Re: New K1300S replacement is in development!

Im looking to get a new bike and this thread has helped answer question I've had and create some.
One thing I do know is I do a lot of night riding and one night a k1300s passed me and put my light to shame. A good light is a must for a touring bike.

Sure wish Progressive insurance thought the way you do. They classify the K as a sport bike. My premiums would be much lower. My personal liability carrier forces me to carry coverage that exceeds the maximum offered by others.

Have you tried McGraw/Pacific Specialty Ins.? they have always been the cheapest to be found for me in So California. My 06 K1200R cost me $100.00 for the year(liability only). I've found that after a bike is 5 years or older 'Full Coverage' is illogical, as well as cost prohibitive.

1. We're talking two different things.

Non Japanese style indicator switch gear ( return to the great original BMW switch gear)
Cruise control
LED head lights
Better gear box
Shouldn't need to be above 1300cc as the bike is a rocket as is.
I love the styling and am a bit sad to see the mighty K S moving on. Ill keep my 1200S as a display in my lounge room as its just such a beautiful machine.
Best wishes fellas.

Well this thread is certainly generating some good feedback for BMW if they care to listen.

I certainly don't want an S1000F/Kawasaki 1000SX type of bike. One of my mates has the Kawasaki and I've ridden it. It's a good bike with a silky smooth engine but it's too small to offer the type of comfort and weather protection that I want from a bike on which I often do big mileage days.

Let the debate continue!

If BMW read this that'll have probably wet e'm selve's laughing cruise control and radio's to less weight and a slipper clutch is it any wonder their are so few bikes in this corner of the market.

Funny thing about perspective. This is my first beemer so it seems a no brainer to have the indicators on one switch. The time me and my buddy switched bikes, took me a bit to figure out the directionals while riding down the road on his K75 that also felt like everything was broken compared to my KS.

Yep, most people who havent ridden a BMW over 5 years old wouldnt know the benifits of the other system. It just works for me, same as Harley switch gear is easier to use in my experience.
Best wishes mate.

When I made the transition from Japanese bikes to my K75S in 1988 it took a little while to get used to the different BMW switch gear logic. But once the transition was made, the BMW switch gear became easy and intuitive. Turn signals, canceling, and horn were all accomplished with barely moving your thumbs (which rested in the curve of the four switches). The high/low/flash of the headlight was accomplished by moving your left thumb above the curve to press on the curved rocker switch. Operation was accomplished by moving your thumbs in a small up and down arc, and all the time your fingers never really moved on the hand grips. The older switch gear also feels more substantial than the new switch gear (I've never had a failure in the older switch gear). And to me the older turn signal switches helped reinforce countersteering (push right, go right).

All in all, a far superior system, but I realized it's long gone now.

Not sure what the F800ST has, but 60's switch gear is significantly different from 80's/90's switch gear, mainly in the lack of ergonomic design.

Re: New K1300S replacement is in development!

Can`t say I have`nt had switch gear failure on the KS cos I have but I think when travelling along at a reasonable pace the right hand is busy enough with the throttle and front brake without fiddling with switches.
I know HD put indicator switches on either side of the bars because I`ve owned a few over years and I`m still waiting to find out what this brand does well.

Well, the only time your right THUMB is doing anything with the earlier (80's/90's) BMW switch gear is when you want to signal for a right turn or a right lane change, or you want to cancel the turn signal after a turn or lane change. Presumably your right hand is not too busy with the throttle and front brakes during that brief moment. Mine never are.

I love my 2013 K1300S. I sure hope that BMW keeps a machine in this category. It's the Corvette. The Arleigh Burke Class Destroyer. The F-111 with the wings all the way back, on the deck, afterburners lit. Can't touch it.

F800 has a switch on the left to turn the left indicator on, a switch on the right to turn on the right indicator and another switch on the right to turn both indicators off. Three switches to perform the same function as one on the K bikes could be a great idea but I`m not seeing it.

I liked that system, but the new switchgear works just as well.

True. They should have used their inventory of bad switches by now.

Less thumb movement, and you move your thumbs only in a short up-and-down arc. Not back-and-forth and in-and-out. Very ergonomic. I notice the difference every time every time I switch (no pun intended) between my R1100RS and my K1300S. The R1100RS is far superior in this regard.

Re: New K1300S replacement is in development!

Hello... one of my 1st posts here as a relatively new K13R owner (previously had F800Rs/R1150GS/R1100GS/F650s).

An alternative to a larger tank (which I would like on the R) is improved fuel economy. Now of course, the 1300 isn't built for economy, but it does seem to be the way manufacturers are turning & if they can give better fuel economy without affecting power (or maybe even improving it) who here would complain? (did they do that when they changed from 1200 to 1300cc?)

