K1300rs

What is this that I have read on the internet that BMW is soon coming out with a new K1300RS.
Any truth in it.

Can you send along the URL? There is the new K1200R Sport that according to my dealer the dealers in this state are not ordering for floor stock because of the slow move of the K1200R.

R-S not being ordered?

Damn, I am dying to see one in the flesh...probably won't be able to swing it, but I really really like the pics I've seen, and with the fairing (and an aftermarket larger windscreen) it would not only be half the price to insure as a K1200S, it's cheaper, and the exposed engine goodies, plus the functional half fairing makes it, in my mind, one badass bike.

I still don't know how BMW got away with last year's K1200R "You don't need a hibachi to cook Japanese" ad...

lol

The K1300RS rumors were around just prior to the release of the K1200S as a 2005 model. It was conjecture based upon some spy photos of the K1200S and started in early 2004 on the Pelican Parts website.

My guess is that the K-Sport will not be any cheaper insurance wise than the R is. Just adding the fairing will not throw it into a different rating class. Typically insurance companies deal with HP/weight ratios for ratings. That's not to say I can't wish cheaper rates for you, but I doubt it will occur. Dick

Yo, Dick

Did I mis-type?

The K1200S is twice as expensive for me to insure as the K1200R-sport

if I typed otherwise, chalk it up to another dumbass pete-ism

Plano has 1 on the floor. When I talked to Bryan at Ft Worth, he had 5.

Actually, HP and weight ratios have very little to do with insurance rates. It has to do with the number of payouts per model. It is not uncommon to see a new model be underestimated, and then you will see a significant increase the second year. Also, insurance companies are regulated by the state, so how premiums are calcuated vary as often as there are different motorcycles.

It happened with the Yamaha FZ1. It was about half of the R1, but by the second and third year, many insurance companies had the FZ1 listed nearly as expensive as the R1.
