BMW K1300S, R and GT expected in 2009


These are, supposedly, the first official pics of the 2009 K1300R, K1300S and K1300GT. More pics and details here

According to a report on Solomoto, BMW are working on the next iteration of the K1200S – the K1300S. BMW are expected to show the new K1300S alongside the S1000RR superbike, at the INTERMOT and/or the EICMA show later this year. The company is also likely to unveil the K1300R and K1300GT variants at the same time.

The K1300S will be fitted with a new 1300cc inline-four, which is expected to produce around 180 horsepower. The bike will keep the Duolever front suspension and shaft-drive/single-sided swingarm from the K1200S, but the suspension is likely to be much more refined, and will offer more adjustability.

In terms of styling, we wouldn’t expect anything radical – an evolution of the K1200S lines seems more likely. The same would be true for the K1300R, K1300R Sport and K1300GT, all of which will use the new 1300cc engine and an evolution of their respective styling. And, yes, BMW are also expected to show the new F800R at the INTERMOT/EICMA shows.
