AC Schnitzer K1300S
AC Schnitzer tuned the BMW K1300S to make the bike
as different and unique than the standard version. The modification from AC
Schnitzer includes a revised riding position. The riders are closer to the
handlebars. The handlebars have been pulled back. To adapt the new riding
position, the BMW K1300S is equipped with lower arms and larger mirrors for
better visibility. The wheels are now eight kilos lighter than the standard
version. Equipped with a stealth muffler, the bike is faster and at the same
time also improved fueling and injection programmes.
Like the K 1200 S, the focus of the K 1300 S lies on both performance and
suitability for everyday use. After the first extended test ride, the
development criteria were clear for the AC Schnitzer engineers: find a seating
position in which the body weight is not always supported by the lower arms,
while still retaining sporting attributes. This seating position was achieved
with the new Superbike handlebar conversion, which brings the handlebars around
7 cm higher and closer to the rider.
The Superbike handle bar conversion, ensures better machine control and hence
Better rearward visibility is achieved with the AC Schnitzer wide view mirrors -
fully approved - which sit unobtrusively below the mirror base. The AC Schnitzer
brake and clutch levers are also fully approved: these can be adjusted
individually and are also available for most other BMW machines.
The acoustic signals are provided by the AC Schnitzer STEALTH silencer with EC
approval, which with its motorsport provenance further emphasises the sporting
lines of the K 1300 S. The silencer is fitted with a removable DB killer and can
be provided complete with catalytic converter.
Already known from the 1200 Boxer models, the AC Schnitzer cardan crash pad is
now also available for the K series. A low price, but highly effective in the
event of a "faller".
