BMW’s K-series debuted in the early 80s with the K100, a huge departure from the boxer-powered creations that the company had been using for decades. The new bikes were affectionately known as the “flying bricks” to represent the general shape of the longitudinal inline motors. It would take until 2014 for BMW to fall in line with their Japanese competition and go with an inline four-cylinder engine laid across the frame. It competed against the Honda Blackbird and Suzuki Hayabusa when it came to horsepower and speed, but offered much more in creature comfort for riders dedicated to eating up miles at pace – traction control, ABS, luggage, heated grips, and more.

The model was updated to the K1300S in 2008 with a minor restyle, improved fueling, new clutch and transmission, an optional quickshifter, updated electronic suspension adjustment, and amusingly, a redesigned turn signal switch that ditched the long-standing “one per side” setup.

If you wanted to go fast on a race track, BMW was glad to sell you a S1000RR. But if you wanted to fast in the real world, the K1300S was your ticket. As noted in this RoadCarver review, “the BMW K1300S generates as much torque at 4,000 rpm as the BMW S1000RR makes at 11,000 rpm.” Specifically, the updated K-bike motor pushed a healthy 175 horsepower at 9,250 rpm and 103 lb-ft at 8,250 rpm through a shaft final drive.

While the base bike was impressive, BMW took it up a notch with a special model called the Motorsport. The most obvious change was the livery, which combines Black Storm Metallic, Light White, Lupine Blue metallic, and Racing Red.

Other Motorsport features included:
BMW HP forged alloy wheels.

BMW HP footpegs for rider (adjustable) and passenger.

Akrapovič exhaust.

Black bellypan.

Carbon fiber accents.
