2009 BMW K1300R
MSRP $16,850

The new K 1300 R now has 173hp at 9,250rpm and a wet weight of 535.7 lbs is sure to prove a hoot to ride. Maximum torque arrives 1,000rpm earlier and peaks at 130 lb-ft. Styling, there is a new fairing and compact mudguard are aimed at softening the lines somewhat while contrasting with the angular radiator surrounds and intakes. An improved version of the long running Duolever front end looks after the bumps up front with stiffer springs and damping and a new lower longitudinal arm for better roadholding.