Other than that...

Less options on the menu button, more permanently displayed. I haven't counted how many presses it takes to cycle through all of the display but it's enough to be distracting (with TPM) when you want to know something. Permanent clock & tank range would be good. I don't actually NEED to know my average fuel economy or speed on the go & even the TPM could just warn me when things change rather than as a permanent menu option. If you're looking at these you're not looking at the road which is where your attention should be.

On the subject of fuel, a fuel light that comes on a bit later... I'm getting 160 off a tank & riding around with a warning light for 25% of that. No vehicle should have a warning light on it for 1 in every 4 miles!... it just looks bad.

An ambient temperature sensor which is good for more than the 1st 2 mins after which the engine sends it sky high.

An accurate speedometer... I wondered why I had queues of traffic following me through the 30's... discovered it was over 10% out at that speed!

... & as said, all the latest electronics as far as TC, suspension, & ABS are concerned.

Great bike, but it's not perfect... yet!

Re: New K1300S replacement is in development!

Hi Tim, welcome to the I-BMW family and the K13R adorers

Quote:
Less options on the menu button, more permanently displayed. I haven't counted how many presses it takes to cycle through all of the display but it's enough to be distracting (with TPM) when you want to know something. Permanent clock & tank range would be good. I don't actually NEED to know my average fuel economy or speed on the go & even the TPM could just warn me when things change rather than as a permanent menu option.
You will know after time you have 6 strokes and can change without see it, perhaps would be better a large display but...

Quote:
An ambient temperature sensor which is good for more than the 1st 2 mins after which the engine sends it sky high.
Perhaps it has some troubles, usually when I ride I feel with my body some change of temperature and the display reflects that change in a couple of seconds. I had issues with the temp sensor in my first KR, sometimes stalled in a certain value.

An accurate speedometer... I wondered why I had queues of traffic following me through the 30's... discovered it was over 10% out at that speed!

Always you can find something wrong but I'm sure can live with it. I still love her ....

It reflects changes but they're quite a bit out... when it's 1st thing in the morning & 4 mins into my ride it's 4 deg warmer than it was in my garage (6 degrees warmer than it read 2 mins into my ride) you know there's something wrong. Hopefully it'll be a bit less prone to this at near freezing temperatures (I ride all year round).

PS is that a mole or where you bit her?... & you should try some of that lipstick that stays on your lips!

(did they do that when they changed from 1200 to 1300cc?)

My K1300S routinely gets 45-48 mpg at "cruising" speed (say 75-80 mph). I understand that fuel economy was improved over the K1200S. But that gets me about 200 miles with 0.5 gallons left in the tank. Another 0.5-1.0 gallons would give the K1300S a good range of 225-250 miles before the 0.5 gallon level.

My light comes on when about 45 miles left to go before I get to the 0.5 gallon level. That gives me about one gallon to find a gas station. Sometimes I need that gallon to find an appropriate station. I'm good with the current warning light level.

My temperature gauge always seems to be accurate. It never goes "sky high" relative to ambient temperature.

Re: New K1300S replacement is in development!

Yep... I'd probably get better milage on longer runs but this bike is a workhorse... a fun workhorse but it definitely does more commuting miles than anything else & my commute is only 20 miles... & though my ambient temperature would beg to differ, the bike is still warming up for at least the 1st 10 of those so isn't running at its most efficient. So I'm filling up more than once a week... which in itself is a PITA until I do the filler mod... which should give me more tank range... in fact add that to the list... a 19 litre tank that you can actually reasonably be expected to fit 19 litres of fuel in without modifying the filler.

In commuter-style riding, my K1300S gets about 42 mpg. The only time it drops below 40 mpg (and then only to 38 mpg or so) is on brisk, triple-digit, Sunday-morning rides.

Yep... pretty much what I'm getting... Just done the filler neck mod so I'll see what I can get in the tank next fill up & how much extra that gives me.

Loose a bit of weight - 20 to 30 lbs would be good.

The mirrors are fine from my perspective.

I agree can't see any need to digitally display tyre pressures or engine temp when with a press of a button both are on the screen. Definitely lose 20 kg and install factory cruise control. The mirrors are the best I have ever experienced on a sport/touring bike-I seriously love my K13S. It would be a tragedy if BMW discontinue the K13 platform.

Re: New K1300S replacement is in development!

Apart from the dynamics of the bike, to me it still looks as sexy as it did to me in 2004. It just looks right standing still. Thats why ill keep my grey 05 when I update. But if the replacement bike is too arm chair or too racer, looks like a current K1300S would be the replacement. Im on my 7th BM, and just wouldn't change for another brand.
Best wishes fellas.

