Description

It may look largely the same as the outgoing model but the latest version of BMW's naked K1300R has had a host of small changes that add up to a much better bike all-round. With a claimed 173bhp and some seriously clever optional electronically-adjustable suspension. traction control and a long list of options to choose from. BMW has built a bike that almost defies naked bike logic. And don't forget the new K-series range now has proper indicators rather than the confusing triple switches of old. The motor is the biggest single area of improvement over the previous model. Engineering development was handed over to the spanner magicians at Ricardo – the same firm that designed the gearbox for the 1000bhp Bugatti Veyron hypercar. This is the first time BMW has worked with Ricardo on one of its bikes. The result is a claimed 173bhp from an increased 1293cc four-cylinder motor that is much smoother with bundles of power and torque. It's one of the best big-capacity motors on the road today combining lovely refinement with a racing engine snarl when pushed. And yes. it's very. very. very fast. The only question is how long you can hang on.  The BMW K13000R is actually a little easier to chuck around than the faired BMW K1300S model thanks to wider. taller handlebars which give loads of leverage over the fairly substantial weight of the bike. Use of aluminium rather than steel on the Duolever front suspension has taken 1kg off the unsprung weight and this has added a bit of feel to the slightly numb handling feedback on the outgoing model. The ESA II system and ASC traction control are brilliant and well worth the cash. Spec up a BMW K1300R with all of the options BMW has to offer and it's going to be an expensive machine. There are some must-haves though and the ESA II at £617 is one of them as it offers a great deal of adjustment and takes the guesswork out of suspension adjustment. ABS is another one. After that there are some lovely choices. Heated grips. onboard computer. There are also carbon bits. mini-indicators and crash bungs as standard on the R. Most are worth a look although we would give the quick shifter a miss as although it works just fine. it seems out of place on a bike like this
Naked. 15300 miles. Lava Orange Metallic. Gear Shift Assistant. Heated Handlebar Grips. On-Board Computer. Gear Shift Assistant. ABS. ESA II System. ASC. This bike looks fast stood still but it is beautifully balanced and crafted for the ultimate ride. 173 bhp. You will have endless amounts of fun with machine.  Kept in a garage. This is a rare bike and a real pleasure to ride. first reg 15/03/09Full BMW Service historyService intervals. running in check 820 miles 15/04/09
