Lean into performance in its purest form: BMW sportbikes. They’re in a class by themselves. Designed for the track, every piece of these motorcycles is purpose-built for performance at the highest level. Seemingly limitless power and acceleration is matched perfectly with razor-like handling and feel. It all makes for a bike that gives you the confidence to comfortably push your limits, fully in control during a day at the track or a rainy ride home.

K 1300 S


K 1300 S

The interceptor. The athlete.

The R 1300 S is both aerodynamic and avant-garde. Do you know of another sporty bike with this profile? A bike that develops such pulling power with 175 hp that it takes the heat out of many 200-hp bikes? But a bike you can still take out on a quick trip simply because it has great everyday suitability? The R 1300 S is a technological treat with everyday power you don’t see every day.
