Brand new BMW K 1300 S startup, walkaround and exhaust sound
This is the 2010 brand new 2010 BMW K 1300 S which I took for a weekend. The bike was just delivered to one of the BMW dealers in Warsaw and someone had to ride the first 1000 kilometers. Of course I agreed to do that. It was a pleasure, even though I could rev the bike only to 7000 rpm. Honestly, after my DL 1000 there was no need to use this range of rpm. 2000-6000 is certainly enough. The bike is brilliant, the engine is smooth and powerful... Having 175hp it was a rocket.
This particular one had everything you can get from the factory - traction control (ASC), Electronic Suspension Adjustment (ESA II) and so on.
To me bike was too sporty and uncomfortable. Well, after my V-Strom anything other than the RT or GoldWing would be, I suppose.
Brakes - this is where BMW crushes the competition. All K and R (and S of course) have unbelievably effective semi-integrated brakes.
I will probably take this bike for a ride again, then I'll record something more with better quality camera.
