Quick Review: 2012 BMW K 1300 S HPFebruary 29, 2012 by: Rituraj Mishra
Describing a powerful machine is easy and that is one of the reasons this is going to be a quickie. Since BMW K 1300 is no stranger, we would go straight to its 2012 version.
Fitted with an inline-four cylinder engine it goes on to provide a decent 175 hp. BMW’s superb quick-shifter is now supports the six-speed gearbox. Also the second-generation electronically adjustable suspension contributes in improved performance even in varying road conditions.
New to this range is an option of HP package that comes with Akrapovic muffler and some carbon detailing. Include an HP gearshift assistant and you have another optional pack called Dynamics pack.
A tad heavy at 560 pounds but stable with a wheelbase of 62.4 inches it does seem to be a good bet. Also it has a burning price of $15,555 for the standard piece, but with an impressive performance stats there is no grudge one can hold against this bike.
