The BMW K1300R is a naked motorcycle launched at the end of 2008 with production ending in 2015. The K1300R continues to be the most powerful naked motorcycle BMW has ever produced, despite the model line being discontinued and replaced with the super bike derived S1000R. When launched, it replaced the K1200R as BMW's flagship urban motorcycle. The K1300R produces 173 hp (129 kW) @ 9,250 rpm from its 1,293 cc Inline-four engine with torque of 140 N·m (100 lbf·ft) @ 8,250 rpm. The engine was subtly modified by British company Ricardo plc. It has an exhaust butterfly flap to boost torque and improve exhaust note. The K1300R features BMW's optional ESA-II electronic suspension adjustment. The bike also has a conventional indicator switch instead of the usual BMW three button configuration.
The K1300R is considered a muscle bike, a slang term for naked or standard motorcycles that put an emphasis on high power output and fast acceleration. It's close gearing and exceptionally broad power delivery provide the drive output power necessary to accelerate quickly, while its long wheel base and low and canted mounted engine help the motorcycle plant the power without unintentional power wheelies. In tests carried out by Bike Magazine in the UK, its 2.81 second 0–100 km/h (0–62 mph) time made it the fastest accelerating naked motorcycle, beating its next closest competitor, the Suzuki B-King, by one tenth of a second.