Ken

Re: New K1300S replacement is in development!

New K13S or 14S, in inline 4 ? I don't think so.
In "sports tourer" category they already have K16GT and with new 1000cc engine they will cater for riders interested in lighter, sportier bikes. 16GT is very fast, for all means and purposes, just as fast with competent rider. Engine is a gem.
Liter engine from S1000RR is also gorgeous. Engine in 13S still has vibrations, they used to stall, no electronic throttle bodies, it is very old in concept and I don't see a reason why BMW should push development. In sales terms, only slow movers are F800GT and K1300S, everything else is selling well.

So, all in all, I don't see why BMW will bother with Hayabusa killer.

Re: New K1300S replacement is in development!

Why??? IMHO, Simply because they can. I know I've red before that BMW does not rely on their Motorrad division for big profits. However, they do use Motorrad to flex their technology and R&D prowess in the industry. So in this case... Why wouldn't they produce a BUSA or ZX-14 killer when it comes to power. Very interested to see what's next. There is still a demand for Hyper sport touring bikes.

Interesting statement Honda don't have one,Yamaha never have,Triumph scrapped their version,Suzuki and Kawasaki plod on with the same old,is there a demand? as in many thousands,just look at the thread running about speeding or not as the case maybe the days of the hyper bike is now niche at best.

Manafacturing bikes is about selling units and lots of them,BMW have no problem bringing out a model and chopping it off within 12 months if it doesn't sell ranging from the C200 to the R1200s and my K1200r Sport so if BM do bring one out you boys better start buying it in the many thousands or it will be quickly gone maybe worth a body revamp like the ZZ just to keep the production line chugging along.

Re: New K1300S replacement is in development!

I certainly agree with many of your points, Chris. However, most of the companies that you mentioned don't have a giant auto manufacturer behind them whose cars are heavily sought after world-wide. Motorrad is a flea on their financial Bum; a cool project for BMW to peacock around. Respectfully, that's just how I see it. It cracks me up to this day how people see a BMW bike here in the States that's not an S1000RR or a GS and they are simply bewildered because they didn't know more models existed. Have they been in a closet???? Maybe.. Has BMW put a lot of money into advertising here??? certainly not.. I can almost say this with certainty.. If BMW comes out with a K1400S or a tweaked K1300s that is well designed and can handle a ZX14 or Busa, people will jump on it because the S1000RR has god-like super-bike status on the streets right now. A shallow reason, but this is a country where displacement rules many minds. Lol!

I know. It is like the don't want to sell them. They never last long on the dealer floor if they can get them. A back cover MC magazine add once and a while would sell plenty of them. As mentioned by others, there is a need for big, miles covering, sport touring bikes.

If the only change is plastic, I see no big move to buy one of these. It needs serious multiple up dates to match the new world.

Very reason I got the 2014, I feared that was the last year. And for an all rounder, the k1300s seemed perfect. It's a sporty tourer. It's the heaviest of my bikes and I shy away from it at times, but every time I ride it, I fall in love with it even more. Weird.

First season on my 1300s and loving it so far... I would love some factory cruise control but I am sure to find an aftermarket that will work.

Mike, the Kaoko and Throttlemeisters are throttle locks that guys have used and like. A cheaper alternative, until you decide, is the $10 Throttle Rocker.

The electronic ones are prohibitively expensive, IMO. Check Pirate's Lair to see some of these.

Same with BMW Motorcycle magazine. It is so full of GS and GT stories, but almost never mentions the S bike. Very disapointing.

Re: New K1300S replacement is in development!

Interesting..... Was talking with Jim today who owns a K1300R, and I have been harassing him to buy a 55litre BMW Softbag 2 for the 2015 March ride. The guys at his BMW dealer in Sydney said that the stock they have now (k1300r and K1300s bags) would not be replaced as new bags would be coming out next year......
.....so.... Different style.... Different mounts.... Different bike?...... Very interesting......
Might ring and quiz them myself in the next few days.

Cheers

BM redesign the 55l bag every few years I was told exactly the same when I bought mine which must be 3 years ago and that was the second version.

Ok... My bag is the last version, not the current, because I got it second hand, so that makes sense.

Re: New K1300S replacement is in development!

i would have seriously considered buying another K1300S if BMW had upgraded the bike with better electronics, redesigned fairing, cruise control and a bump in HP. i don't care about beating a busa or zx1400 but for me my K1600GT is just a tad to heavy and the s1000rr is just a tad to small but the 1300 fits me perfectly. Nothing changed between my 2009 K1300s and a 2014 K1300s except the color choices. My 2009 only had 22000 miles so I decided to go with the 1600GT since I wanted something different.
