Even at first glance the K 1300 S "Motorsport" special model looks like an athlete raring to go. In the paint finish Black Storm metallic and Light White non-metallic with the accentuation colour Lupin Blue metallic it instantly conveys the character of a power bike. The overall look is rounded off with a tinted wind shield.
And the "Motorsport" special model has a whole lot to offer in terms of detail, too: the HP footrest system gives the rider individual setting options and is extra narrow for greater banking freedom.
The hand-made Akrapovič silencer made of titanium produces a powerful sound as well as offering clear benefits in terms of weight. Its sporty light alloy forged wheels make the K 1300 S Motorsport even more agile.
And the engineers have made advances in the areas of comfort and safety, too: more efficient power transmission with Automatic Stability Control (ASC) provides increased riding safety. What is more, the electronic suspension with Dynamic ESA provides a uniquely secure ride feel: contact between road and tyres is tangibly improved by means of spring travel sensors.
If you're out and about on the "Motorsport" special model there's no longer any need to check tyre pressure manually: this is taken care of entirely by the automatic tyre pressure control system RDC.
And it's no longer necessary to use the clutch and release the accelerator when shifting up a gear quickly - thanks to the HP shift assistant.
