Of the two, we like the K1300R, though we do think it'll be even more awesome with the six-cylinder engine from the K1600GT. BMW, please build the K1600R for next year!

BMW have announced the 2013 K1300R and K1300S, which will be available in showrooms from August this year. The new K1300S gets a new sapphire black metallic/dark graphite metallic paintjob, while the K1300R will be available in racing red/sapphire black metallic and sapphire black metallic/black satin gloss paint finishes. ABS and sports wheels (previously available as an optional extra) are now standard.

A ‘Dynamic package’ is available for the 2013 K1300R, which includes heated grips, on-board trip computer, LED turn indicators, Sport windshield and electronic suspension adjustment (ESA II). Otherwise, both the BMW K1300R and K1300S remain unchanged for 2013, with the same 1293cc inline-four that produces 175 horsepower and 140Nm of torque, Duolever front suspension, Paralever rear suspension, CAN-bus electronics and optional stability control system.

Of the two, we like the K1300R better – it still looks awesome, even though we do think it’ll be even better with the K1600GT’s six-cylinder 1600cc engine. For 2014, we hope BMW will build the K1600R (with a turbocharger or a supercharger, perhaps? Heh heh!)
