An upgraded K1300S from BMW Motorrad arriving in 2015
October 16, 2014

Next year will play host to the arrival of an updated K1300S motorcycle from BMW Motorrad. The bike was officially unveiled a number of months ago along side some of the new updates that will come to the machine and how well it has improved since its predecessor. It was in 2009 that the K1300S was first launched by the firm and now marking five years later from 2015 the machine will be redesigned in order to help keep the product fresh and a top contender on the road. BMW are making the headlines in the motorcycle industry as of late with the new S1000RR and now with the announcement of the K1300S we see this model bring in some more attention for BMW Motorrad certainly.

 

What have BMW Motorrad done to the bike in regards to changes?

The overall body structure and design reminds us very much of the old Honda RC30 which was a key contender on the market when it was first launched. It shares that same wide body mass and the front end is angled in the same manner. Black,Blue and White is the paint scheme to come along with the K1300S which also is joined by red striping. In terms of what new changes you can expect to find in the K1300S for 2015, the mass manufacturer have revealed that the two wheeled machine will now receive an akrapovic exhaust, both lightweight HP wheels and HP footrests also which are for both the rider and a pillion. A 1293cc engine which puts out 175 horse power is a key feature and will therefore allow the bike to reach speeds of upto 165mph in total. As you can expect from BMW motorcycles too, the K1300S comes fitted with ABS as standard. A tinted windscreen and rear silencer are also key players this time around.

 

With a good sturdy engine, we see some competitors such as Triumph with the Speed Triple bringing in much competition for the updated K1300S in the future.

 

For what cost will the K1300S go on sale for?

The BMW brand have confirmed that the bike will go on sale for 19,950 in Euros which equals around the £15,000 area. Expect to see the bike make its presence felt next year. The EICMA motorcycle show comes your way from the 4th of next month so we do believe there is a possibility more may be announced about the bike then.
