Its been a while since i raided TriStar workshop to check on any new models they might have received and still in the boxes, so i decided to pass by today after lunch as i had a hunch that my dessert could be there.

And what a dessert it was, it strated with the K1300R then the K1300GT and finally the F800GS.

The K1300R is the bike i like the most, it got a slight face left which i did not like when i saw the photos, but after saying the beast in person i had to change my mind and develop a taste for the new look…the bike became more aggressive yet very modern and civilized it has the kind of looks that you won’t get fed up of, they had the new color it called Lava something…the color makes the bike looks like a hot busty babe in a sexy bikini.

The K is fully loaded with BMW technology, On board computer, electronic suspension, tire pressure censors, ABS breaks, anti skid system, heated grips, gear shift assistant and the list goes on…the anti skid and the gear shift assist makes the bike almost race ready, now i don’t know if the anti skid can be switched off..as i would like to try a burnout like this. 

The K1300GT comes with almost the same features of the K1300R plus the heated seat, it has the same engine of the K which makes it a comfy ride for long trips, especially for those of you that cross the border to KSA to eat مندي on weekends ;-) .

The F800GS is a cool looking bike for those who thinks the 1200GS is too big and 650GS is too small.

The bikes were being prepared to be sent to the showroom so am guessing they will be there tomorrow or the day after, its a long weekend so go take a look.

    You can’t beat the color combinations on both K1300R & the F800GS ,strilingly nice,some more detail pictures pls like the gear shift assist etc.tks

  • Chic

    The way the k1300r is written is very ugly, why didn’t they use something like what’s on the yellow bike, can that be changed ?

  • Chic

    Oh and what’s with the heated seat, why would you need a heated seat in Kuwait?
    I did not like any of them, Ducaties still have the best looks so far this year.

    JoJo,

    Nothing beats the feeling of a Ducati, BMWs are for old men and biker wana be’s.
    The whole purpose of riding a bike is to enjoy the savageness and primitivity of it, why do you think people are still riding HD despite their shitty breaks, loud and heavy vibrating engines?

    JoJo,

    The gear shift assist is a work around a major flow in the K series gear box, and instead of redesigning or fixing the gear BMW decided to add a power shifter as a work around the problem, if ur lucky the gear will break after the warranty have expired ;-) and it will definitely break i personally know 2 guys that had the gear box changed they were lucky their warranty was still valid.
    if u like BMWs sty away of K series and get a Boxer engine bmer, less power and a lot less headache.

    It’s been a while since Adrenaline posted any naked bike babes photos, seams he can’t find any, so he decided to post a naked bike instead ;-)

    Adrenaline do you have any BMW bike babes photos?

  • BadAz

    Why do you need anti skid, where is the fun in NOT smoking the rear tire?

  • Fridy

    Hamad,
    I don’t think the shift assistant is a power shifter, if it was why would they use the word assist?

    I’am googling that now, will post if find an answer.

  • ٩٩٩

    “Shift Assistant is for clutchless upshifts in high-performance riding” so its a Power Shifter, aka Quick Shifter

    BadAz,

  • lolo

    Am not an a pro biker, but these bikes are really huge.. shouldn’t a good bike be light and narrow?

  • JoJo

    lolo,

    Depends on what you want the bike for.There is a bike to cater for the right rider.

    The GS family consist of 4 bikes
    F650GS for ladies & short fellows
    F800GS for the next level
    R1200GS as a big on road/off road bike
    R1200GS Adventure for big fellow with serious around the world tourin with a range of 700 KM per fill-up

    JoJo,
    I know nothing could be compared to the 1200GS but which is more superior the GT or the Gold Wing?

  • JoJo

    This question will requier many pages to answer , but will try to be short.
    Micky,
    They are not compareable !! The Goldwing is made in the USA by Honda to cater for American long flat speed limiyed highways and in a way to compete with Harley. The GT is make by BMW in Germany for the German No Speed Limit Autobahns and twisty Alps and narrow inercity roads of europe,fuel effeciency,safety ( 8th generation ABS since 1984 plus all the other recent safety features,comfort,durability,functionality,long service intervals.As a general rul of thump,think of the GT as a 6 series BMW car on 2 wheels.I am sure if you stop by TriStar you will learn alot more.

  • Micky

    JoJo,
    True.. i even think the GW is very big -reliable thou-, but what about gear problems the K series hadhave, i checked a the forums and it is very common?

  • JoJo

    Micky,
    The K series has been in production since 1984 ( Yes 1984 ), so would BMW & it’s customers continue to produce,or buy a machine that has serious gear problem !! The gear issue was a know production glitch when the New K series was produced & was known to the factory in advance & they delayed deliveries until it was sorted out. From waht I understand TriStar locally has attended to any issue which was brought up even outside the warranty for one or two very early units. Remeber you are talking about a bike made in Germany by BMW !! Do you think the consumers will accept any known faults that has not been resolved ??
