2009 BMW K1300R As a continuation of the generation of the BMW K1200 marketed in 2004, BMW re-release of two variants of the BMW K1300 BMW K1300R and K1300S. The difference, which is coded S equipped with a fairing while those ending in the letter R in the category naked bike or motorcycle without a fairing. Some of the fixes from previous generations try to offer the BMW though physically there is not much changed from its predecessor’s generation. At first glance it seemed there was no physical changes occur even though here and there there are parts that have small changes, such as muffler design. But overall it was not a major consideration physical BMW this time. BMW K1300R numerous improvements that make it more ‘balanced’ than the previous generation.

Initially the engine capacity is expandable up to 1.293cc 1.157cc. Auto-generated power this engine was increased from 138bhp to 173bhp. Perhaps, this new version is able to reach a maximum speed of 155 mph, or about 250km / j. That’s if you have enough guts to menggebernya until it reaches the maximum point.
BMW has worked with a company called Ricardo to design the engine of the BMW K1300R. The company is also responsible for the manufacture of gearboxes Bugatti Veyron. The result, a four-cylinder engine that moves more smoothly while carrying the power and incredible torque. But of course a reliable machine there would be no meaning without a chassis that also qualified. BMW managed to cut about 1kg of weight of the previous generation by applying an aluminum frame instead of steel that was used.

As in BMW K1200, power from the engine is channeled to the rear wheels using the axle. This makes the treatment as well as the cost needed to be reduced when compared with the chain. Vibration problems and high oil consumption apparently also considered by BMW and the sector has also been fixed in version ini.Yang slightly awkward fact is that she became more wheelbase 0.2 inch. BMW K1200 is a weakness on the side of the control point due to gravity and distance between the wheels are too far away. This means that when BMW decided to increase the distance between the front wheels and rear wheels of the weaknesses in the BMW K1200 will get worse. Unless BMW is preparing for ‘secret weapon’ other.
