynamic and the K 1300 S is almost playful and very safe in its behavior, stress-free riding pleasure in sporting style. Innovations on the gear and electronics. The upgraded Duolever suspension makes a contribution to the outstanding riding of the K 1300 S.

The newly developed, longitudinal arm now made of a forged alloy ensures an even sensitive and transparent response, enhancing the leadership of BMW Motorrad in the of suspension technology.

The spring/damper is firmer than before in the interest of even better The K 1300 S is available with Electronic Suspension Adjustment II) as an option, a further development and of the original ESA suspension introduced for the time in series production on the K S.

Applying the most advanced technology, the progressive on-board allows a wide range of and facilitates the diagnostic procedures required by intelligently connecting the electrical and electronic systems.

Second-Generation, 1300 cc Powerplant

The generation of BMW Motorrad’s four-cylinder units has been upgraded and in the interest of even more and performance, extra torque, and riding dynamics.

Displacement of the inline power unit in the K S is up by 136 cc from 1,157 cc to 1,293 cc. output is 129 kW (175 hp) at 9,250 maximum torque of 140 Newton-meters or 103 comes at 8,250 rpm.

In figures, this is an increase in output by 6 kW (8 hp) and an increase in peak by 10 Newton-meters (7.4 lb-ft). the former K 1200 S had to be revved up to rpm to develop its maximum output, the unit of the new K 1300 S develops its power at a relatively low 9,250

A further significant advantage is more than 70 per cent of the maximum torque is available just 3,000 rpm, 10 Newton-meters or 7.4 lb-ft more available all the way from 2,000–8,000 rpm the K 1200 S.

The objective in developing the new was obviously to enhance the already standard of riding dynamics and characteristics through power and easy to handle at all times. And 82.8 kilos/182.6 (K 1200 S: kilos/179.3, in each case the clutch, gearbox and oil), the power unit of the K 1300 S one of the lightest engines of its size in the

Like the previous model, the K S benefits above all from its conceived overall configuration as as the space-saving arrangement of ancillary and the integrated gearbox. In all, makes the entire drivetrain compact, with ideal of all masses in the middle of the machine.

And as on the K S, the overall width of the power measured on the level of the crankshaft, is 430 or 16.9. The perfect interaction of solutions and optimum integration of the and running gear already on the K 1200 S is fully retained on the K S.

Gearbox and — The BMW Gearshift Assistant

The has been upgraded and modified for the new K S, with the shift forks, the of the dog-shift units and the geometry of the themselves being optimized in the The gears are now contoured

differently at the and the shift forks come a three-point rest replacing the two-point base.

To reduce the hollow shift cylinder is of high-strength aluminum alloy and in anti-friction bearings. The shift are made of steel and are lubricated by oil.

To reduce the length of the the two gearbox shafts are positioned one another. The gears themselves are in configuration benefiting not only the of efficiency but also the overall of the gearbox.

The K 1300 S features a new lever with an ergonomically pivot point. Together the likewise new anti-friction bearing for the lever this ensures an more precise and faster than before. At the same gearshift travel is even and more dynamic.

For the first in the history of large-scale motorcycle by BMW and, indeed, for the first in series production worldwide, the of the K 1300 S is able to shift up the help of the optional HP Gearshift without operating the clutch accordingly, without the slightest of traction and pulling force.

To this operation the ignition and supply are interrupted for fractions of a in the shift process. The HP Gearshift introduced for the first time on the HP2 comes together with the footrests available as special Shaft drive to the rear – optimized and quite unique in the segment.
